For three weeks in October, a fellow BBA and I researched and debated the ethical, legal and philosophical implications of a hospital’s decision not to provide rehabilitation services to an undocumented stroke victim. A short essay supplemented a 20-minute presentation giving our analysis and recommendation to the hospital’s board for this year's Eller Ethics Competition at the University of Arizona. The weekend embodied a lot of what college should be to me. I took skills I learned in cozy classrooms and tested them in cold reality. We applied classroom lessons to a high pressure, realistic environment. We won the essay competition; overall, the competition weekend was fun, stimulating and rewarding. Though I only have a semester left, I have promised myself to take advantage of as many opportunities that Goizueta offers as time permits.
In the following stories, read about how other BBA students have engaged themselves in our community, learning, growing, and improving everyone’s experience.
