Testimonials from previous high school participants
"I am a senior in high school who participated in the University of Southern Indiana Business Case Study. I plan on majoring in accounting so I found this event to be very helpful and beneficial. I also found this event to be very fun. Between working closely with my teammates and meeting other high school students along with college students, this event has to be one of the best ones I have ever attended. The tour of the campus was beautiful and very helpful in picking a college, not mention the amazing prizes. I would highly recommend this event to any student in business or even remotely interested in business. I loved it!" -Jaycee Simpson
"The USI High School Case Study has been one of the most rewarding and best experiences I have been apart of in high school. My team’s mentors Chris and Jonathan were amazing, they came in and guided us from a simple start to our final project. Overall from the second we met with our mentors to the moment we accepted the award and drove home, this event is the most beneficial and rewarding high school business event around." -Alex Wheeler
