Cookout - April 27, 2010 12-4 p.m. Rudolf Gardens

Please RSVP to Maureen Brant at brant@rmu.edu by April 16th.

School of Business Students,

There is only good news at the School of Business as we end the academic year. Recently, RMU's Board of Trustees approved the groundbreaking of our "New Business Building" which will begin in May 2010 around Rudolf Gardens next to Massey Hall.

As the flagship School of Robert Morris University, this building will provide the best technology and the best educational experience for our students in every classroom and study space. This building will be devoted entirely to student learning and research with state-of-the-art technology facilities.

In addition to multimedia lecture classrooms and computer laboratories, the building will house the PNC Trading Center, the U.S. Steel Videoconferencing and Technology Resource Center and Allegheny Technologies Global Business Library. The PNC Trading Center will replicate for students the experience of working on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The U.S. Steel Videoconferencing and Technology Resource Center will allow us to provide for students the experience with technologies that corporations use in their daily business conducts. The Allegheny Technologies Global Business Library will provide our students with information resources as well as a comfortable and sophisticated study and research space for individual study and for team projects that are an integral part of our curriculum. This new building will be a signature building on our campus and it will be a transformative facility that will move our Business School and our University to another level.

In celebration of your new home and your accomplishments in this academic year, Business Faculty and I invite you to join us for a cookout on April 27, 2010, 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m., Rudolf Gardens. You may stop by at anytime during this time period. This is scheduled during the finals week to allow you to enjoy a meal served by us in the School of Business. Please RSVP to Maureen Brant at brant@rmu.edu by April 16th.

I look forward to seeing you on April 27th.
