During one class session, the professor announced that Dr. Dwight Israelsen and Dr. Tyler Bowles were going to hold a one-time lecture about the collapse and subsequent bail out of the U.S. economy. I decided at that moment that I would attend the lecture, thinking that maybe a couple dozen students would show up. I showed up five minutes late and there wasn’t an empty seat in the room.
I bring this up because it illustrates the interest and curiosity of students in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business. We really do care about world events and how it affects us. We appreciate it when our professors make an effort to include current events into class lectures.
I want to thank the professors at the Huntsman School of Business for staying up-to-date in their material and keeping us engaged in the ever-changing state of the world economy. I also want to thank my classmates for their close observation of the news that has allowed them to ask informed questions and create interesting discussions in class.
