bestToday, Crystal and Chuck Maggelet of FJ Management, with Dean Anderson and President Albrecht, held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new FJ Management Center for Student Success at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business.

“I had such a great time at Utah State and feel strongly about preparing students for life beyond college. We employ several USU grads and we want to make it easier for students to launch their careers with us and others. When an opportunity arose where we could help students from our community, we were glad to be able to help,” noted Crystal Maggelet.

The center brings together various student services, including recruiting, student advising, and career development under one organizational structure and in one physical space to create a “one-stop shop” for students seeking academic and career advising.

“This new center will help accelerate the careers of our students by preparing them for pathways of success. From their first day on campus through their graduation, our aim is to provide our students with advising, mentoring, and career development opportunities so that Huntsman students are prepared to compete with the best and brightest students anywhere in the world,” Dean Anderson said.

The Huntsman School purpose statement is “…to be a career accelerator for our students….” By bringing together previously stovepiped services under one structure, the FJM Center will seek to create a seamless means for students to explore career opportunities and outside-the-classroom experiences while navigating their academic coursework.

“Our students come to us with such raw talent, with ambition, and integrity, and a great work ethic,” Associate Dean Dave Patel said. “The services provided through the FJM Center will hopefully open new horizons, help them see and prepare for opportunities to compete in our global economy.”   September 11, 2014
