Students Forge New Connections at National Enactus Exposition

Four students are just back from attending the Enactus US National Exposition in Cincinnati, where they presented service projects and networked with business sponsors, faculty and students from 220 other colleges and universities.

Enactus (formerly known as SIFE) is "an international non-profit organization that brings together student, academic and business leaders who are committed to using the power of entrepreneurial action to improve the quality of life and standard of living for people in need."

The BW team that attended the national gathering included Ethan Zoellner '14, Mara Kampe '14, Will Otto '15 and Tessa Louché '17, plus faculty adviser Phil Bessler from the Business Division. The BW Enactus members work with two different Northeast Ohio transitional housing organizations for the homeless, mentoring residents on resume writing, interviewing, computer literacy, life skills and more.
