Open House, Ribbon Cutting Mark Launch of Avron B. Fogelman Center

Avron Fogelman

On Sept. 20, students, faculty members, community representatives and Avron Fogelman himself converged at the Fogelman College of Business & Economics to celebrate the official launch of the Avron B. Fogelman Center for Professional Student Development.

The new center, made possible by a $1.25 million donation from Fogelman, encompasses a wide range of initiatives designed to help students across the college's majors develop the skills they need to succeed in today's competitive business climate. "It got started because of what's called Fogelman Promise, which promises that students are going to be given help with internships and other ways to make themselves more employable once they complete their degrees," said Gaylon Hall, director of the new center. "Seven Fogelman Promise initiatives are currently in place."

Those seven initiatives -- Business Etiquette, Fogelman Feeds, Fogelman Fit, Honors Program, Professionalism First!, Toastmasters and the 4Cs (communication, creativity, critical thinking and emotional control) -- each were represented at the center's launch.

Along with the grand opening of the Avron B. Fogelman Center, the college hosted an open house that highlighted FCBE's major programs, student organizations and more. Hundreds of students attended the two-day event. "That was what we wanted," said Mary Johnson, Honors Student Advisor and an organizer of the event. "We wanted to get the students out there and get them connecting with our faculty and staff. We wanted to interact with them, to show them the people here -- whether they're advising, teaching or providing other services -- are here to help them reach their academic goals."
