 Krannert Graduate Student Association (KGSA) Update

By Kenyon Mumford, KGSA President

These are exciting times at Krannert. The new building across the street will confirm our place in the ranks of the elite business schools. The course offerings for the master's programs continue to expand. The numerous student-run clubs are multiplying, enriching the experience of all who participate. And, we can be proud of our intramural championship-winning basketball team.

A major role of the KGSA has always been to promote social interaction among the students. Rest assured, that mission will continue to be important to us. This year we are looking to create more opportunities for families to participate by having our social activities in settings where spouses and children can feel comfortable. We also helped Krannert international students experience more of American culture by introducing them to one of our true national treasures, Wrigley Field, as we attended a Cubs game in September. Our planned diversity series will also address the need of American students to better understand international cultures as we look to enter the global business world. We want to make sure there is something for everyone.

We also need to help provide for academic and professional enhancement. During our discussions with the Dean's Advisory Council in April, I think we all agreed on the benefits of bringing more alumni into our classrooms as speakers. We will be seeking to help the administration and faculty develop those ideas in any way we can. Professional development stems directly from clubs, which through our facilitation are more closely coordinating their activities. 

Opportunities for fun and advancement seem endless this year. All of our plans can only be helped by your participation. If you would like to join us for one of our activities throughout the year, or if you have ideas for things we can do in your area, we would love to hear from you; please e-mail kgsa@purdue.edu.
