Awards Banquet

The Center for Real Estate, in conjunction with the Department of Finance, holds an annual Awards Banquet each Spring semester. Students, alumni, faculty, staff and industry associates are recognized for their achievements and contributions to the real estate industry during the past year. The annual Awards Banquet serves not only as a celebration of individual achievements but also as a testament to the strength and unity of our collective efforts in advancing the real estate industry. We look forward to coming together each Spring semester to celebrate our shared successes and inspire continued excellence in our field.

2024 Banquet

This year, our banquet was held at the Graduate Hotel located on our Storrs Campus. The event kicked off with a networking reception, providing guests with an opportunity to connect and mingle.

Following a delightful dinner, our Director, David Wharmby, welcomed attendees and introduced the evening's agenda. We took a moment to remember and honor two esteemed members of our community who recently passed away: Professor John Harding and former Center Director C.F. Sirmans. The evening also included the presentation of awards and scholarships, recognizing the achievements of outstanding members of our community.

Thank you to all who attended and contributed to making this event possible.
