A dedication ceremony for the third and final phase of the University of Georgia Business Learning Community was held September 6, 2019, in the outdoor plaza between Ivester Hall and Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall.
“For more than 100 years, our college of business has served our state and the nation by providing our students with a world-class business education. Today, we celebrate the new home of the Terry College and the facilities that will support the teaching, research and service that will produce business leaders and strengthen our economy for the next 100 years,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead.
The dedication of Ivester Hall and Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall marks the finish of a remarkable transformation of the UGA campus and the completion of the new home of the Terry College of Business. Built in three phases over six years, the Business Learning Community was funded through a 50-50 split of state and private support, totaling $140 million. It provides the highly collaborative learning environment that the college’s faculty and staff have long envisioned for all business students, featuring modern classrooms, multipurpose team rooms and spacious common areas.
