RISE 13

On the RISE

UD’s annual RISE Forum is about more than CEOs discussing the stock market and economic recovery on stage in UD Arena. It’s about the students who got them there.

The 60-plus students in the Davis Center for Portfolio Management started planning for RISE 13 half a year before the three-day event, April 4-6.  Sam Girouard ’14, a finance and marketing major, started making calls to schools, sponsors and panelists to pitch RISE back in November. He helped with the physical set up in the arena, hotels and on campus beginning two days before attendees arrived, and will reverse the process upon RISE’s conclusion.

“My favorite part of RISE is the team aspect of putting it all together and seeing it in motion,” said Girouard on the first day of RISE 13. “We were all so excited this morning.”

When Giorouard isn’t behind the scenes helping the event run smoothly, he’s enjoying the panels; he appreciates the opportunity to get out of the classroom and into applied finances, learning from people who work in the industry and see the market change every day. “Classes are great, you learn a lot, but getting their [panelists’] experience passed down to you is priceless.”

RISE 13 panelists included professionals from BlackRock, Barclays, Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. and many more. “Hearing something a Federal Bank president has to say is not something you ever get to hear — and we had two,” said Girouard. “Hearing from top financial minds is a treat.”
