Appendices…………………………………………………………………………...17 Introduction In our first celebration of American Enterprise Day at Florida International University (FIU), our chapter wanted to surpass all expectations, and have a clear goal. With more than 35, 000 students encompassing the FIU community, our main purpose was to educate the students and the public about the importance of the American Enterprise System, while focusing on entrepreneurship. It was essential for our chapter to portray former United States President Jimmy Carter’s message, that as Americans we have the right to pursue any career path we desire, and our privilege to entrepreneurship and free enterprise. The FIU Phi Beta Lambda chapter realized that there was a need for more information on entrepreneurship opportunities, and the lack of knowledge on the subject within the community and student body. Our speakers were prominent business owners, who focused their presentation on their individual successes, and provided guidance to those in attendance of the event. The entire chapter participated in the planning and execution of this project, as well as the FIU Student Organization Council (SOC), advisor, and other business organizations on campus. The community also provided support and resources towards the success of the American Enterprise Project, held on Monday, November 19 th , 2007.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
