Campus Campaign 2010: Gifts help create new College of Business facilities

This week's Campus Campaign highlight is the new Sales Center of the UW-Eau Claire College of Business, which made its debut as the site of the November 2009 Great Northwoods Sales Warm-up, a personal sales competition for college students.

The new sales facilities — the Margaret Rathbun Conference Room and Suites, the Missling-Woodford Rathbun Conference Room and the Rex Systems Classroom — are the result of gifts to the UW-Eau Claire Foundation by Rex Systems Inc. of Chippewa Falls.

Campus Campaign gifts from UW-Eau Claire faculty and staff can be directed to funds for the College of Business. Learn more about the new sales facilities and how to contribute to Campus Campaign 2010-11.
