MBA students in the business of giving back

Nick Skantz stood on the weather-beaten grey steps of the Grove Christian Outreach Center located on Route 60. After four years as an undergrad, he thought he knew the Williamsburg area, at least the hot spots for students and the restaurants. But he had never been in an environment like this before.

“I never knew about this place, but I’m impressed with how much they do with the community,” Skantz said on a warm Wednesday morning. He was one of 112 students from the Mason School of Business Full-Time MBA Program who traded in business attire for T-shirts and shorts to participate in a day of giving back to the community on Aug. 15.
