The Entrepreneur Association is the club to be in, and the 350 students can choose from 25 programs to be involved with, such as the Mentor Program or the Venture Development Program. You'll have discussions with groups like the Venture Capital Roundtable and be inspired by speakers like the founders of Southwest Airlines and Starbucks.
