Ronda Callister
Ronda Callister speaks at a TEDxUSU event.
Professor Ronda Callister had to compete to become one of just eight presenters at the first ever TEDxUSU event, held in November. She used her requisite "18 minutes of innovative ideas" to describe the powerful, world-changing effects that would likely ensue from enabling women to become full contributors to human well-being and progress.

The TED Talks organization moves some TED videos from YouTube to the official website, if the videos get a lot of "likes" or go "viral." So there is now a push at Utah State to let people know about Professor Callister's video in the hope that it will be chosen for that step. Click here to read more.

They have attracted the attention of publications such as Time Magazine and television station KSL in Salt Lake City.

They tapped the talents of a friend and Brigham Young University graduate, James Dayton, to make some of their first videos.Click here to read more.

Huntsman Student Spotlight
Steven Espinoza
Steven Espinoza has a packed schedule that he manages by prioritizing.
Huntsman Scholar Steven Espinoza is focused on experiencing all that the Huntsman School of Business has to offer. He says college should be prioritized with the three S's: studies, social life, and sleep--in that order.

"And if you want to be successful in one," he said, "you have to give up something somewhere else."

A typical day for Steven starts early and ends late. He is taking 20 credits, earning straight As, working as an undergraduate teaching fellow for two classes, and contributing as a Huntsman Scholar. Click here to read more.
It's not every day in the business world that men and women are encouraged to sport beards.

It happened on Friday, Nov. 30, however, when students participated in the Huntsman School of Business' first-ever Marketing Case Competition for a client whose specialty just happens to be beards.

Beard Beanie, a local company that produces beanies with knitted beards, was the client in this competition that heard and judged five marketing pitches from participating student groups who had only just received the case-study information the night before. Click here to read more.
