The University of Nebraska–Lincoln College of Business Administration celebrated 100 years of educating business leaders on Friday, Aug. 23 with a back to school bash. More than 650 College of Business Administration students, parents, faculty, staff, alumni and business partners attended the celebration. Earlier in the week, Governor Dave Heineman proclaimed the day as the 100th Anniversary of the College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
“The back to school bash was a huge success and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 100th anniversary,” said Dr. Donde Plowman, James Jr. and Susan Stuart Endowed Dean of the College of Business Administration. “I loved meeting all the students, parents, alumni and business partners who are a part of our CBA community. They are what make CBA successful.”
The bash was held on the west side of the CBA building. The free event included Valentino’s pizza, prizes, and the band Lemon Fresh Day. Those attending the bash also had the opportunity to learn about student services offered in CBA including career services, undergraduate advising and information technology. Attendees were also encouraged to connect with CBA on social media and as a CBA Insider. A photo booth was also available to remember the day.
“The bash was a great way to start the semester with live music, good food and new ways to get connected in CBA,” said Kelly Sturek, junior entrepreneurial management major from Las Vegas, Nev. “It really showed me what an incredible community we have in the College of Business Administration.”
The College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln serves more than 3,500 students by providing undergraduate and master’s programs, and is the only Ph.D. granting business college in Nebraska. Established in 1913, the college was a founding member of and accredited by the AACSB.
