Today the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business celebrated two milestones: the dedication of Amos Hall, Benson Hall, and Moore-Rooker Hall, three buildings that together comprise the second phase of development of a new Business Learning Community; and the groundbreaking for the third phase of construction.
Correll Hall, which opened in 2015, marks the northern gateway to UGA's Athens campus and provides a home for Terry College's Master's programs in business administration, accountancy, and market research. The three second-phase buildings, forming a quadrangle with Correll Hall, accommodate the school's undergraduate programs. Encompassing 140,000 gross square feet, the phase two buildings provide two large auditoriums, eight classrooms, a capital markets lab, a music business lab, a café, and the Casey Commons, which opens to a south facing veranda. The upper floors house offices for faculty and staff from all seven academic departments, project team rooms, and conference rooms. Primarily neo-Georgian in expression, the new Terry School incorporates Greek Revival motifs that characterize the architecture of UGA and Athens, carrying forward the campus's historic palette of red brick, limestone trim, and slate roofs. When the third phase of development is completed, the Terry College of Business will be organized around two quadrangles that step down a 40-foot grade. The future buildings will accommodate research centers and additional faculty offices.
“Today we are celebrating more than bricks and mortar—we are celebrating the great partnership between the university, our alumni and friends and the state of Georgia,” said UGA President Jere W. Morehead. “The University of Georgia is grateful for the deep support that exists for our institution and its outstanding Terry College of Business.”
