ECU celebrates new business, conference center

(Continued)

Ada — Showcasing the business center

ECU showcased its newest asset throughout the day, starting with an open house and guided tours.

College students and faculty members led the tours, which gave visitors a chance to check out the business center’s classrooms and other features. Those amenities included a financial lab, a 24-hour computer room and a courtroom for criminal justice students.

Wendell Godwin, dean of the business school, said the technology would help ECU attract students who had originally considered enrolling at another college.

“They weren’t coming here because they thought they were going to get a better education at a larger school,” he said. “Now they’re touring our facility and seeing that we have some of the same technology. So I can get the same type of education locally at a lower cost point than I can by going off to school somewhere else.”

ECU junior Stacey Zulu said the new building would benefit not only business majors, but all students.

“Anyone can come to this building and access the computer labs, and there’s some freshman classes that are offered in this building,” she said. “So I just think it’s great.”
