Three fourth year Lang business students are eagerly awaiting the opening of the inaugural Guelph Food Festival, an event organized through their start-up company 219 Media. The event takes place this Saturday, September 14th at York Road Park in Guelph.
The idea for a food festival came from their love for food and a discussion in their first-year dorm room three years ago. When it came to the logistics behind launching an event of this size, they relied on both their learnings in class and the support from Lang’s Applied Business Project course (BUS*4550 and BUS*4560).
Last week, the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics hosted its inaugural Teaching and Learning Seminar, part of a new ongoing series of seminars that will focus on sharing new ideas around innovative teaching and learning practices.
The seminars are an extension of Lang’s commitment to active learning to foster supportive and challenging learning environments for Lang students.
The Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics welcomes five adjunct faculty who are joining Lang’s School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management in support of the International Institute for Sport Business and Leadership (IISBL).
