We have a great Club at OSU that's focused on sustainability, it's called Net Impact.
There's some things to know about it, 1) It's not just a Spears School of Business Club.
We're here at Spears School of Business but any student, anywhere in the university is invited, and welcome to participate even if you're not a club member. You can come in and participate in any of our events. Of course, we'd love for you to join!
What do we do? Well we're a little bit about networking, and we're a little bit about professionalism, and we're a little bit about having fun. So, this semester, our first event, will be at the end of January, or mid to end of January and we have a a round table on sustainability jobs. So professionals who are working in the sustainability space, we're going to come to Spears, either in person or virtually, or both in some cases, and um and talk to us about the opportunities that are out there, answer questions if you're interested. You'll see some flyers about that.
At the end of January, the very last day, I'm hosting an outdoor orientation Workshop i.e. how to backpack, without freezing or dying and at the end of February, we're going to go on that backpacking trip. We're going to go over to Arkansas, and take an overnight, and everything's paid for by the club. Then finally um at the end of the semester we have a tradition in dead week, where we host a barbecue, kayaking and yoga afternoon at Lake McMurtry. Everybody gets together, I cook the burgers and we just hang out and have a good time. I can tell you one thing too, that we're planning for the fall, and that is kind of a mini sustainability conference that will be at Spears and that'll be through Net impact.
