Left Border Exciting News Right Border

Recently the E-Board of Enactus had the wonderful opportunity to travel to Washington DC to attend the Fall Leadership conference. The team spent three days attending workshops that focused on the rebranding of the organization, building a strong team, generating effective projects, and how to prepare for interviews. On the third day, after the leadership conference ended, the students made their way to view the 2012 World Cup opening ceremony. The World Cup brings together the National Champions from all 39 countries. Prior to the opening ceremony each National Champion participates in a culture fair, where each team displays items from their country. After the Culture fair, the world cup ceremony takes place where each National Champion walks across the stage with their countries flag in hand. When the team got to the school, the team did some reorganization of their projects and the team as a whole.

Anna Wilson, '06 Marketing

"Lake State is a local University that gave me the option to earn my education while located close to my family. My short-term goal is to gain as much experience as possible in the community and to possibly continue my education toward a Masters Degree. Id like to continue my work within the city and take advantage of opportunities to be more involved in local politics. In the long term, after Ive made myself as competitive as possible in the marketing field, Id like to get a job at a medium to large size company and work more with individual products or brands as opposed to marketing a company itself."
