Graduating Class Survives Final Exams
Shrugging off fatique from finals (finished a few hours prior), business graduates enjoy a BBQ just outside the School of Business building where all that anguish occurred.
Grads Celebrate Their Big Day
Amid the celebrations (and sad farewells), some of the robed scholars pause here for a picture.
WWU Takes Home a Medal in the Tax Challenge
WWU once again took home the silver medal in the 2013 UW Tax Challenge, along with mega-bucks of cool-green prize money. Over the years, WWU has placed in the top three spots multiple times; in 2011, it took home both the gold and bronze awards. Sponsored by the University of Washington and Big 4 accounting firms, the goal of the Tax Challenge is to do a complex tax return with the least number of errors possible. Every year, WWU competes against a number of major NorthWest universities and colleges. Some of the more creative WWU team names include "Taxletes" and "Intaxicated."
Asian Study Tour
Students broaden their world view on the Asian Study Tour
Keeping Warm in a Winter Wonderland
Students relax at Lehman Hot Springs in the Oregon outback. It does the soul good to take a break from the books, throw snowballs, relax in the warm water, and then worship together around a crackling woodstove.
Nothin' Like the Real World
Summer interns beam at the camera. Our interns gain hands-on experience tackling businesses challenges, whether it's creating a marketing plan, building a database, or preparing a budget.
Preparing for White Water
Business students nervously ready their raft for the roaring rapids that await around the corner on the Deschutes River This white-knuckle experience teaches students some key business lessons, such as the principle of risk and reward.
Guest Lecture Series
Several times a quarter, successful business people share their stories and advice with students as part of our formal Colloquium series.
Tours Spark Student Interest
Students enjoy seeing business concepts put into practice as they tour a variety of local businesses and large corporations in Seattle and Portland.
And the Race is On
Since competition is a basic premise of the business world, our students hone their skills on go-karts.
Democracy in Action
As part of the School of Business Student Advisory Council, students provide guidance on a range of issues including faculty hires, curriculum, academic policies and school events.
Over the last decade, many of the student association presidents and other officers have been business students.
Serving the Community
The School of Business takes a whole day off from studying to perform community service. Here business students pick up trash along a designated, two-mile section of Highway 12. On this particular day, over 60 large bags of trash were collected, including a dozen nice hubcaps.
Food, Fun & Fellowship in the Park
The Business Club hosts its popular BBQ, where good food and fun people make for a great evening.
Without a doubt, some of the best skiing in the nation can be found in the Northwest. Here some business students are enjoying a ski-weekend at Mt. Hood.
Hooting with the owls late Saturday night is a popular thing with the Business Club, which rents a whole bowling alley for students to hang out and have some fun. Whether they can soar with the eagles the next day is another question entirely.
Moments of Quiet Reflection
There's nothing quite like getting away from the books and buzz to re-prioritize and re-juvenate.
