Service is an important part of the experience at the Huntsman School of Business. We are encouraged to look for ways to serve and to give back, whether on campus or to our communities. As part of the annual Business Week service project, students planned a three-hour service challenge entitled Huntsman Gives Back. Huntsman students gathered donations from companies throughout the State of Utah for items to create cancer comfort kits. Hundreds of students from across campus participated in the service challenge to build comfort kits with lip balm, granola bars and personalized greeting cards.
Over 250 kits were donated to the Logan Regional Hospital Cancer Center. Lacey Fellows, a registered nurse at the Logan Cancer Center, remarked on the impact of the donation by saying, “This is so generous. We have so many patients going through cancer treatments in our valley, and we are so grateful for the generosity Huntsman students have showed our patients.”
Tess Arnold, a sophomore Marketing major, commented, “My favorite thing about Huntsman Gives Back was seeing students come together. Service pulls in students from all of the USU colleges, and I love to see how students across USU push one another to “Dare Mighty Things.” Regardless of the college, all USU students have the ability to work together to accomplish incredible things.”
#HuntsmanGiveBack is the hashtag used on social media platforms to document service projects throughout the Huntsman School.
