For those who need financial assistance to afford higher education, Reinhardt offers a variety of options, including the Achievement Scholarship, Blanche Hagan United Methodist Scholarship, Cherokee County Grant, and many resources for outside scholarships. To help prepare for the international world of business, McCamish students can participate in the 11-day educational trip to Japan in 2020. This study abroad opportunity provides an incredible glimpse into a different culture visiting several cities like Osaka, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Tokyo while receiving college credit.
As important as classroom education is for every person, the way they spend time outside the classroom is just as crucial in the formation of the student as a whole. McCamish encourages students to engage with the community and grow in the knowledge of stewardship, leadership, and service. Students can engage on campus in a plethora of ways, including participating in the numerous Reinhardt student organizations and clubs such as ENACTUS, Sigma Beta Delta, Student Activities Council, and the Student Government Association. Other categories of groups include art/music, awareness, club sports, leadership, fraternity & sorority, media, multicultural/diversity, professional, recreation & leisure, and religious.
A great way to gain hands-on experience is through internships, which are highly encouraged and highly beneficial in networking, obtaining experience in the workplace, building an esteemed resume, and leading to potential job offers. Students have interned with companies like Cushing Memorial Park, Inc., Cherokee Conference Center, and United Community Bank. Various opportunities are available for students to serve the community and have a hands-on experience like how accounting students work with a team and provide tax form completion and keeping the books for a company. Also, at the School of Business, the Knox Foundation for Ethics provides ethics events, activities, ethics essay contests, and courses like Legal & Ethical Environment of Business and Ethics Values & the Law.
For those who cannot attend classes in person, the School of Business offers an entirely online Associates in Business Administration and Bachelors in Business Administration.
