A special thanks to you

| Gretchen Hutterli

A special thanks to everyone who helped the College of Business celebrate its 50th Anniversary during the university's Centennial Homecoming. Each of you in your own way have played an important role in where we are as a college today. Our success starts with you.

For those of you who couldn't join us, please view a presentation highlighting our 50 years on our Facebook page

We would be amiss if we didn't recognize the following people who helped make our event a success.

Thank you to our musicians--Troppo Big Band Jazz Orchestra directed by our very own management prof, Robert Heintz, and the student a cappella group The Innocent Men. WOW, you were wonderful!!! It is absolutely impossible not to have a great time when two outstanding musical groups are entertaining us.

A special shout out to all of our COB student orgs for hosting rooms during our open house. You did a wonderful job telling your organization's story. Thank you to our student org advisors who assisted with this project.
