On Monday, October 31, the Stillman School of Business closed The NASDAQ Stock Market in celebration of the first anniversary of the School's Center for Securities Trading and Analysis. Karen Boroff, dean Stillman School of Business, Father Paul Holmes, vice president and interim dean Whitehead School for Diplomacy and International Relations, alumni, students and faculty rang the exchange's closing bell at 4 p.m. The event was broadcasted live on the NASDAQ tower, over the Web and on cable and satellite TV.
While the Seton Hall delegation rang the closing bell, a video promoting the Stillman School played on NASDAQ's famous video screen in Times Square. The screen, which curves around the NASDAQ tower, stands nine stories tall and, at 120 feet high by 90 feet wide, is the world's largest stationary video screen. You can watch a version of the Stillman video that was specially formatted to reflect the screen's size as well as the 26 office windows covered by the screen. Although it's hard to imagine, the video will cover 10,800 square feet when projected onto the screen.
Kos Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a member of the NASDAQ, is the School's sponsor. Representing Kos Pharmaceuticals is Adrian Adams, president and CEO, John J. Howarth, vice president of investor relations, and Robert Baldini, '53 B.S., vice president. Baldini, a member of the Seton Hall University Board of Regents, was instrumental in securing the sponsorship.
One year ago, the School celebrated the opening of the Center by ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.
