Transcript BUSINESS WORLD IBCO members enjoy benefits of diverse organization Picture this: An exotic belly- dancer gyrates across the floor dressed in bright colors. A waiter lifts up a table with his mouth. People link arms and dance around the room. Foreign dishes surround you. On March 3, members of International Business and Cultural Organization (IBCO) partook in a scenario such as the one above while dining at the Great Greek, a Greek restaurant. ' 'Although we do hold many social outings, IBCO is more educationally oriented than socially," said IBCO President Mita Nagar. The main purpose of IBCO is for people to learn more about different cultures. According to IBCO Secretary Scott Stonestreet, in the past, IBCO was more concerned about social activities. "I believe that the reason for our drawing more towards education is because people are becoming more aware of the importance of business, and that is one of the reasons for our diverse membership;' said Scott. IBCO has members with majors ranging from history to biochemistry. Some members believe that culture plays a part in education. "I think its important that we learn about different cultures; IBCO provides such an understanding. However, IBCO lacks white Americans, who need to understand the similarities and differences between cultures. Only then will they begin to appreciate different cultures," said Senior Marketing Major Lobo Del Sol. For the first time, IBCO is offering two Scholarships. Each is worth $200. This is most beneficial for international students. For example, an international student pays around $1650 for 12 hours. If such a student receives a scholarship, he would only have to pay the same as a state resident minus the amount of the scholarship. An international student could save as much as $1465 a semester. One must be enrolled for at least 12 hours and meet certain grade requirements to receive the scholarship. "I came up with the idea to award scholarships after seeing many students, leave because they could not make ends meet. I was once an international student, but I was fortunate to have the money to pay for my education," said Nagar. Financial need is also considered while determining award recipients. The Dean of Busi- ness Scholarship Committee will determine the amount of priority placed upon financial need. In addition, one does not need to be a business major to qualify. IBCO also invited some important professionals such as the Director of International Commerce to speak at career day. The speakers prepared and informed the students on career searching. IBCO also invited speakers on occasion to help enhance students knowledge concerning the business community. IBCO's next step was holding an Open House, so students had a chance to meet the faculty, teacher assistants, and deans. Dung A. Nguyen said, "At IBCO's first restaurant outing I got a chance to meet Indian people for the first time. I have learned to be more open-minded." Stonestreet says, "Heck — sometimes I don't even know what I'm eating, but the real purpose of IBCO is to learn different ways and customs to begin your search.' ► Shilpa Trivedi IBCO members — 1st row: Futema Jafri, Aarti Mahesh- wari, Mita Nagar, Seema Si- kand, Claire Lin, Sandy Ho-a- thian; 2nd row: Sunil Yadav, Howard Hall, Al Mohammad, Eileen Sambilay, William Teng, Atul Moonat, Shilpa Trivedi, guest, Loan Tran, Scott Stun- street, Roy Foley, Aasim Karim, Steven Watts, David Roeder, guest, Harold Wray, Sabina Si- kand, Gaurov Sood.
