                 responses to the following question:
   Knowing what you now know about the
   society, what would you say to potential
    members to encourage them to join?
                     (main theme responses are shared below)

It’s a wonderful organization! Everyone is VERY friendly and willing to help
           you in any way possible! It truly is a great experience!

                      It’s a good platform to network.

  I would encourage them to talk to their business professors about the
                 honor and benefits associated with BGS.

                            Discounts on books!
            Over 50% of the survey respondents provided
                responses to the following question:
  Knowing what you now know about the
  society, what would you say to potential
   members to encourage them to join?
                    (main theme responses are shared below)

BGS is more than a resume builder. It opens doors in terms of networking
 and provides other benefits to its members during and after their college
                                experience.

         It is the highest honor a business student can receive.

     It really does have good benefits for you now and in the future.

It isn’t often a student’s hard work is recognized, and with BGS, you are
       honored for what you have accomplished – take advantage of it.
             Over 50% of the survey respondents provided
                 responses to the following question:
  Knowing what you now know about the
  society, what would you say to potential
   members to encourage them to join?
                    (main theme responses are shared below)

Only a few get this chance, and if you are one of those few, it gives you an
        edge. In today’s world, we need all the “edge” we can find!

    Being a member is worth the cost of the lifetime membership fee.

    You can never have too many leadership and honor positions.

  There are more benefits than you realize. Take the time to research the
  society and find its benefits, don’t think that it’s “just another honor
                 society” and it won’t impact your resume.
So, we both have work to do!
