Major Gifts & Endowments
Thanks to the generosity of Freeman's alumni and friends, the Freeman School has been able to complete several major undertakings, including world-class facilities and programs for our students.
Housed in a $50 Million complex, including the state-of-the-art Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II, the Freeman School offers students a truly world-class learning environment. The technological centerpiece of Goldring/Woldenberg Hall II is the Trading Center, a $2.7 million trading room that acts as a hands-on laboratory for the teaching of energy, risk management, equities and options and was featured on CNBC. The systems in the Freeman School's labs, classrooms and lecture halls are updated every three years, to keep pace with ever-changing technology. Goldring/Woldenberg Halls I and II were both built for business, and both are made possible through alumni contributions.
Endowed support for the Freeman School provides for many outstanding student programs including Burkenroad Reports and the Darwin Fenner Student Managed Fund, Freeman Days in New York, D.C., Houston and New Orleans, and the Goldring Institute for International Education. Your contributions also support valuable student services including the Turchin Library, the Burkenroad Symposium and the R.W. Freeman Distinguished Lecture Series.
