Eagle Business Students Visit Riot Games

By Aron Gideon, Eagle Business Program Director . Each year, students of the Eagle Business program participate in the PromeNade where they write and implement business plans for start-up companies.

35 Eagle Business students visited Riot Games, founded by alumnus Marc Merrill and accompanied by alumnus Greg Stefflre, both Chaminade graduates of 1998. The goals of the field trip were:

1) To see how successful an alumnus of Chaminade can be. 2) To learn the importance of all departments to the success of a large company (not just the ones that get the attention, like game design). 3) To see a global company in action that succeeds financially while using a flat, fun, and flexible approach to growth. 4) To hear how Riot Games cultivates human resources through extensive recruitment, training, and cultural development practices.

Eagle Business Program Partners With LA Times

Soon Eagle athletic fans will be able to read about their team on the Los Angeles Times website via Varsity Video. The site will showcase original content, provided by Chaminade College Preparatory’s Eagle Business students. Chaminade was one of 15 schools in Southern California to receive the exclusive invitation to join Varsity Video.

Last week, students Jen Harlow ’15, Conner Hoyt ’15, and Alec Neimand ’16  visited the LA Times office building in downtown Los Angeles to discuss this opportunity. The evening began with dinner and talks by The Times’ CEO, Austin Beutner and Deputy Sports Editor, John Cherwa. Times sports columnists, including Sam Farmer and Eric Sondheimer, met with the students and their teacher Aron Gideon to discuss ideas for creating content that represent unique perspectives of Chaminade athletics. After discussions and training for interfacing with the website were completed, Eagle Business went on a private tour of newspaper’s three floors.

The students have already begun to build their page. Find the Chaminade tab at Varsity Video at in the coming weeks.
