FTCBC is Back in Business
By Hailey Neumann
The Five Towns College Business Club is up and running, finishing its first meeting of the spring semester on Thursday, February 24th. Run by President Leah Chambers and VP Jan Filip Jagielski, the club kicked off its gathering with ice breakers and donuts while students talked with new members.
The meeting lasted 30-40 minutes and was full of great ideas for upcoming meetings. Some topics that came up were how to get started in cryptocurrency and how to invest properly.
When asked about what students can expect when joining this club, Chambers said students will be “learning how to network with one another, with anybody who is in a different major: film, theater, mass comm, or audio… because we can all work together with business.” She went on to talk about how the main purpose of this club is to teach everyone how to make money and keep that money growing.
Chambers’ focus is on the music business, so she plans to bring in off-campus guests to meet students and share their experiences in the real world. She also added that “not everyone knows how to make money, and that is where Jan comes in. He tells us about how to finance.”
Jan Jagielski decided to apply for a position to help lead this club after seeing the opportunity posted. His goal is to teach students how to grow as people and make better financial choices.
Jagielski described the club’s goals. “The goals of this club are to build a supportive community for people wanting to prosper in business, provide resources and opportunities for everyone involved, and organize valuable activities and events to make business interesting.”
One activity the club has started to host is the Monopoly League. Players will meet every Saturday from 7-9 pm in the Downbeat and test their skills and luck in real estate. At the end of the monthly tournament, the winner will get a special surprise.
The FTC Business Club meets every Thursday during Common Hour in room 101. All you need to bring is your curiosity for the future. Contact Leah Chambers and Jan Filip Jagielski for further details.
