Help Celebrate 75 Years of Business at VCU

On September 22, 1937, students attended the first business classes
at the Store Service Department of the forerunner of Virginia Commonwealth
University.  This fall, the business school
will kick-off a celebration of 75 years of Business at VCU during a week-long
series of events between September 17th and September 22nd,
2012.

This Thursday, April 26th, the Office of
Communications & Marketing will film a “teaser” video in the Snead Hall
Courtyard to boost awareness of the 75th Anniversary.  We need 250 volunteers and invite you to be a
part of this memorable experience.  The
video will air online and at major VCU Business functions leading up to
anniversary week.  The video shoot will
last from 1:45p.m. – 2:45p.m.

If you’re interested in attending the shoot and can commit an
hour of your time on Thursday afternoon, please click the link below to RSVP
and receive more details.  25 randomly
selected volunteers will win a prize from the VCU Business School Store.  Water and snacks will be provided for all
volunteers.

Yes, I volunteer for the VCU Business 75th
Anniversary teaser video shoot on Thursday, 4/26/2012.

We look forward to seeing as many students, alumni, faculty and staff as possible on
Thursday.

(In the event of rain, volunteers will meet in the Snead
Hall Atrium – the alternate location for the video shoot)

Management Prof. Randolph “Randy” Barker has received extensive media coverage for his collaborative study published in the March issue of the International Journal of Workplace Health Management.  The study found that dogs in the workplace may buffer the impact of stress during the workday for their owners and make the job more satisfying for those with whom they come into contact.
