Transcript In a joint effort by the College of Business and its many organizations, cans were placed throughout Melcher Hall to collect food for the needy. Photo by Paul Nicosia Gotta Getta Job Undergraduates' career opportunities, personal experiences, and general sense of belonging can be increased by joining a business organization. "I don't know why more students don't take advantage of the opportunity to go further in their particular majors (by joining an organization)," said Sam Smith, a professor of marketing in the College of Business. Dottie Phillips, assistant director of student services in the college, said, "Recruiters aren't just looking for book learners anymore." Skills, contacts and experience gained through club membership, Phillips said, are useful for students pursuing any field.

During school years, organizations offer a sense of belonging, professionalism, accomplishment and friendship, said Lisa Cheek, a member of Delta Sigma Pi, a coed business fraternity. "The stranger, the newcomer or the individual who is relatively quiet can meet a lot of people, get involved in a lot of committee work and really find a comfortable role and warm reception in student activities," Smith said. — Denise Kersey Rose "Though organizations don't literally place people into jobs, Parker said, they do offer a connection to the business world."
