College of Business Online Chat

March 29, 2010, Amanda Weaver


In an effort to help admitted students prepare for the next school year, the SIU College of Business, along with Undergraduate Admissions, have begun hosting online chat sessions to answer questions and get to know future Salukis before they come to campus in the fall.

The purpose of these events is to connect with the future Saluki’s to discuss all aspects of the College of Business, including academic majors, living on campus, academic advisement, getting involved as a student, and various student services the College of Business has to offer.

The College of Business held their first chat session on Monday, March 1, and communicated with several newly admitted students. The College’s chat team included members of the faculty, staff, and current students, as well as a campus admissions representative.

Director of Enrollment Management, Jill Gebke ‘s commented, “It (the chat session) was a nice event, we are looking to expand the number of students that participate, but overall, the students that participated had great questions, and received many good answers from various points across the College of Business.”

The next online chat session will be on April 1st from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  If you would like to participate in the next session, or have additional questions, please contact Jill Gebke, Director of Enrollment Management by phone at (618) 453-7487 or by e-mail at
