Connecting With the Community

Business Badgers are embracing unique opportunities to make an impact in the world. In the past year, they have taken part in the Polar Plunge—jumping into freezing cold water after raising close to $9,000 for Special Olympics—as well as volunteered for the River Food Pantry, given their time to Habitat for Humanity, and traveled to Mexico City to volunteer at an orphanage. Giving back to the community is an important part of being a Business Badger and these students do well to champion that special kind of connection.
