What do bratwursts, Apple Beer, and entrepreneurship have in common? They are all items that were celebrated during e-Toberfest on the ninth floor of the Eccles Business Building this evening.

Students flooded the OC Tanner Lounge where they had access to unlimited food, beverages, and German cake—all for a $3 entrance fee.

“She did an amazing job organizing the whole event” e-Club President Paul Rossiter said speaking of the event planning e-Club Officer Bri Petersen did in preparation for the party. Petersen said that one of the main purposes of the party was to serve as a kick-off event for the upcoming Opportunity Quest competition. “Many of the students looked at this event as a chance to network with other student entrepreneurs, to get ideas and feedback as they work on their business plans in preparation for Opportunity Quest.”

In 2007 the Huntsman School of Business sent me, an old guy, on the first ever summer trip to South America. It was an amazing experience. I can't believe how much I learned and I wasn't even doing all the coursework. (I learned never to leave your airplane ticket out in plain sight, for example.)

It was impressive to see first-hand what our students are capable of accomplishing. It was amazing to see them operate an eye-glass clinic and to help out struggling entrepreneurs. They are holding an informational meeting on Oct. 28 at 4:30 p.m. in room 214. We have trips that go to Asia, South America and Eastern Europe. You should come and take this in and see what you can learn about the "Go Global" possibilities. Rumors are that many of the cool students in the college will be there and Liz Allred might even make an appearance. If you've ever seen Liz Allred in person, you'll know why it is an unforgetable experience. - Steve Eaton
