S3 Club

The S3 Club is open to all majors. Freshmen and sophomores interested in pursuing a bright future in sports & entertainment as an S3 major are particularly encouraged to join.

At the root of a bright future is living with integrity, guided by compassion, honesty and optimism. In fact, according to a study by Bentley University, the top quality sought by employers in hiring millennials is integrity. But, what is integrity?

Integrity is not something you have or don't have. Integrity is part of our development into people who "have the courage to meet the demands of reality." Integrity consists of six essential qualities that determine success.

Following the kick-off general interest meeting each semester, keynote speakers address each of the six essential qualities that lead to success in life and career. Meeting format:

 
5:30 S3 Senior dinner with speaker
6:30 Speaker
7:00 Roundtable discussion
7:20 Q&A with speaker
7:40 Conclude
