Recently, the LA Times posted an article describing shareholders’ emotional investment in Apple. The piece is in response to Apple’s recent 12% stock value decline. The expert the Times turned to for insight on the case? The GSM’s own Dr. Brad Barber.

Challenge for Charity, a GSM philanthropic club, organized a volunteering day at a Special Olympics bowling tournament this weekend. A few of us went to help out for the day! It was a fantastic (and fun!) experience. I loved cheering on the players!

As part of our MBA curriculum here at the GSM, it is required that each student complete an internship during the summer between their first and second year. Of course, even if it weren’t a requirement, we would all still want a summer internship.
Friday, October 19th marked the occasion for a student-thrown GSM Pig Roast. Second-year students Brian Kroopf, Nate Chan, and Spencer Wilton were generous enough to donate their entire Friday to procure and roast a delicious pig. The spit cooking method took upwards of 15 hours but the end result was fantastic! This was an entirely local affair, as UC Davis GSM students roasted a pig purchased from the UC Davis Animal Sciences meat lab. The pig roast brought first and second-year classmates together and provided a fun and relaxing environment following a tough week of exams and coursework.
This past Tuesday, a handful of students got to hang out with the Dean! The WiL (Women in Leadership) Club hosted the event; providing us with yummy soda and mixers to make our own mocktails. There were even maraschino cherries to plop into our fancy drinks, and cookies to munch on!
