The Business and Economics Club at Edinboro University gathers twice a month to talk about how to better their club members for the future.

Currently with 20 members, the Business and Economics Club attends career fairs, listens to guest speakers and looks to learn useful career tips. Additionally, the club has non-academic events such as bowling.

According to the club’s BoroSync page, “The purpose of the Edinboro University Business and Economics Club shall be to improve the university and local/regional communities through community service projects as well as to enhance the educational and social experience of its members.”

Club president, Samantha Bertolino, has been a member of the club since 2015. “People should join Business and Economics Club because it is a relaxed environment, affordable, fun and helps you gain useful experience for the future,” she said.

“I have gotten great leadership skills from being the president, as well as great communication and networking skills from being so actively involved within the club.”

Active members must attend at least half of the regular meetings that are held by the club. Additionally, club members “shall pledge to participate in one community service event” each semester, according to the club’s BoroSync page.

Students are able to join the club now, but each person must pay a $10 due very shortly after joining.

The club meets every other Wednesday in Hendricks 223 at noon. The next meeting is March 30.
