The gathering of bright high school students was put together by Saint Francis University's chapter of Students In Free Enterprise. Officers of that organization were out to spread the word to high school students that studying business can make a lot of sense.
Many of the high school students taking part in the day long event seemed to be catching an entrepreneurial spirit. The day was filled with advice on topics like dressing for business success and preparing resumes. Students were also able to demonstrate the lessons they have already absorbed.
The Dean of the University 's School of Business said the out reach to high school students works for both the University and the students who take part.
University officials say the annual business day for high school students continues to grow and attract more participating schools and students each year. This year more than 200 high school students from nine different high schools took part in the annual business day on the campus of Saint Francis University.
