Before the meeting ended, one of our members was working on a study on St. Onnie’s Day, an event where Oneonta students gather to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. In this survey, we asked students where they would like to go to celebrate. Two of the four recommendations were the Red Jug Pub and the Latte Lounge. The release of this study is still in progress. The purpose of this survey is to keep up with the community socially and find out which businesses are popular. Such connections help the club grow and pursue these business opportunities.
At this time, the club does not hold any campus events other than general assembly. With the Executive Committee votes underway, members are taking their time choosing their candidates. The Entrepreneurship Club looks forward to competing with groups in business competitions and exploring their knowledge base.
