TWU SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT RECEIVES NATIONAL RECOGNITION

TWU’s School of Management gained national recognition with its placement in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Ten Entrepreneurial Colleges — Limited Curriculum.

“This is the second consecutive year we have made it into the top 10,” said Sherrie Taylor, a lecturer in the School of Management and director of TWU’s Small Business Institute. A total of 124 schools were placed in the limited curriculum rankings.

Taylor attributed the recognition to a combination of the SBI, Students In Free Enterprise (SIFE) and the small business and entrepreneurship minor, as well as a focus within the general business degree.

TWU OUTDOOR POOL OPENS TO THE PUBLIC

Texas Woman’s University Wellness Services’ outdoor swimming pool opened to the public Saturday, May 28.

The pool will be open on Saturdays through Thursdays from noon to 7 p.m. Located near the northeast corner of Bell Avenue and Administration Drive, admission is $2 for the public and free for TWU students and wellness center members.

The pool will be closed to the public on Fridays for rentals, swim lesson make-ups and staff training.

“We have a great crew of mostly college students working at the pool this summer,” said wellness services director John Cissik. “We will also have fun features like water basketball, a volleyball net and plan to install lane ropes soon to divide the pool for multiple uses.”
