    TCU’s Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) has changed its name in an effort to make sure students understand its mission.

    Now known as the TCU Entrepreneurship Club, the student-led chapter of the national Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization is one of the largest in the nation, according to the club’s information sheets.

    “We started to realize that people didn’t really know what [CEO] stood for,” said Jacquie Hunt, the club’s president. “They didn’t know that we were specifically about entrepreneurship, so this semester and whole year is about rebranding.”

    Hunt, a senior entrepreneurship major, said the organization is within the Neeley School of Business and has “members from all over campus.”

    The club hosts speakers from local businesses to give students the opportunity to ask business-related questions, Hunt said.

    The organization offers a mentor program for its members. Students decide on a field of interest, and the club works with TCU’s Entrepreneurship Center to find local businessmen or businesswomen to serve as mentors for those students.

    The program “matches TCU students with top entrepreneurs in the Dallas Fort Worth region,” according to the club’s information sheets.

    TCU Entrepreneurship Club will offer other programs and competitions, as well as a trip, this semester.
