Business Week is underway at the Huntsman School of Business, and it aims to introduce students to a host of clubs, activities, and programs, while mixing in a service project and a free concert by a group called Recycled Percussion.

In recent years, students at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business have spent much of Business Week raising money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute. This year the students contributed time, instead, by participating in an all-day service project aimed at directly benefiting Institute patients, said Huntsman Business Senator Jeff Parker.

Starfleet Communicator Badge
By Steve Eaton

I had a vocational nightmare once that nearly spoiled all things Star Trek for me for years to come.

I used to work for a large company that would give out bonuses to employees as incentives when the company did well. Several times they held a big event to announce the results. I was a member of a small group of communications people who were tasked with making this announcement event memorable and motivational. We took great pride in our work and the rare opportunity to be truly creative.
