Students planning club for minorities in business

As a school, we have long distinguished ourselves as a leader in business education, and we are in the process of distinguishing ourselves as a leader in our engagement and support of an increasingly diverse professional community, here in the Twin Cities metropolitan area and throughout the Midwest. Therefore it is very timely that we’d see student organizations springing up on our campus in response to the intersection of these two forces. Our student news site, Tommie Media, recently reported that a group of St. Thomas students are planning a business club for minorities and expect to officially launch it this fall:

It may bes another cold morning, but as Minnesotans we’re proud of our weather as evidenced by the St. Paul Winter Carnival.

As our campus news, Tommie Media reports: A St. Thomas senior and a 2008 graduate were part of the 2011 St. Paul Winter Carnival royal family. This year’s West Wind princess crown belongs to senior Bridget Rissmann. Graduate Madalyn Dosch was crowned the carnival’s Queen of the Snows.

“Going to St. Thomas really was three years of service for me,” Dosch said. “I learned values of community and what it means to have a really strong network of friends and family because they’re there to support you.”

More information on the carnival and the coronation are available from Tommie Media and the Pioneer Press.

The article, “Forget what you know about good study habits,” explains that recent research supports the idea that some study strategies work better than others.

Academic Support Center Director David Moore said they usually tell students to find a good, quiet location so they can completely focus.

“But this research is pretty interesting,” Moore said. “If you’re doing things in different places, your mind might make better connections.” Continue Reading
