Bake Sales

Bake sales are held two to three times a semester at Melcher Hall during class hours. They allow students the opportunity to network with other members and officers in an informal setting. It also gives members fundraising experience as well as a chance to volunteer their time and expertise. It is one of the few events held all day, allowing members the flexibility of contributing while on campus.

This enables our students to have direct access to Corporate Partners that are recruiting students for Internships and Full-time positions. By Marketing yourself to corporations utilizing what you’ve learned at our development events in order to receive an Internship/Co-op or Full time

General Meetings

General Meetings (GM) are one of the main events of Bauer SPO. Each GM includes a guest speaker from a world renowned corporation to educate us about their companies culture, industry knowledge, and supply chain department. At the meeting food will be provided as well as a great opportunity to meet fellow SCM Major Students. We also encourage looking up information about the companies before hand to have good background knowledge and be able to ask relevant questions.


Philanthropy events are a way for us to give back to the community in which we live. It also gives us a way to interact with each other and improve teamwork skills. Throughout each semester we partner with different non-profit organizations in the Houston area and preform a variety of services. We have been involved with Feed My Starving Children, Trees for Houston and Kids Meals, just to name a few. We hope you come out and join us in giving back to our community!

Plant Tours

By attending plant tours you will have the opportunity to see each company’s processes and how they benefit the world. This is also a chance for you to learn how Supply Chain relates to every aspect of their business as well as a chance to ask specific questions about the company and the industry


Socials are a great way for our  members to build relationships and network in a fun and informal atmosphere. Building relationships within SPO is one of the factors to success, and is one of the greatest things people take away from this organization.

Student Development Events

Bauer SPO’s Student Development Program, or SDP, is engineered to provide our student members at the University of Houston with relevant information in respect to professionalism, interview preparation, and the supply chain industry; while focusing on the development of interpersonal, or “soft”, skills. The SDP’s intent is to assist our student members during their transition from a college student to a young supply chain professional.


Part of being a Coog means supporting your team. The University of Houston has a long standing tradition of being the premiere Division I college football team in the Houston area. Tailgates are a way for you to interact with your fellow SPO members on game day in a fun and casual environment where we can come together to support our team. Tailgates will consist of snacks/beverages and music, and encourage networking opportunities outside of the classroom. What better way to spend your game day experience than with Bauer SPO?
