Towson University's College of Business and Economics' Enactus chapter placed second in a challenge at the National Enactus Competition and won $5,000.

The chapter submitted its café project (located in the basement of Stephens Hall) in the R.W. Plaster Free Enterprise Challenge to place second in the challenge for the second time.

The project was judged on the venture's profit margin, scalability, sustainability and clarity, among other criteria. 

The café serves on average 275 customers per day from Monday through Thursday and 75 during its half day hours on Friday. Over the last academic year the venture earned $11,000 in profit.
