Carlson School Day at the Races

More than 1,800 alumni and friends joined us at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn. for the 14th annual Carlson School Day at the Races August 19. Guests enjoyed a picnic dinner, prize drawings, the races, and a chance to connect and reconnect with other Carlson School alumni and friends. The event was hosted by Curt Sampson, ’55 BSB.

Beijing Reception

An alumni and student reception took place in Beijing, China in May. At this event were two Carlson School student groups, a group from the University of Minnesota Learning Abroad Center, and several alumni and incoming Carlson School students from China. Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) Coordinator Jennie Meinz (right) was the travel coordinator for the Beijing trip. She is with incoming MBA student Karen Zhufei. This event was co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota Beijing Office/GPS Alliance and the Carlson School Alumni Relations office and the Carlson Global Institute.
