Editor’s Note: In the project management class (OMIS 352), students were challenged to create a project that makes a meaningful impact in the community. Here’s the third in a four part guest post series on why a team of 4 OMIS students feel so strongly about their project, the Dreamworks Scholarship campaign.
My name is Mason Bush and I am a senior at the NIU College of Business. I’m in the first generation of my family to graduate college.
I wanted to do this project because I have personally benefited from these scholarships and would have had a very hard time paying for school without this help. The NIU College of Business is a great place to be and a great opportunity to get ahead in life. The school is relatively affordable, especially considering how good it is and the opportunities available here, but many students still can’t afford to be here. The main reason I want to establish this scholarship is that I want other people to have the ability to get here who may not be able to otherwise. A lot of people need this kind of help. I know I certainly did.
Check out the Dreamworks web page here and if you feel strongly about this too, please help spread the word or donate or both!:
