Coming out of the closet
11:11:25 AM CDT - Thursday, February 27, 2003
So what kinds of wild and wacky ties and scarves do WSU administrators have hiding in their closets? You can find out when they go on display in the Rhatigan Student Center the first week of March.
Organizers of the Barton School of Business' Business Week asked WSU's top officials and other administrators to donate ties, scarves or other accessories that seemed like a good idea a the time, but are just too wacky, wild or plain ugly to wear now as part of the week's theme, which is "Suited for Success." The owners of the accessories will be identified with name cards. The idea is to show even senior administrators have a few castoffs that might not be "suited for success," according to organizers.
The items will be displayed in the RSC case located by the University Bookstore and the Information Center.
More than 20 sessions on such topics as professional presence, financial habits, and job-hunting skills are being held during Business Week March 3-7 for WSU students. The keynote lecture by business executive and WSU alumnus T. Michael Young at 7:15 p.m. March 5 in 208 Hubbard Hall will be open to the public. He'll talk about post-Enron ethics and accountability.
