Students, alumni, and friends from the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business will be gathering at the Nelson Fieldhouse at 6 p.m., Friday, Sept. 30, to watch the USU vs. BYU game on a big-screen TV and they are expecting to see a repeat of last year’s victory.

The festivities will be the last event of the Huntsman School’s annual Business Week, which will conclude Friday, Sept. 30.

Eric Schulz, the co-director of strategic marketing at the Huntsman School of Business, said this year’s Business Week activities are designed to engage the students and help them interact and network with alumni and business professionals.

“The whole week will be fun and exciting for all the students, alumni, faculty, and friends who choose to get involved,” said Mr. Schulz. “And we’re planning on wrapping up the week’s events with a repeat of last year’s big win over BYU.”

Business Week 2011 will kick off  Friday, Sept. 23, at 10 a.m., with the Huntsman School Charity Golf Tournament at the Logan River Golf Course, giving students and alumni the opportunity to network on the course or at lunch, plus the chance to win prizes.

Participants line up to particpate in the Last Dash Relay in 2010.

The Last Dash Relay will take place Tuesday, Sept. 27, with a start time of 5:30 p.m. Proceeds from the Business Week golf tournament and race will go to fund cancer research at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Online registration is now open for both events.

The Dean’s Convocation, held in the George S. Eccles Business Building on Wednesday, Sept. 28, will feature Dell Loy and Lynette Hansen, the owners of Wasatch Property Management.

Alumni interested in attending the Student/Alumni Networking Dinner the evening of Sept. 28 should contact Dave Patel at dave.patel@usu.edu by Friday, Sept. 9.

The Dean’s office will be hosting “Dogs with the Dean's” at noon Tuesday, Sept. 27. Dean Douglas D. Anderson and Associate Deans Ken Snyder and Jef Doyle will be serving students and alumni hot dogs, chips, and drinks on the patio outside the George S. Eccles Business Building.
