Weekly Events

The International Food Festival (IFF) is one of the most exciting and highly awaited events of the year. Organized by the International Students Association (ISA), this event is open to MBA, MA and MSA students.

This year, the IFF will be held on Friday, Sept. 17, at the Worrell Courtyard, from 5-7:30 pm. Come join your fellow students for a fun-filled evening and experience a wide variety of global cultures and cuisines. Have fun cooking with your team and enjoy delicacies from all over the world. Students, faculty and guests will cast their votes for the best dishes - the top three teams win exciting prizes!


The Graduate Finance Club wanted to invite you to a presentation by Jim Dunn in Room 3209 on Sept. 15 at 4:30 pm. Come and learn from an experienced investment professional about effective strategies for investing, as well as hear his thoughts on the state of the economy and where he sees opportunities for growth in the near future.

Dunn is an excellent resource for students and, even if you are not preparing for a career in the financial industry, this is an outstanding opportunity to better understand the markets and gain tips on securing a great internship/job in this difficult hiring environment.


The Museum of Anthropology’s annual exhibit, Dias de los Muertos (Days of the Dead), will open Sept. 14 and close Dec. 17 and will feature a traditional Mexican ofrenda: a home altar with sugar skulls, colorful tissue paper cutouts, food and beverage offerings, marigolds, and photos of deceased relatives to honor the dead. The exhibit includes a section focusing on traditional Mexican crafts associated with the celebration. A children’s ofrenda and a photo essay illustrating different aspects of the celebration will also be on display. This exhibit features text in English and Spanish.


And further out… Get ready to Hit the Bricks, the official benefit event for the Brian Piccolo Cancer Drive, on Sept. 30. Teams of 7-15 participants will be competing against one another in a competition designed to raise both money and awareness for the fight against cancer.

The deadline to register for the event is Tuesday, Sept. 28 at noon. All registration is now online.
