Business Learning Community
The Business Learning Community is the new home of the Terry College of Business.
The complex of 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 provides state-of-the-art facilities for 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 comprising the second phase
of construction, opened in 2017: Amos Hall, Benson Hall, and Moore-Rooker Hall. 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.
The Foley 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 Hall, Benson Hall and Moore-Rooker Hall
house Casey Commons — a 5,000-square-foot area where students, faculty and staff interact
on a daily basis — two large auditoriums, eight classrooms, the Benn Capital Markets
Lab, a music business lab, team rooms, and the Rothenberger Café, which features an Au Bon Pain bakery. The upper floors house faculty and staff from all seven academic departments, project team rooms, and seminar rooms.
Phase III of the Business Learning Community, comprises two buildings and a large
outdoor space. Ivester Hall, named for M. Douglas (Doug) Ivester, is located at the corner of Baxter and Lumpkin
streets and is in recognition of his steadfast support of UGA. Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall – located at the corner of Baxter and Hull streets – honors the couple’s longstanding
support of UGA. The buildings feature two 350-seat auditoriums (one named M. Douglas
Ivester Auditorium), eight undergraduate classrooms and interview suites. Additionally,
they house the Selig Center for Economic Growth, Terry’s undergraduate student services
and corporate relations, marketing and communications, information technology, and
business offices, as well as a behavioral lab and a computer lab for marketing research.
Coca-Cola Plaza, named in recognition of many UGA alumni and friends associated with
the Coca-Cola family of companies, sits between the two buildings and serves as a
gateway into the Business Learning Community.
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.
