Ten Westminster College students recently attended a Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) competition.
The team reported on their accomplishments of the past school year, which included: holding a credit card seminar for first-year students; creating a 'Truth or Myth' financial concepts video and presentation; working with the local Ronald McDonald Children's Charities organization; teaching price and value concepts to children at the annual Mardi Gras festival; producing and recording an anti-piracy video that was submitted for competitive judging by the Motion Picture Association of America; and helping high school students to understand the ethical side of business decisions.
"Overall the team had a very successful year, made good friends, and enjoyed their opportunities to help their community," said David Smith, assistant professor of accounting at Westminster and adviser to SIFE. "At the same time, they were able to earn one credit for their transcripts and build a place on their resumes for that extra difference-making experience that is so valuable to potential employers as they leave school."
SIFE is a club designed to provide students an opportunity to develop leadership, teamwork, and communication skills through learning and practicing principles of free enterprise. Market economics, business operation, and the attitudes and ethics required for success in the global market are topics of exploration. Membership is open to all students of all majors.
