"Some people make things happen, some watch things happen, while others wonder what has happened." - Gaelic proverb

With stress of balancing personal life, work life, and school work, we appreciate the hard work and dedication all of our members provide to this organization. We want to take the time and thank you for all your hard work!

Good luck with midterm week and we, the officer team, can't wait to see you all in our upcoming Professional Meeting this Thursday!

Next Professional Meeting....

5-7 PM

“If you are bold and eschew the mundane, you can become leaders. So far as I know, we only come this way one time. Give yourself a chance. Meet the challenges. Enjoy the excitement that comes with accomplishment. Pay the price. Allow yourself to dream. Give your dreams a chance to come true. And when you are firm in your convictions, don’t let others tell you it can’t be done.”
-- Charles T. “Ted” Bauer

We here at Bauer pride ourselves with enabling students to be the best they can be, whether that be academic, personal development or even take the first steps as leaders. Bauer Women Society is proud to host the directors of the Ted Bauer Leadership Program, Kathryn Wheatley, Tommy Doss and Jonathan Shirley at our second professional meeting of the semester

Dinner (menu will be Halal) will be served from 5-5:30 PM so please plan accordingly. Business professional attire is required.

Can't wait to see you all there!

Past Events

Our First Professional Meeting

For all those who couldn't make our first professional meeting here's a recap of the day!

Our first guest speaker was Bauer MBA Graduate, Glynn Roberts, President of Northstar Interest. His story of how he came from not having much to becoming president of his own company definitely brought in the "you-can-achieve-anything" vibe to all those in attendance.

Our second guest speakers was professor Jamie Belinne, who spoke about the power and influence women have in the business and social world. She shared her key tips to how YOU can gain success.

A Taste of Greece Cooking Night

A Taste of Greece Cooking Night was our first cooking night in the history of Bauer Women Society! We want to thank you for the time you invested coming out and learning how to cook with us all.

We made everything you saw before you during A Taste of Greece Bake Sale and the things we heard the students say about our food is something you should all be proud of! We really enjoyed hanging out and cooking with everyone and hope to see this same dedication again for our next bake sale!

A Taste of Greece Bake Sale

Our first bake sale was a great success, with the UC being closed and food trucks being overpriced, a Bauer student definitely enjoys a bake sale. They enjoyed this one even more because it was a Bauer Women Bake Sale! Melcher Hall echoed with great feedback students had to say! Let's continue the great work come around our next bake sale, March 26th!
