What Students Are Saying

How do freshmen know what to do, where to go, and how to get started in the Welch College of Business?

Why is Golf such a big part of the Welch Experience?

Whether the adage of "more business being done on the golf course than in the board room" is true or not, here’s what is true: knowing the game of golf will help you network with people at work, and that is important.

Imagine your boss says, "We have a foursome going out on Saturday. It’s me, our CEO, and our top client. Can you be the fourth?” Every student in the Welch College of Business will be prepared to say, "YES."
