The College of Business unveiled the new Shark Tank this month on the Graduate Center third floor, and the campus is buzzing about it.
Some students are only impressed by its appearance, but Ashley Williams and Caleb Perkins are excited to get a hands-on experience of the things they have been learning in the classroom.
Although many students thought were anticipating an actual tank of sharks, the new room is modeled after the television show “Shark Tank,” and gives students the experience of to professionally pitching their ideas and projects.
“It allows business majors apply what they know and have learned throughout the four years, and make a real business plan,” said junior Ashley Williams.
Sophomore Caleb Perkins explained how the room will enhance the cohesiveness of the Business Department.
“Its primary use is for students to have a room designated for presentations and proposal toward business professionals and companies,” Perkins said.
Both Williams and Perkins are very excited about this new accomplishment in the business school.
Perkins is looking forward to the hi-tech amenities the room offers students.
“The room is state of the art,” Perkins said. “It features numerous high definition, plasma screen televisions, an executive, granite table, adequate seating, and transitional glass.” Perkins said, “Dr. (Steve) Greene believes that this is fulfilling the call and mandate of our founder, and chancellor Oral Roberts. Not only is it adding to the design and layout of the school; it is changing the dynamic of the department and encouraging students to interact in a professional, yet educational environment.”
The Business College is eager to see what type of work will be produced in this professional, hi-tech room.
Students and faculty are anxious to know if the College of Business students will survive the Shark Tank or whether they will be fed to the “sharks.”
