Members of the Fall 2013 Business Team, led by Don Colebourn, were in Hanoi, Vietnam when a weakened Typhoon Haiyan was forecasted to hit the city. Miraculously, the storm veered off its predicted course and the team experienced only heavy rain. The storm did present a few challenges, but this “incredible business education team stayed positive and pursued excellence in each presentation in spite of scheduling disruptions,” according to REI-VN Director, Brian Teel. This team instituted a new format—changing the way the team interfaced with students, thereby better serving those in their classes at universities in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
