The Olivet Business School, OBS, is currently organizing a back to school tour event of Wall Street and its surrounding area in the financial district of New York City. OBS Dean Jacob Chatterjee is serving as the main organizer for the event.
"The tour's primary objective is to immerse the OBS new and prospective students in some of Wall Street's most iconic landmarks," said Chatterjee.
"We hope the students will understand why they chose OBS in NYC as their destination of choice to study business instead of anywhere else in the world. "Our international students will need a sense of perspective and belonging to one day achieve their dreams and that of their respective communities," added the OBS Dean.
The tour serves as the beginning of a series of events for the upcoming academic year to engage students to potential and possibilities found in New York City. The experience would hopefully allow students to embrace their degrees and offer a balanced outlook inside of the world's biggest business center.
An initial agenda of the Wall Street tour includes visiting many historic sites on the street itself such as the previous location of the bank of New York at 1 Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange at the corner of Wall Street and Broad Street, the Federal Hall National Memorial corner of Wall Street and Broad Street, 40 Wall Street (The Trump Building).
Also, many Financial District museums visits have been planned during that day, notably South Street Seaport Museum, the Fraunces Tavern Museum as well as the 9/11 memorial.
The event will be attended by Olivet's business students and is an open invitation to all Olivet University Students who wish to join. It will be held at the beginning of September.
