On Tuesday night, students and staff from the Evening and Full-time UST MBA programs braved the chilly autumn winds to watch the Minnesota Twins defeat the Kansas City Royals at Target Field. The highlight may have been Jim Thome's 452-foot home run to deep right field, but there were many other exciting events for our group.
Evening MBA program advisor Margaret McKibbin and her family were chosen to appear on the Jumbotron, and they successfully answered one of the quiz questions about Twins pitcher Matt Guerrier as 35,000 fans (over 200 of them from UST) watched. For their efforts, they received a pass to the Delta Sky 360 Legends Club for the duration of the game.
A couple of innings later, second-year Full-time UST MBA student Jose Quijada grabbed a Twins t-shirt shot out of an air gun by Twins mascot TC Bear. Around the same time, we all cheered as the scoreboard welcomed UST to the game, as you can see in the photo above.
The Twins game was a great opportunity for our current and incoming MBA students to build their social and professional networks as the new academic year gets underway. Thanks to all of the staff and students who were able to join us!
