Students place at national conference
Augusta, Ga. – Four Augusta State University students recently placed in the top 10 of competitive events at the 2007 National Leadership Conference of Phi Beta Lambda in Chicago, Ill. Phi Beta Lambda is the college version of Future Business Leaders of America and is the world’s largest business student organization. Each year’s conference brings the best and brightest to learn, network, and compete in business-oriented events.
“Hull College students once again ‘brought home the gold’ from the Phi Beta Lambda National Leadership Conference,” says Todd Schultz, associate dean of the Hull College of Business and faculty advisor for ASU’s Phi Beta Lambda chapter. “There is more to Phi Beta Lambda and the National Leadership Conference than the competitions, but the events provide the most excitement. These sorts of successes are supporting documentation for our learning outcomes and are strong, external measures of the Hull Advantage.”
According to David Harris, a recent graduate who placed in two events, ASU’s chapter typically has a strong showing.
“The Augusta State chapter consistently performs at a high level at the state and national competitions, and I was very pleased to put forth a great effort this year in Chicago,” he says.
