Mark Pruett
Day/Time Taught: 
MW 5:00-6:15 pm
Course Number: 

No matter what college major you’re considering, have you ever imagined starting or running your own business or non-profit organization? The Power of E is an introduction to entrepreneurship and will help students in practically any major or area of study. We will look at the basics of how to come up with ideas and how to bring them to life. You’ll make close friends, experience exciting out-of-the-classroom activities, and develop a more independent,
creative way of thinking.   We’ll read several interesting books, including “Student Entrepreneurs” and “If Not Now, When?”.  Like all freshman seminars, there’ll be research and writing—in this class we’ll use projects to explore how your own personal interests
could create a new career!

NOTE: Priority enrollment for this class is given to those students living in the Entrepreneurship residential learning community.
