Oct. 15: Dedication of a new state-of-the-art trading room

FREDERICK, Md.—A new academic space complete with state-of-the-art technology will be dedicated Oct. 15 at Hood College.

The Virginia Munson Hammell ’67 Trading Room was constructed in Rosenstock Hall over the summer and is now open for classroom use. The trading room will be dedicated with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a tour of the space at 5 p.m.

This addition to Hood’s academic facilities fulfills the vision of the College’s business administration department to provide a place for students to simulate real-world experiences of working with financial markets through securities trading and portfolio management. The room exposes students to similar technology and analytical tools as used on Wall Street and features trading stations, a stock quote ticker and financial investment software. Funding for this room was secured through a lead gift from alumna Virginia Munson Hammell ‘67 and gifts from Janet Hobbs Cotton ‘59 and her husband John, Susan Edmiston ’87, Robert Hooper, Neal Wilson and Frederick County Bank.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Sang Kim at or 301-696-3693.
