Unfortunately, stress is a staple for most, if not all alums. Some are immersed in tax season, while others are managing a large account or establishing their own start-up business. Still others are balancing their work and personal lives as they pursue their second Walsh degree. Unmanaged stress can wreak havoc on your physical and mental well-being. Leaving you angry and depressed. If you ever feel stressed in your workplace, consider applying some of Duc's easy tips, which she describes in her latest column.

Applauding Alumni

Scott Calka, BBA-MGT 1999


As a long-time fan and employee of the Detroit Tigers, Scott Calka has worked for the club through both the good and bad times. Since graduating from Walsh, he has remained dedicated to the team, while also maintaining a positive attitude, even as the Tigers struggled. After all, during his first 14 years with the team, the Tigers only had one winning season. As Scott points out, fan loyalty is not the only requirement for having a successful career with the Detroit Tigers.
