Students in BMGT 2501 held two very exciting events as part of their course requirement. The first event was a community dinner on the night of November 9, organized by section AC. Jazz It Up Stillman was a “by students, for students” event organized and attended by students and faculty within the Stillman School of Business. It was an evening of great jazz performed by our very own Seton Hall Student Jazz Ensemble, incredible Italian food provided by Village Trattoria, and delicious desserts supplied by Cait & Abby’s Bakery. All in attendance could agree that the student organizers did a fantastic job overall. The hosting, setup, marketing, food, entertainment, and safety of the event all went off without a hitch and made for a seamless and enjoyable event. The skillfully performed music provided a soothing backdrop for a night full of great laughter, conversation, and networking.
The local eats, very local music, and incredibly dedicated students all went towards making the event feel intimate yet connected with the greater community of South Orange and the New York Metropolitan Area. That network is ever expanding, its growth sustained by new partnerships such as Burgers Grilled Right (BGR). BGR is a growing fast-casual burger franchise opening up soon just minutes from Seton Hall at 9 West South Orange Ave. Being owned and operated by Stillman School Alumnus, Paul Sannitti, BGR is set to become a popular destination for all people in our local community as well as another terrific partnership for Seton Hall and the Stillman School. Stillman has always boasted an expanding, yet tight-knit network for its students, faculty, and business partnerships.
The second event was Pirate Tailgate, held at the Walsh Gallery Walkway before the women’s basketball season opener in Walsh Gym. It was organized by section AD. The event featured games, prizes, music, and food. Jazz It Up Stillman and Pirate Tailgate vividly illustrated the strong and distinct sense of community shared amongst members.
