It was a great year for the Terry College community. Our faculty published trailblazing research; our alumni shined in business ventures close to home and far away; our students continued to amaze and inspire us; and Terry’s new home made its big debut. It’s fair to say that 2017 delivered many moments we won’t soon forget. Here’s a look back at some of our favorite stories from the past year.
