Homecoming Reunites Alumni and Friends

Reception_2010_300
We just celebrated UAB’s homecoming with a great week of festivities for students, staff, and alumni. The UAB School of Business, with help from the Business Student Leaders and other business student organizations, hosted fundraisers, tailgates, and guest speakers. The MBA Alumni Association welcomed Mr. Don James, CEO of Vulcan Materials, as a guest speaker for their quarterly breakfast. The International Business Association hosted Dr. Erik Angner who discussed business in Sweden and Spain while The Association of Internet Technology Professionals hosted Mr. Kristy Smith from CTS who discussed trends in technology related careers. With dunking booths, bake sales, and guests coming to the School of Business, it was a great opportunity to showcase the enthusiasm and talent we have here. We were thrilled to have more participation than we have in previous years and had more student organization involvement than ever!

This year we hosted a reception for alumni. There was a great turnout at the Alys Stephens Center to enjoy cocktails and live music. It was the perfect time to reunite alumni and friends from the Birmingham area as well as offer an opportunity to meet the new department chairs and hear from Dean Klock. We look forward to more events and opportunities to involve you in the School as well as reunite you with classmates and friends!  see photos from homecoming-
