Perspective: Education is FGCU’s Business
We mean business.
That is the collective message sent by two new, major buildings on the campus of Florida Gulf Coast University.
Both greet visitors as they drive, bike or walk up the main entrance, FGCU Boulevard, off Ben Hill Griffin Parkway.
Lutgert Hall hosts the Lutgert College of Business, which offers four-year degrees in accounting, computer information systems, finance, management and marketing.
The college also offers graduate programs in accounting, taxation and computer information systems, according to the FGCU Web site.
Lutgert Hall cost $20 million, FGCU says.
Business is FGCU’s largest major, with more than 2,800 students, of a fall enrollment of nearly 10,200. Arts and sciences is second with more than 2,600 students.
Holmes Hall, which will open in January, hosts the Whitaker School of Engineering, part of the College of Business. Holmes Hall cost $25 million. The school offers bachelor’s degree programs in bioengineering, civil engineering, computer science and environmental engineering.
Even more so when you see them in person.
