Week 10 – TSG Bulletin

Dear T-birds,

Have you heard of something called the “Thunderbird Mystique?” I was so moved by the school’s YouTube videos (such as this: http://youtu.be/NrrQCWWV-00).

And you will too, especially tomorrow night as we celebrate Diwali and Saturday, when over a hundred of us will volunteer for Thundercares and, later, celebrate the Europe, Africa, Middle East regional night!

Security

During our TSG Board meeting (Friday, LH53 @1), Randy Wallace (Head of T-bird Security) and Sean Murphy (Honor Council) will address some security concerns and relay best practices for T-birds to use on campus and in everyday life.

  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times
  • Lock your doors and windows when not at home
  • Know your neighbor because you have to watch out for each other (off campus residences primarily)
  • Report suspicious people or vehicles to security or the Police if off campus
  • On vehicles, we document license plates to give to the Police if needed
  • Lock your vehicles always
  • Do not leave personal items in your car in plain view
  • When getting in your vehicle lock the doors first and then start the car
  • People get comfortable within a mile of their residence because it is their comfort zone
  • You need to be alert until in the residence and secured
  • Remember bad guys are opportunists and they try to blend into places with a lot of people
  • STAY ALERT!!!!!

GBSN MBA Challenge

Can an MBA change the world? The annual Global Business School Network video contest isn’t for several months, but students can start planning now on their submission. The contest allows MBA students to show how they’re applying their business school education to make a difference in the developing world.

In 2011, a group of Tbirds had won first place and were able to attend the GBSN conference in Mexico City! Here is a link to see this past year’s videos: http://www.gbsnonline.org/?page=videos_mbachallenge
