‘Back to Business’ Event

‘Back to Business’ Event Emphasizes Student Involvement, Local Partnerships

MISSOULA – A new event at the University of Montana School of Business Administration highlights the importance of student involvement and partnerships with local businesses. The “Back to Business Barbecue” will bring together business students, faculty and staff for free food, live music and networking in the courtyard of Gallagher Business Building.

The barbecue will take place at noon Thursday, Sept. 7, in the Gallagher courtyard. UM employees and students – business majors, as well as business minors and students considering pursuing a business degree – are invited to attend.

“This event is part of our effort to make opportunities for students to engage with each other, as well as faculty and staff – to help students feel really connected to the supportive community we’ve built here,” said business school Dean Christopher Shook.

The event is sponsored by ROAM Student Living, the new housing community on Front Street in downtown Missoula set to begin occupancy in spring 2018. UM business school alumnus Jim McLeod is co-founder of Farran Realty Partners, a lead developer of ROAM.

The school’s new stock ticker, provided by financial services company D.A. Davidson, also will be unveiled at the barbecue. The electronic sign streams stock updates and customized messages into the Gallagher Business Building lobby. Frank D’Angelo, a senior vice president, financial adviser and branch manager with D.A. Davidson, is a UM School of Business alumnus and will speak at the event.

“Partnerships with local businesses, especially ones like these with representation from our alumni, benefit everyone, especially our students,” Shook said. “We are so grateful to these companies for their support.”
