Situated on the University of Georgia’s historic and beautiful campus, the Terry College of Business enjoys all the benefits of being a collaborative learning community within a nationally prominent research university. Athens has both small-town charm and a penchant for eclecticism, and since it’s just a hop away from Atlanta, UGA students can easily take advantage of the many amenities both cities offer.
Terry Facilities in Athens
Business Learning Community
The Business Learning Community became the new home of the Terry College of Business in 2017. The complex of four — and eventually six — buildings provides the highly collaborative learning environment that Terry’s faculty and staff have long envisioned for all business students.
Dedicated in 2015, Correll Hall was the first building of the Business Learning Community to open. It is named for A.D. “Pete” Correll, chairman emeritus of Georgia-Pacific and a Terry College alumnus, and his wife, Ada Lee Correll, a graduate of the UGA College of Education. The 74,000-square-foot structure aprovides state-of-the-art facilities for the Terry’s graduate programs and college administration, including 10 classrooms, an innovation lab, a graduate commons, project team rooms, and interview rooms.
To the south of Correll Hall are three adjoining buildings that comprise the second phase of construction, opened in 2017: Amos, Benson and Moore-Rooker halls. Benson Hall, on the business school’s east side facing Lumpkin Street, is named in honor of three generations of one of Athens’ well-known families: patriarch W.H. (Howard) Benson, son H.E. (Ed) Benson, and grandson Larry R. Benson. Moore-Rooker Hall, on the business school’s west side facing Hull Street, is named in honor of the Dudley L. Moore Jr. family of Atlanta and the John W. Rooker family of Atlanta. Amos Hall, which connects Benson Hall and Moore-Rooker Hall, is the Business Learning Community’s centerpiece. It is named for Daniel P. Amos, chairman and CEO of Columbus-based Aflac.
A grass courtyard and overlooking mezzanine connect Phase II buildings to Correll Hall. Thanks to a consistent Neo-Georgian style, all elements of the new business school feel interconnected.
Encompassing 140,000 gross square feet, Amos, Benson and Moore-Rooker halls feature two large auditoriums, eight classrooms, a capital markets lab, a music business lab, a café and an undergraduate commons with a south‑facing veranda. The upper floors house faculty and staff from all seven academic departments, project team rooms and seminar rooms.
Phase III will add the final two buildings to the Business Learning Community when construction is completed in 2019. It will house approximately 10 additional classrooms, staff offices, and conference rooms. This phase is scheduled to begin construction in 2017 and be completed in 2019. It will house 10 additional classrooms, staff offices, and conference rooms.
The Business Learning Community has transformed the Terry College of Business by creating an inviting learning environment where students gather, study, work on projects, interact with faculty inside and outside the classroom, and network with alumni and employers.

Brooks Hall was the home of UGA’s business school from the time of its construction in 1928 until the Business Learning Community opened. Originally known as Commerce-Journalism, the building was renamed in 1974 for Robert Preston Brooks, the college’s first dean. Three of Terry’s administrative offices will remain in Brooks Hall until the third phase of the Business Learning Community opens in 2019. The three offices – the Business Office, Office of Marketing and Communications, and Office of Information Technology – occupy the south side of the second floor of Brooks Hall.
Funded through private gifts and dedicated in 1997, Sanford Hall has a student lounge and 12 classrooms with seating capacity from 10 to 330. Charles S.Sanford Jr., a 1958 graduate of UGA and retired chairman and CEO of Bankers Trust, gave the largest gift for the building that bears his family name.
The bustling hub that is downtown Athens is adjacent to UGA’s North Campus and the Terry College. Athens is home to a variety of eateries, pubs, venues and locally-owned shops that have earned the Classic City its reputation as the best college town in America.
Athens has long-been the most celebrated college music scene in the country. Home of the University of Georgia, the Southern city is rich with performance space including the 40 Watt, which has hosted everyone from Pylon to Nirvana to The Pixies, and the reinvented Georgia Theatre… And with its own music festival, Athfest, Athens’s supportive community is perhaps its biggest asset.
Occasionally, I run into people who were here thirty years ago (or twenty, or ten) and then left for a more sensible adult pursuit. Inevitably, they ask me if the Athens music scene of today is anywhere near as good as it was in their own halcyon college years. I've always given the same response: "It’s even better." This answer is often met with disbelief. "It can’t be." "Impossible." "It was so special then." It was special then, no doubt about it. Nonetheless, it keeps on growing.
