Enhanced Learning through State of the art facilities
A college on the move

In August 1998, faculty, students and staff moved into Fisher and Gerlach Halls. The opening of these first two buildings marked the completion of Phase I of the six-building project.

Last year’s graduate students were the first to take classes, conduct research, interact with corporate partners and explore career options in the new facilities. Highlights of Gerlach Hall include:

  • Tiered and flat classrooms equipped with individual computer ports and seminar and breakout rooms for small group study.

  • The Batten Investment Management Lab designed for today’s student of finance with Internet, videoconferencing and satellite uplink capabilities.

  • The Bank One Graduate Student Lounge, a beautiful gathering space for study and interaction.

  • A career services area with the latest in resume and job listing technology, as well as career information and counseling services.

  • A recruiters’ center containing private rooms and meeting areas for interviewing job candidates, with Internet access, telephone and fax providing a "virtual office."

Scheduled to open in the fall of 1999 are Schoenbaum Hall (undergraduate program), Mason Hall (library and computing), and Pfahl Hall (executive education), with a sixth building, a 151-room executive residence, to be completed in 2002.


The power of technology

The new business campus provided a state-of-the-art learning environment for Fisher students, faculty and executives.


Web-based instructional support

At the Fisher College’s chalk-free campus, students in many courses can review PowerPoint lecture notes, join in course-related online chat rooms, "discuss" one-on-one with faculty members during electronic office hours, take quizzes and review their grades--from any computer, anywhere. Some faculty members have established course-related Web sites with links to case studies and other valuable information.

Internet access
Students with laptops have access to more than 3,000 active data ports in the new buildings, which provide instant access to the Internet.


Videoconferencing
Through the college’s "premier partnership" with Nasdaq-Amex, videoconferencing capabilities make it possible for student investment management team members to link with traders, analysts and executives live from Wall Street. Live videoconferences have also been held with executives from Microsoft and undergraduate honors students from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa.

Multiple language capabilities
In the Berry Auditorium, lectures can be translated into four different languages simultaneously using a wireless headphone system, allowing students, faculty and visiting executives from around the globe to hear their native tongue.

Satellite capabilities
Distance education is a focus at the Fisher College with the ability to broadcast and receive satellite programming in classrooms throughout the business campus.


Video on demand
Expanded use of this technology includes review tapes of classroom presentations, and role-plays and preview tapes of new material for critiquing and in-class discussion. Students can access the video-on-demand library of course materials from any computer and come to class prepared for in-depth discussion of content. They also can view recruiting videos from the career services library, enabling them to better prepare for interviews.

Smart podiums
Touch screen devices provide control of lights, screens, projectors, computers and videoconferencing technology at the podium.


Fisher College celebrates partnerships

Fisher and Gerlach Halls were officially dedicated in October of 1998. The two-day event included a "technology tour" in Gerlach classrooms, featuring a videoconference stock purchase through the Nasdaq market site in New York and video connections with college alumni and friends in Rotterdam, Spain and London. Former U.S. Trade Representative Carla Hills and Peter Ueberroth, former baseball commissioner and president/CEO of the Los Angeles Olympic Organizing Committee, were among the guest speakers. Leslie H. Wexner, chairman and founder of The Limited, Inc., announced a $1 million gift to establish a Fisher Council on Global Trade and Technology in honor of his mentor and friend, Max M. Fisher.

Business Resource Center named

In recognition of his generosity to the college, the Business Resource Center has been named after Raymond E. Mason, Jr. Mason Hall will open in the autumn of 1999.
