Whittier College's Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) club won a championship in the 2010 SIFE USA Regional Competition held in Orange County on March 19. Whittier competed against colleges such as Chapman University, University of Alaska, Fairbanks, Azusa Pacific University, and Cal Poly Pomona.
Whittier will compete again at the 2010 SIFE USA National Exposition in Minneapolis on May 11-13. Through a written annual report and live audiovisual presentation, teams report the results of their community outreach projects to panels of business leaders serving as judges and are evaluated based on how successful they were at creating economic opportunity for others.
SIFE is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize college students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders.
