Support Facilities

Our facilities primarily support the management of our $1 million BB&T Student Managed Investment Fund. In the Congdon Hall Building in the center of campus, a learning environment has been designed to emulate the trading floors, offices, and boardrooms of the world's leading industries. The building houses the Financial Markets Room, where students can follow the market in real time with our trading ticker and our 36 computer learning stations, and the Edward Jones Financial Laboratory, home of 10 Bloomberg computer terminals used to manage the student fund. The building also features networking labs, data boards, plasma screens and networked conference rooms.
