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:
CBA Back to School Bash -
CBA 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 UNL Campus Recreation Challenge Course.
Chat and Chow with Faculty -
Faculty members join students for lunch in the dining hall to build professional and academic connections.
B-Week (Business Week) -
Celebrate CBA! Students celebrate CBA by hosting a variety of student-led activities and inviting business speakers.
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 -
CBA joins other UNL 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!
Business Networking and Industry Visits -
Students have the opportunity to network with local business leaders on campus through CBA Career Services Employer in Residence Program and well as occasionally tour local business sites and network with business professionals and alumni.
Student Organization Fair, Career Fair, and Education Abroad Fairs -
Students are encouraged to explore the possibilities on campus, professionally, and internationally through UNL 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!
