Transcript Redesigning GALVESTON Faculty member Patrick Peters discusses a project with graduate student Steve James. Photo by Gary Sapone An:hitecture students showcase their talents Tie fifth year honors studio in the College of Architecture have used their talents to improve one of Texas' largest tourist attractions located in Galveston. The honors students built several prototype models such as landscaping and transportation on Seawall Boulevard and surrounding areas in Galveston. Funding for the project was donated by George and Cynthia Mitchell of Mitchell Energy, The City of Galveston and the Anchorage Foundation of Texas. "This is an extreme proposal interested in revitalizing the Galveston Seawall," said Kenny Jones, a fifth year architecture major. The first stage of the four-part project addresses traffic and convenience obstacles faced by pedestrians and automobiles. Students pinpointed three places at major intersections along the Seawall for parking lots, each containing at least 1,000 parking spaces. These would be connected by a beach trolley that would run parallel to the Seawall, joining major hotels. "These facilities would allow day visitors, as well as occupants of the numerous con- dos in the vicinity, to park con veniently when enjoying the replenished urban beaches," said professor Rafael Longoria, author of the text, Visions 4 Galveston's Seawall. In addition, the students have proposed a plan to introduce new amenities in the area of the Moody Con vention Center. One of the new attractions is a "dolphin ring where free dol phins are fed at regular hours as a tourist attrac tion," said Longoria. Another attrac tion is a public resort located on Menard Park. This area would bring luxurious services, usually associated with upscale hotels such as tennis courts and swim ming pools. "We didn't touch the ex isting. We went beyond the fabric of the existing," said Nathan Somera, fifth year architecture major. Also proposed was a promenade along the Seawall where tourists could enjoy the beach. This public walkway would pair the Strand with the Seawall. The connection would in elude lavish landscaping, which project designers hope will evoke the images associated with a sea side promenade. The project was been displayed in Dallas and Galveston. -Edward Duffin "We didn't touch the existing. We went beyond the fabric of the existing" said Nathan Somera.

Ivancevich, Dean College of Business Administration Photo by Mark Lacy Everybody these days is ranting and raving about small businesses. What's all the fuss about? It's about the 5.8 million jobs that small business created between 1987 and 1992. How do small businesses create so many jobs while having to compete with giant corporations? Entrepreneurs, that's how. Five years ago, the Dean of the College of Business Administration realized this developed with idea to create the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI), the focal point for the new entrepreneur program now offered in the college. The entrepreneurship program, which was designed by Keith Cox, is designed around six courses that teach business in an interdisciplinary fashion. Students coming out of the courses had something that no previous entrepreneurs had—a real fighting chance. The program gave them a jump on their company even before they finished school. The program selected only the best of the best for its first year in existence — only 30 students were admitted out of nearly 100 applicants. It all started last fall with a prerequisite course, Introduction to Entrepreneurship, and was open to 150 students. The lucky 30 who UH's new Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is a hit with students wanting to have control over their own futures. made the grade into the program were screened by three interviewers: two active entrepreneurs and one academic professor. The two questions that guided the interview were: Do these students display attributes that will make them successful entrepreneurs? When they are successful, will they be happy with their choices of professions? "Nothing is worse than choosing a profession that you hate 10 years later," saidDale Toney, program manager of CEI. Following admittance into the program, students completed five course offerings, which were: Revenues, Costs, Capital Structure and Legal Form, Developing a Business Plan and Implementing a Business Plan. All the courses enabled the students to gain hands- on experience because each was team-taught by entrepreneurs and academicians. In addition, all the students had mentors working alongside them throughout the program. Students in the program say they have a more realistic outlook on owning their own business enterprises. The program is now a model for schools around the country. "We will test our program by the quality of our graduates," said Bill Sherrill, the CEI director. "These will be the growing businesses, the job generators and innovations of tomorrow." — Arturo Bahena Entrepreneurship and Innovation 76 62) Academics Architecture/Business 6Q) 77
