Real Estate Club

The Real Estate Club in the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University was established to provide a forum for students with an interest in real estate to learn more about the industry. The club sponsors Excel and ARGUS training for students and frequently hosts guest speakers, who speak on topics including architecture, construction, development, finance, law, management, and sales.

The club meets on Mondays at 7 a.m. in Whitman 304. For more information, contact 

Faculty advisor: Milena Petrova,
Student President: Ayomide (AJ) Onabamiro,
