In 2016, the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship chartered a chapter in the Society for Advancement of Management. SAM is over 100 years old and features three distinct components for students to compete in. Three students will be nominated for the Regional Student Award, which recognizes students for their contribution to the club and their involvement in community service. The chapter will also compete for the Chapter of the Year which is based on the overall operations of the chapter and community service. This year, our students have participated in feeding handicapped individuals at Gibb Mabry Village, worked at the FSU 7 under 30 presentation, sponsored two individuals from Boys Town for Christmas, and assisted with the Harley Davidson Toys for Tots Drive.
