Hello, Edwards Students!
My name is Mitch Bellefleur, and I am very excited to be the 2019/2020 Edwards Business Students' Society (EBSS) President.
The primary goal of the EBSS is to enhance your university experience through various programs, initiatives, and events. Throughout the year we strive to offer students various academic initiatives, such as our Internal Case Competition, charity volunteer opportunities such as Habitat for Humanity group builds, and social activities like LB5Q! There are also events such as the Edwards Business Formal which allow students to connect and network with many different employers and business professionals. Every year the EBSS works to improve and provide students with the best possible opportunities, and this year will be no different. With a passionate executive team and an enthusiastic general council, we hope to offer students an excellent 2019/2020 experience!
I came to Edwards from my small hometown of Weyburn, Saskatchewan. High school accounting and entrepreneurship classes sparked my interest for business, and made me decide that commerce was the path for me. I started my EBSS career as a Corporate Relations Coordinator and was the VP Finance last year. My free time generally consists of me hanging out with friends, jamming to some Broadway tunes, or consuming any media that has to do with superheroes (as I write this, I'm still reeling from Avengers: Endgame). All of this, of course, is done while procrastinating on homework. One piece of advice I would give to any new or returning Edwards student is to get involved if you want to enhance your time in university. There are so many fantastic opportunities around campus, so check them out and attend the events that interest you! By doing so, you will create friendships and experiences that are just as important as any learning you will do in a classroom during your time here. The EBSS exists to create value for all of the Edwards students, but you must also take initiative and seize these opportunities! If you have any questions, please feel free to
reach out to me or any other EBSS member, as we are always happy to meet new people and help out wherever we can. I am looking forward to a great year and wish you all the best!
Hey Edwards! I am super excited to be chairperson for the EBSS this year! I am a fourth-year finance student (or as I prefer to call it, FUN-ance) and I am also on the entrepreneurship team for JDC West. I have been on the EBSS for the past three years. I spent two years on the marketing portfolio and one year as a finance associate. This year I am super excited to play a more supporting role on council and help Mitch with all his presidential tasks, as well as anyone else in our great big family who needs help with whatever they are working on. If you ever need your tires pumped or a shoulder to cry on feel free to reach out to me and I will be there in a flash!
Hello, ESB! Chris here, former “pre-nursing” student turned business student, and I am the new EBSS Executive Assistant for the 2019/2020 school year. Meaning, I am the one in charge of answering your inquiries sent through the EBSS email and among other things. A few things about me is that I am a third year HR major, I "cure" my stress from school by spending the money that I do not have on H&M and Forever21, I am a major Blackpink fan (Rosé is my bias), and you might see me walking around Edwards with a dreadful RBF; however, please do not avoid me because I am actually very social and harmless in person. I promise, I am a very chill person to talk to, especially when I have had ten hours of sleep and a venti iced black tea lemonade from Starbucks *smiley emoji.* That being said, feel free to send us an email with your questions and I will do my very best to give you a proper and correct answer in a timely manner. P.S. Keep it classy!
