From November 11th to the 15th, Dr. Hartleroad, Jessica Hill (Class of 16) and I had the opportunity to attend the National Collegiate Honors Conference in Chicago, Illinois. Not only did we have the honor of attending, but we also had the chance to represent the Miller Business Honors Program by giving presentations over our Honors Program’s best practices. It was great to tell others about our program and get feedback on what we could be doing differently.

Dr. Gayle Hartleroad, Eli Parks, and I wore several different hats to embody different areas of our business honors program, ranging from administrator to student.

These firms ranged from small companies that are local to Muncie to three of the Big 4 accounting firms. Continue reading “Breakfast of Champions”

What started off as a cold, hour long bus ride to Fishers, Indiana, ended up as a striking success for the Miller College of Business at Ball State University. The first snowfall of the year decided to start on our way to the city just north of Indianapolis, and to our dismay, the heat on the bus failed to blow anything but cold air. About 16 current Miller Honors students attended the event, with four Miller Honors Alumni as well, in the hopes of recruiting some of the finest business students around.
