GSFIC began construction of the final phase of the Business Learning Community in July 2017, which includes two buildings—Ivester Hall, and Sanford and Barbara Orkin Hall—separated by Coca-Cola Plaza. With all six buildings now complete and in one central location, the Business Learning Community allows for a connected and collaborative space for learning.  

The Business Learning Community features modern classrooms, spacious auditoriums, and state-of-the-art labs that will be utilized for sales and marketing research. UGA’s Terry College of Business will now evolve into a unified community where students have the opportunity to study, research, and interact with other students and faculty in one central location.
