  NATIONALLY RANKED STUDENT EXPERIENCES

Student-Run Businesses

4x Global Chapter of the Year

Students + Social Entrepreneurship

In addition to gaining what is needed to build a career, I’ve seen new parts of the world, made new friends, and had fun.

– RUDY GARZA (’16), Former President of CEO

Through the Griggs Center, I learned more about entrepreneurship – the passion, the people, the energy, the creativity – and learned that I wanted to be a part of it. I was given the opportunity to lead a team and have ownership over something. I was challenged often to think creatively and inventively while learning the right questions to ask, how to ask them and when to ask them. I learned how to empower myself and others to achieve success.

Hannah Ostertag, ‘13, Consultant at Accenture

I had the opportunity to work with an incredible team of people who inspired me and pushed me to achieve my full potential. Working with Wildcat Ventures and the Griggs Center is truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity because students learn real-world lessons that cannot be taught in the classroom while also building relationships with fellow Christians that will last a lifetime.
