    Posters up in the Gerdin Business Building are saying there is going to be a Major Gift Announcement made at 10:30-11 in 1148 Gerdin (Auditorium) on Friday. Not 100% positive on the time

    Not to get anyone's hopes up, but maybe the major gift is money for Jack Trice Renovation?

    I'm thinking that if it were for JTS, the announcement wouldn't be at the Gerdin building.

    If that were to happen I am sure quite a few on this site would gladly fork over more money for season tickets!

    I'm Sure its probably someone donating 25 million for education. Who needs to learn?

    yeah it is probably for something worthless like money for new classrooms or computers and other things that don't matter.

    This has been scheduled for quite a while. And, most likely it's a gift for the College of Business.

    I was flipping through channels last night and on the Mediacomm connections channel Kevin Cooney was hosting some show talking about Iowa State. They were talking about how the University is on a campaign pushing for $800 million dollars. The part I saw was about how the Business College would get $42 million to spend on faculty improvement and scholarships. Is that all $42 million gets you these days?

    I think the University should invest some of that into it's athletics. Studies have shown that having better teams increases enrollment! :yes:

    Any idea on how many business students are former engineering students?

    I don't suppose that there is any connection to Charles Durham's passing?

    Could it be that most of the business students you know were former engineering students because you're an engineering student? :wink:

    I am, and I know there are quite a few are. I am pretty sure the dedication is for the Accounting/Finance programs.
