On Wednesday, September 17, 2003, the Marketing and Sales Executives of Detroit (MSED) recognized five college students for excellence in the study of Marketing and presented each of them with a scholarship in the amount of $2,000. Two UDM students were among the five recipients honored: Gabriela Hinojosa and Kenneth J. Muller, both seniors majoring in Business.

The tradition of Dean’s Dogs, the annual CBA cookout, continued. This year’s event was held on October 9 with approximately 100 people in attendance. The event, which was co-sponsored by the College and the CBA Student Advisory Board, allows new and returning students, staff and faculty of the College to socialize and get reacquainted after the summer. This year’s chefs included Jacqueline Bell, assistant to the director of graduate programs, and Wendy Marshall, assistant to the undergraduate office.

The Beta Gamma Sigma Student Leadership Forum was held in Baltimore, Maryland from October 30 through November 2. Attendance at the Forum is limited to 75 students, each of whom must be a member of Beta Gamma Sigma (the National Honorary Society for students in Business) and each of whom must be nominated by their school's chapter. In addition to participating in an outstanding program for future business leaders, attendees have the opportunity to compete for a $2,500 Leadership Award. Senior Dominic Paluzzi, who was one of the six finalist for the Leadership Award, represented UDM at the conference. He was awarded a $250 check.

2004 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of the UDM chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the national accounting honor society. Look for forthcoming information on recognition activities this year.
