For alumni like Angelica Morrow, ’18, assistant marketing and digital media director at Five Points Bank, the Bash served as a catalyst for finding her college career.

“At the Back to School Bash, I met many students, faculty and staff who I talked with throughout my college career. Because they knew about my involvement at the college, I was asked to speak on stage during the opening of Hawks Hall and featured in a story. That led to meeting an alum who offered me a job before I even graduated,” she said. “Be sure to attend the Bash and make some new connections.”

Sponsoring the Back to School Bash for the eighth year, Sandhills Global hosts a booth at the event where students can learn more about the information processing company headquartered in Lincoln. A proud alum of the college, Nancy Paasch, ’06, chief administration officer at Sandhills Global, looks forward to the annual event in Howard L. Hawks Hall.

“Sandhills Global is proud to partner with the College of Business at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln on many events and initiatives, including the Back to School Bash. Our future business leaders will have valuable roles in the advancement of our community, and Sandhills appreciates the opportunity to build relationships with students and foster the business program's success,” she said.
