Reynolds Hall may be the future of business, but the Entrepreneurship Club saw opportunity even before construction began. The new building stands on what was once the site of Stansbury Hall, which served as WVU’s beloved Field House, as well as home to a variety of academic departments.
When Stansbury Hall was demolished to make way for the new building, the Entrepreneurship Club acted fast, gathering roughly 140 bricks and bringing them home. The students later hand-washed the bricks in their bathtubs, engraved them with the Flying WV and put them up for sale. Within 72 hours, all the bricks were sold.
All proceeds went to the Entrepreneurship Club to fund future endeavors.
“I, of course, had to buy one myself,” said club member Alexia Morrow. “It’s not only a piece of WVU history, but also a memory of all the hard work I dedicated to the club.”
