CNU dedicated a state-of-the-art trading room in May. Prominently located on the first floor of Joseph W. Luter, III Hall, the room features a stock ticker, Bloomberg software and trading computers.
The room is named in honor of the late C. Marcus “Marc” Cooper, Jr. (1950-2010), who made a positive difference in the local community through his life and 37 years in financial advising. Driven by his tremendous sense of generosity, he believed his success obligated him to be a pillar of support for others.
Cooper’s impressive career included tenures with Paine Webber, Legg Mason and Smith Barney. A commemorative plaque inside the trading room recounts his life and accomplishments. Fundraising to name the room in honor of Cooper was led by his friends Alan (’76) and Debbie (’78) Witt.
