Building open house invitation

The TCU Neeley School of Business just completed a two-year building project that combines our formerly separate buildings into one modern Spencer and Marlene Hays Business Commons.

More than just a pretty face, our new Commons adds much-needed, modern classrooms and team rooms for students (1 in 4 TCU students come through TCU Neeley), offices and meeting rooms for our growing number of faculty and staff, new offices for our student career centers, an auditorium for presentations, and more.

The construction included the demolition of Dan G. Rogers Hall (constructed in 1959) and the addition of Spencer Hays Hall, Tom and Marilyn Sumner Hall, Kim and Bill Shaddock Auditorium, Roach Family Plaza (including a new fountain), Dan G. Rogers Rotunda, as well as a café, classrooms, conference rooms, meeting rooms, team rooms, banquet rooms, offices and informal seating areas.
