Among the building's many noteworthy features are a 3-D printing innovation lab, a Social Media Listening Center powered by Radian6, a Financial Resource Center with multiple Bloomberg terminals, interview rooms for corporate recruiting, state-of-the-art classrooms and computer labs, a 150-seat lecture hall that may be used for public events as well as classes, collaborative spaces for networking, team building and group study and market research/analysis labs. The recently named Ellyn A. McColgan Student Services Center provides undergraduate students with integrated and individualized academic advisement and career placement programs from admission to graduation, and graduate students with support and resources for career development. The school also incorporates the Feliciano Center for Entrepreneurship, which fosters an entrepreneurial mindset and nurtures an extensive community of followers through innovative, interdisciplinary programs and events.
