Honors at Autzen

On Saturday November 22, the Lundquist College’s Undergraduate Business Honors Program hosted more than 80 alumni and current students for a tailgate celebration before the Ducks played the Colorado Buffaloes.

The reunion provided current students with the opportunity to connect with program alumni and gain insight into transitioning into the professional world, as well as network for future internship and job opportunities.

Attendees socialized over a catered barbecue. In addition to meeting alumni, students had the opportunity to socialize with current honors faculty and Lundquist College administration.

“It was great to spend time with alumni, faculty, and my peers outside of the traditional classroom setting, I look forward to coming back as an alumni next year,” said Maury Bardovi, a current senior in the program.

In addition to benefiting current students, the event served as a great opportunity for alumni to give back to the program they graduated from.

The Honors Program has focused on bridging the gap between current students and alumni and the tailgate was another great way of achieving that goal. In addition to the tailgate, the program will host both current students and alumni for dinner and a question and answer panel at its annual networking event in downtown Portland next term.
