Our aim is to raise funds for both the STHM International Scholarship and Joy Juice Inc. with the help of commercial brand sponsorship and fundraisers operated by our company this semester than any other Senior Seminar class has in the past. Both sections committees are tremendously dedicated and motivated in doing so. We plan to have a snack sales table every day of the week in at least two buildings around campus. Our vision is to position ourselves in the areas that have the most foot traffic per day, and to capitalize on the hungry students. Both sections will be conducting multiple fundraising efforts throughout the semester that are different and unique. We want to do things that previous Senior Seminar classes haven’t done before.
