During my years in the LundyFetterman School of Business, I have witnessed the remarkable transformation that occurs in our students. As freshmen their focus is “what can you do for me; how will you help me be successful academically; how will you help me choose the right majors; how will you help me find a job?” By their last year the attitude is “what can I do to help you?” Their attitude of service is key to their development as responsible individuals, which is the major focus of our mission. Employers of our graduates appreciate their excellent work ethic, but more importantly, they find the servant attitude of our graduates refreshingly unique. This Campbell transformation results from the university experiences of our students, both in their courses and beyond the classroom. Students have opportunities to serve as upperclass student mentors to new students; to be mentored by executives in the business world; to serve as residence hall assistants and directors; to work as interns in various employment locations; to tutor other students; to lead in student organizations; to become members of honor societies; to serve with me on an undergraduate advisory committee to me; to become members of honor societies; and to lead in Bible studies with other students. These experiences help in shaping their transformation. The Lundy-Fetterman School of Business is a great place to be a student, and we hope you decide to join us in your educational journey.
