Dedication Held for WCU School of Business
The new School of Business building at William Carey University was dedicated on August 28.
The building was completed in July and features state-of-the-art technology. Among the amenities in the building are a reception area, two lecture halls on the first floor and classrooms and a computer lab on the second floor, along with faculty and staff offices, study areas, a kitchen, lounges and conference rooms. Other features of the building include an expansive lobby with a grand staircase and an 8-foot European crystal chandelier in the lobby that was given to the university by a donor.
During the ceremony, Dr. Tommy King, WCU president, welcomed guests. Dr. Cheryl Dale, dean of the School of Business, related how the new building will positively impact business students for many years to come and Michael Coelho, a senior business administration major from Niceville, Fla., expressed appreciation on behalf of his classmates. Dr. Michael Madaris, assistant professor of business administration, brought a Scripture reading from 1 Corinthians 4:1-2, Ephesians 2:10 and Colossians 3:17 and prayed words of dedication.
The new building, which sits on Tuscan Avenue across from the WCU College of Osteopathic Medicine complex, opened on August 25, the first day of fall classes.
