ACU’s chapter of Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, or CEO, was recognized as one of the top chapters at the organization’s national conference this past weekend. ACU’s CEO Club is sponsored by the Griggs Center for Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy. The club’s focus is to inspire, connect, and support students to think like entrepreneurs and network with like-minded students. The student club has over 200 active members and has had approximately 10% of all ACU undergraduate students participate in at least one of its meetings or workshops this fall.
ACU’s chapter was selected as one of three finalists from over 200 schools earlier in October along with chapters from Texas A&M University and the eventual winner, Bryant University.
Rudy Garza, junior Marketing major and President of ACU CEO, represented the club in the final round of the competition. “Representing ACU at the CEO National Conference was an honor. Meeting fellow chapters reminded me that the effort to spread the entrepreneurial spirit on our campus is an effort shared by so many incredible young people at schools across the country. They were sharp, confident, and energetic – and I’m proud to say that ACU was among the best of them.”
“The student leaders have done an amazing job. The success of the group is a testament to their hard work and the entrepreneurial spirit of ACU’s student body. ACU CEO provides a great experience and learning opportunity for all ACU students,” said Dr. Jim Litton, Director of the Griggs Center and faculty sponsor of ACU CEO.
