More than a dozen high school students attended the Business Experience and Scholarship Challenge event at Wright State University on Jan. 25.
The event was an opportunity for the faculty and staff at the Raj Soin College of Business to meet prospective students and brag about the state-of-the-art facility and supportive faculty.
Students had the opportunity to compete in several challenges and meet with corporate advisers for a chance to win a $1,000 scholarship.
“It’s been a great day,” said William Shaffer, a senior at St. Francis DeSales High School. Shaffer plans to attend Wright State in the fall and major in finance. “I came here and immediately fell in love with the campus and it just feels like home.”
High school students and their parents were also able to learn about the college’s collaboration with the business community and alumni.
“I get the opportunity to tell them why it’s such a fantastic place to be,” said Andy Kaiser, chief financial officer at Cincinnati Bell and a 1991 Wright State graduate.
