“Through engaging Barron’s in its educational program, our students and faculty gain additional insight into investment topics and market trends. We sincerely appreciate Carson for their financial support to bring this program to the college,” said Dr. Kathy Farrell, James Jr. and Susan Stuart Endowed Dean. “Warren Buffett (’51) credits many of his great money decisions to his reading habit. He spends five to six hours a day reading newspapers to corporate reports. Even the busiest, most successful people still find at least an hour to learn every day, and I can’t wait to see our students apply what they learn through this partnership.”
