Wild About Business

Students and faculty from the College of Business










The Wild About Business themed community is a unique opportunity for first-year Business Administration majors to live together and take classes with one another. The goal of the program is to connect students within the Business major with each other as well as with staff and faculty in the College of Business to better foster a sense of belonging at CSU Chico. Residents will have access to the knowledge and skills needed for successful performance in business environments and will enhance their learning through participation in department programs and activities.
