Lee University will host an open house at the new School of Business building on Thursday, Nov. 2, from 3-5 p.m. for friends and neighbors in the community. 

“I think this building provides a space for our students to thrive and develop their skills as they prepare to become future business leaders,” said Cole Strong, vice president for operations at Lee. 

The two-story building occupies the education wing of the former First Baptist Church on Church Street. In addition, a connecting area was added to the north side of the building to connect Pangle Hall and the School of Business. According to Mr. Strong, this allows the building to have a grand entrance overlooking the South Campus Quad.  

The School of Business has a total seating capacity of 408 and includes state-of-the-art computer and technology labs. There are collaborative classrooms and enhanced classrooms in addition to conference rooms and a tiered lecture style classroom.

The building also has office space for up to 18 faculty and features a student commons area on the second floor.  

“Faculty, staff, and students of the School of Business are delighted to be in our new facilities,” said Dr. Dewayne Thompson, dean of the School of Business. “Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but the technology compliments our pedagogy and creates an outstanding learning environment. Additionally, our offices provide wonderful space to meet with current students, as well as prospective students.”  

The building opened for classes after Lee’s fall break earlier this month. At the open house, guests will have the opportunity to explore the building and enjoy the various common spaces. 

“I so enjoyed watching our students come in that first day, wide-eyed and awe-struck by our new building,” said Dr. Thompson. 

The School of Business is part of the recent development of the South Campus Quad, which includes the Communication Arts Building, Nursing Building, the Lacrosse Field, and the Forum, which is still under construction. 

This event is free, non-ticketed, and open to the public.
