Black Hills State Univeristy Students in Marketing

Get Involved in Student Organizations

Being involved in student organizations increases your relationships with university administration, faculty and staff, and peers. It also improves your employability, leadership skills, and teamwork ability. At BHSU, you have several excellent business related student organizations to select from. Those include:

  • Buzz Marketing
    Increases the awareness of marketing on campus by providing students with correct ways to network, complete a resume, and use marketing tactics to in turn receive the experience of being involved in a nationally recognized organization.
  • Buzz Marketing is an on-campus organization of students studying a wide range of majors ranging beyond marketing and management. The mission of Buzz Marketing is to provide members with an opportunity for professional growth and knowledge through the establishment of projects focused on the marketing needs of local for profit and not for profit organizations. Previous projects include the 2010 Student Summit Marketing Competition, American Advertising Federation Conference, published press releases and advertising for the SCA’s BAM Festival, Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, Black Hills Wrestling Federation and other University based organizations.

  • Jacket Investment Club
    The JIC was founded to enhance student learning and engagement in the financial market and provide information for students who are interested in stock market investment. In particular, the club is formed as a legal partnership entity to give students a vehicle to invest their own money and learn how to analyze securities. Faculty Advisor: Mr. Don Looney  or Dr. Pat Mackin     
  • Travel and Tourism Club
    Gathers students who are interested in pursuing a career in the travel and hospitality industries, and enhances their education through practical experience. Faculty Advisor: Dr. Kwangsoo Park                                                     

  • Society of Human Resources Management
    With over 340 student chapters located at colleges and universities throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, SHRM is a professional student organization consisting of students majoring in Human Resources and other fields who are interested in exploring Human Resources as a profession after graduation. Networking opportunities with local professionals, certification study groups, field trips to local employers and other activities are planned to provide student members with an orientation to career opportunities in HR. As local and national members, students learn about the "real world" of human resource management through award-winning publications and educational opportunities. Students build their knowledge of the human relations field, develop valuable leadership and organizational skills, and form contacts today that can help find jobs tomorrow.
