Originally from Northfield, Joe Dixon is a junior majoring in Finance and Real Estate and participating in the London Business Semester this fall. We asked him to send us some thoughts about his adventure. Here’s what he wrote.
Thank you to all who participated in the first-year Shirting Event on September 17th. The program advisors and business faculty all enjoyed meeting you. We are looking forward to working with you over the next four years!

You may have questions about how the beginning accounting courses have changed this fall. If you have taken or are taking BUSN 201, you might be looking for ACCT 205 as your next business course. That course is now gone and has become two, ACCT 210 (financial accounting) and 215 (managerial accounting). Since those of you who completed BUSN 201 have only planned for one accounting course, ACCT 210 (financial) will fulfill your requirement unless you’re planning to major in accounting, in which case you need to take both ACCT 210 and ACCT 215. If you have any questions about this or any other business classes, please contact your advisor in the Opus College of Business.

If you are thinking about studying abroad during the Spring semester, it’s time to get the ball rolling. All application materials are due to the International Edcuation Center – IEC – by Wednesday, October 1. If you have not yet done so, stop by the IEC for a first-step meeting. An advisor in the IEC can give you information about many different programs and countries, help you choose a program that fits your needs, and can assist with the application process. You can call the IEC for an appointment at 651.962.6450.

As the days get cooler and the leaves start to change, plans change from summer fun to group projects and class readings- and now blogs. What is the purpose of all these different blogs you might wonder? UST has a new one, and we do too.
Our hope with this blog is to keep you up to date with what is going on in the Opus College of Business and what you can do to remain active in your college career and stay on track for graduation. Rather than inundating you with emails every time something you should know pops into our head, we will post it to the blog. It will remain there forever, so anytime you need to find the answer, it will be there, instead of in the recycling bin!
Also take this opportunity to post comments or questions on the blog. Ask questions of the advisors or share ideas and answers with your fellow peers. And check back at least every week, if not more often, to find out what we are up to!
