Favorite BC Memory: “Dublin, Ireland trip abroad with BC friends Julia Cox and Kyle Moukheiber

“Being an out of state student coming to UofI I wasn’t quite sure how I’d fit in until I found Business Council. I found my best friends, travel buddies, roommates and more through this organization and can’t thank my freshman year self enough for going for it!”

Favorite BC Memory: “Fall 20 new member retreat at Kickapoo!

“The most common thing you’ll hear from members is the “BC family” and there’s a reason it’s so commonly used. BC is the most accepting, encouraging, and forward thinking group of people I have ever been a part of. They’ve given me multiple formal opportunities to improve my leadership, professional, and philanthropic skills, as well as informally help with courses or even just a smiling face you’ll see in BIF. Join BUSINESS COUNCIL!!!!! <3”

Favorite BC Memory: “My favorite BC memory is definitely my New Member Retreat! My class was completely inseparable after this trip and it was such an awesome bonding experience with the executive board as well.”

“Business Council has impacted my life in more ways than I can even describe. As a professional, I have grown more in the past two semesters than I ever imagined. BC events have allowed me to feel comfortable in professional settings and have given me more opportunities than I can count. However, the biggest gift by far that Business Council has given me is introducing me to my best friends. Business Council is the most supportive, loving, and fun family on campus and I am so lucky to be a part of it!”

Favorite BC Memory: “Going to Florida for winter break with 10 of my best friends in BC!

“BC has given me a home away from home and friends I will cherish forever. The friends and relationships I’ve made in BC are lifelong. I have grown so much because of the support and love we have all given each other throughout my time in BC. I can confidently say that BC has been the biggest and most positive impact in my time at UIUC, and I don’t know where I would be without these amazing people!”

“BC has impacted my life by introducing me to the most driven, inspiring, and inclusive people on campus! It has allowed me to develop professionally and given me mentors that have shared amazing advice with me. I have made some of my best college memories with members of BC- even though I have only been in it for a semester. I’m forever grateful for this organization!”
