The Business Learning Communities (BLC) offer programs and events throughout the year that participants are invited and encouraged to attend. The activities are designed to help students grow academically, professionally, personally, and socially -- helping them to become well-rounded students and highly qualified business professionals. Examples of BLC activities include:
Back to School Bash -
The College of Business welcomes students back for the fall semester with pizza, drinks, live music, prizes and more!
Challenge Course -
Students work as a team to overcome challenges, build teamwork, leadership, and communication skills, while learning when to lead and follow, through the Campus Recreation Challenge Course.
B-Week (Business Week) -
Celebrate the College of Business! Students celebrate our college by hosting a variety of student-led activities and inviting business speakers.
One and DONE! -
A celebratory social of your first month at UNL with former BLC students.
Major Showcase -
Students can learn from College of Business academic advisors and career coaches about each major and its applications with career opportunities.
Freshman Advising Nights -
Academic Advisors hold special individual evening advising appointments in the students’ residence halls; this is a special perk as students do not have to schedule other individual appointments during a busy time of year.
BIG Trip with Learning Communities -
The College of Business join other Nebraska Learning Communities on a trip to a larger mid-Western city to experience
“behind the scenes” business tours, professional networking opportunities, exploring the local cultural/theater scene,
while also having the chance to try out the local entertainment. The BIG Trip is a semester highlight!
Student Organization Fair, Career Fairs, and Education Abroad Fairs -
Students are encouraged to explore the possibilities on campus, professionally, and internationally through Nebraska sponsored Student Organization, Career, and Education Abroad fairs. The experiential opportunities help students build their resumes, gain core competencies, and enhance college experiences.
Campus Activities and Events -
Students are invited to attend campus events and participate in activities, such as intramural sports, campus concerts, speakers, cultural programming, music/theater performances, and so much more!
Professional Workshops and Events -
Employers, professionals, and guests often provide opportunities for students to grow personally and professionally. Learning Community students are encouraged to attend the events in order to network with employers and explore career options.
Student Programs (mentor sponsored) -
The Learning Community Peer Mentors sponsor a variety of social, academic, and professional related events for students to get to know one another, explore campus activities, and have fun!
