Visit the College of Business Administration construction site and you’ll see floors in place, walls and ceilings coming up, and a new auditorium on its way to completion. These positive signs are concrete proof that the first part of the college’s new home is rapidly taking shape—and right on target for the planned October, 2007, completion.
The “Wall of Stars,” representing building campaign donations from the college’s own internal community, is growing at an equally impressive rate—with contributions to date from students, alumni, faculty, and staff now reaching $88,400.
Each contributor will be recognized with an individual star on the donor ‘Wall of Stars” that will be situated at the heart of Commons Hall within the new building complex.
“We are proud of our success so far and are thrilled that so many of our constituents have chosen to participate in this aspect of our Building for Business Campaign,” said Annabelle Rojas (MBA ’98, BBA ’87), director of external relations and resource development.
The current “Wall of Stars” contribution total includes:
- alumni donations: $23,550
- faculty donations: $38,700
- staff donations: $19,700
- student donations: $6,450
You, too, can still reach for the stars.
As the “Wall of Stars” campaign moves into its final phase, individual donor stars can still be reserved, starting at $150 per star for current students and $300 for alumni, faculty, and staff.
“We definitely have room for more stars,” Rojas said. “It’s not too late to take advantage of this economical, once-in-a lifetime opportunity to leave your legacy in this incredible new building complex and to show your commitment to our college’s future.”
