The College of Business Administration's sixth annual Battle of the Registered Student Organizations, hosted by the Central Marketing Society, raised $1,500 for the Isabella County Restoration House.

The weeklong event — virtual for the first time — fosters networking and camaraderie among CBA students and faculty while showcasing talents, inspiring friendly competition and raising money for charitable causes. It featured four main events: trivia, an escape room, bingo and a scavenger hunt.

Members of Central Marketing Society put their skills to use through activities such as strategizing, planning, finding sponsors, fundraising, building relationships and promoting the event. Senior Delanie Braun, a marketing major, worked over 150 hours to coordinate the event as field experience for her event management minor.

Seven business student organizations competed alongside a faculty and staff team. This year's winner was coed professional business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi, which selected ICRH as this year's recipient.
