Community Events

We volunteer for community nonprofits, visit local companies, take an early fall whitewater rafting retreat together, and work on our own on-floor social activities.


The course curriculum traditionally involves two levels of activities:

  1. Visits with local executives, either at their workplaces or in our class
  2. Projects to improve the profitability of the activities of Aramark, the Fortune 500 campus food vendor. These projects are student designed and led and can explore management, finance, marketing, HR, supply chain management, accounting, or any other aspect of their operations on campus.

Faculty-in-Residence for the COBE LLC is in transition.
