Back to Business Bash

The Cameron University School of Business and Agriculture Department host the Back to Business Bash on Thursday, August 28, 2014.  The event provides students, faculty and local business professionals the opportunity to meet in a relaxed environment before the semester begins.

“There are never enough opportunities to prepare business students for the corporate world,” says John Camey, Dean, Cameron University School of Business.  “We are looking to provide our students more opportunities on campus to network with business professionals and truly cultivate their social skills in a professional capacity.”

The annual Back to Business Bash includes food and entertainment for all students and faculty.  Traditionally, the School of Business has hosted this event and this year the Ag Department co-hosts.  A unique aspect provided by the Ag Department is their provision of sustainable food items, which ties to the university’s sustainability theme this year.  Agribusiness is extremely important in southwest Oklahoma.  Since Agribusiness students take business courses, this event introduces those students to the business faculty. 

Also this year, local business and Ag business professionals are invited to participate.  A key aspect in business is the ability to network and promote yourself to professionals.  Inviting local business professionals to Back to Business Bash allows students the opportunity to experience networking.

“The Cameron University Department of Agriculture is dedicated to providing a quality education to our students in and out of the classroom environment,” says Dr. Leon Fischer, Chair, Department of Agriculture.  “Cameron agriculture students have the potential to greatly impact the lives of consumers around the country, starting right here at Cameron and our local community.”

The School of Business and Agriculture Department strive to educate and prepare their students to become skilled professionals who will add value to their organizations and communities.  Community relations are a key aspect in any business.  The Back to Business Bash offers students the opportunity to meet members of the local community, business and agriculture professionals and faculty who they will depend on to guide them through their college career.

The Back to Business Bash is 4pm to 8pm, August 28, on the east Cynthia S. Ross Hall lawn at Cameron University.  The event is free and open to all students, faculty and members of the business community.
