 AU Business Students Selected to Attend National Summit in NYC


Anderson University is pleased to announce that two members of the AU Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team were selected to attend the 2012 SIFE National Partner Summit in New York City.

Senior accounting and financial economics student Danielle Atkinson and junior marketing student Chase Heatherly were selected as two of only 30 SIFE students nationwide to attend the Partner Summit, held February 7-8. Over 80 student leaders from SIFE chapters across the country applied to participate.

The Partner Summit, held at the Time Life Building in New York, provided these 30 SIFE students with the opportunity to connect with one another as well as top executives from SIFE partner companies. The companies present included Campbell's Soup Company, Wal-Mart, Unilever, Sam's Club, KPMG, First Quality, and many more.

Additionally, the Summit served as a time for these SIFE team leaders to hear about the future plans of the global organization. Sessions included a panel of international SIFE representatives, a presentation by the 2012 South Africa National Champion SIFE Team, and an open forum on the marketing of SIFE through means of social media.

Atkinson, in her third year of SIFE, serves as the president of the AU Team. Heatherly's roles include both secretary/treasurer and project manager for the team's first-ever international project in Honduras.  

Anderson University congratulates these students for being selected to attend the 2012 SIFE National Partner Summit.
