Woolsey Hall, a new business school building at Wichita State University, makes its debut

News Tech: Business students at Wichita State University experienced their new residence for the first time on Monday. Woolsey Hall, a $60 million building dedicated to providing students with new and improved learning opportunities, was unveiled by the Barton School of Business.

For some pupils, the new facility has created excitement, which may have a significant impact in the classroom.

“What’s most unique about this building is its energy. According to Duane Nagel, department chair and associate professor of marketing at Woolsey Hall, “you really do get to kind of experience the entire building at once when you enter in the door and you come into the atrium.

“When I arrived this morning at around 7:30, I actually observed a kid seated in one of the classrooms who had created a 360-degree video to demonstrate their location. So, whenever there is that much excitement, just being here will undoubtedly affect how they learn, according to Nagel.

Another tool can be found in the Koch Global Trading Center where students have the opportunity to check stocks for the day. It gives them all an unforgettable learning experience.

“I think it’s been a great addition to the Barton School and really kind of bringing forward what we do here, and giving our students the brand of experience and really helping them maximize their time here,” said Nagel.
