Larry L. Luing School of Business

Hey everyone! Today has been a great day at school. It was the day of the naming ceremony of the School of Business, which is, from today, the Larry L. Luing School of Business. I feel very honored that I got to be part of the ceremony, and to have shared my experience before such an audience.

“Today we dedicate the Larry L. Luing School of Business,” said Dario A. Cortes, PhD, Berkeley College President. “We honor Larry Luing, the businessman and visionary, the imaginative thinker, the one who was able to create an educational institution that has the level of success, achievement and distinction that continues to this day.”

The remarks and ceremony featured personal letters and citations from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and others.

"Larry L. Luing inherited his love of education and business from his family, which included several teachers, small business proprietors, and a textbook author. Growing up on a 10-acre farm in rural Iowa, Larry was a young entrepreneur who earned enough from his own businesses to pay for his college education." Learn more about him here: link.

To be honest, I felt very proud of being a Berkeley College student. This event confirmed that there is a sense of community at the school, which was one of the main reasons I chose it.

I will share more about the ceremony with you, and I'm sure I'll get pictures and hopefully videos of what was said. It was very exciting for me to give a speech in such an important event for the School of Business, and I want to thank the school for that, specially Dean Dallas Reed for the opportunity and for helping me with the speech.

I hope you are all getting ready for the finals week, and I wish you the best for those! Thanks for reading and see you soon!
