Scianna Hall Movie Night
Scianna Hall hosted its first movie night in the McDonnell Auditorium during the month of October. While watching "The Intern", we encouraged students to contemplate generational differences in the workplace and the problems they can present. We discovered that there is no substitute for real world experience! We will continue to host engaging opportunities like this throughout each semester.

HTM Students in Las Vegas
Hospitality and Tourism Management students attend the Global Food and Beverage Conference in Las Vegas, learning from professionals in the industry while networking.
PepsiCo/Frito-Lay representatives were invited to Mr. Chris Balaski's professional selling class to act as the customer while students tried to selling them Frito-Lay displays and products. One representative would act as the store owner who was meeting with the student, while the other three would observe and take notes during the interaction. Congratulations to senior Healthcare Marketing major Jordan Riekhof for being selected as the Sales Competition winner! She received Frito-Lay swag AND will get a bag of chips with her smile on it!
Study Abroad Fair
The Study Abroad Task Force, comprised of business faculty & staff, hosted the Study Abroad Fair to promote British Studies, Asian Studies, and Italian Studies programs. Each program set up a table to answer questions and provide information to students that were interested in participating. Additionally, students that have studied abroad in year's past were there to talk about what may be holding some students back from studying abroad and how to get past these barriers. While sharing information about the Summer 2020 opportunities, each program had samples of authentic food from their country, offering a taste of what students could be eating over the summer.
Faculty, staff and students on both the Hattiesburg and the Gulf Park campuses dressed up for Halloween this year! The School of Marketing hosted a Monster Mash with a costume contest, food, candy and prizes. Check out some of the best costumes of the day!
