A Message from the Editor

When I get a chance, I love to #ShopSmall.  It supports the local economy and puts money back right back here in the USA.  As business majors, we all know the importance of that!  This holiday season I encourage you to shop local.  Sometimes we struggle trying to find the perfect gift for that special someone.  I've noticed over the years that it can be easier to shop at small boutiques, because they have really unique gifts for the person that has everything.

This holiday season you can support Walsh alums that have opened a business using Blackstone LaunchPad.  I also listed a few of my personal favorite shops both locally and nationally.  Read More

Sincerely,

Jessica Knapik, MSM '04

Cell Phone Collection Drive sponsored by Veteran Services

Now - Friday, December 12
Troy Records Office & Novi/UC Administrative Office

Veteran Services is hosting a cell phone collection drive benefiting Cell Phones for Soldiers. The organization recycles old cell phones to purchase international calling cards for active duty military. The cards are given to service members deployed overseas to connect with family and friends back home. Each $5 contribution or donated device valued at $5, provides them with 2.5 hours of free talk time.

Newer or gently used phones from all service providers are accepted. Note: Please deactivate the phone, turn off the power, and keep the battery attached. If there is no battery, place tape over the terminal ends. If you don’t have an old cell phone to donate, the organization also accepts monetary donations. Please visit their web site to make a contribution online.
