Davis said that all of the gifts were donated by local area business. An eating contest took place, where the winner received a $30 gift certificate. Participants were also given a prize for participating.“Many of the business owners are alumni of Marshall, if not specifically from the college of business.” Davis said.Davis said that the business owners are given the opportunity to market themselves to the future generation who may become business owners with in the local area.Davis said that she feels the birthday bash was excellent.“A lot of people were concerned about rain, but there is a zero percent chance of rain for today. Our main goal of the bash is to get the students out, since it is the end of the year, and get students interacting with the faculty. It looked like everyone had a good time.”Davis said that those who are interested in the programs offered at the college of business should come and check it out.“We offer majors for any different personality type. In anything you do you will be working for a business and even if it is not your major, you could look into a minor.”Davis said the advising facility is opened from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.Josh Mcadoo, a college of business graduate assistant, said the festivities were great.“Hopefully students learn about the college of business and become more organizations within the college of business.”Mcadoo also said that he was present with his office and the student organization, Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). He said that being able to take what is learned in the classroom and being able to apply it before you go out in the professional world is offered to the students in the college.“I am here to support my organization and my college.” Macadoo said, “If you join the college of business you won’t be disappointed.”Ebony Robinson can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
