Credit Union Funds College Trading Center
Students at Valdosta State University can receive hands-on experience trading stocks and other financial instruments, thanks to a donation from Southeastern Federal Credit Union that funded a state-of-the-art facility.
The Southeastern Federal Credit Union Financial Trading Center will be housed at Valdosta State’s new $32 million Health Sciences and Business Administration Building, according to the $189 million credit union in Valdosta, Ga.
Southeastern said it donated $50,000 to help create the high-tech facility that provides hands-on trading experience for the university’s business administration students.
The trading center will allow students to use real money for trading, making it the only one of its kind in the state of Georgia and one of the few located in the southern region of the United States, according to the credit union.
“It’s a delight to see how the College of Business is using this type of monetary support to create real world educational opportunities for students,” said E. Michael Gudely, president/CEO of Southeastern FCU. “We are proud to play a role in the education of the many students who will walk through these doors.”
