Center for Financial Services

The Center for Financial Services (CFS) was created in 2001 with contributions from private companies such as Citigroup/Primerica. The Center is now titled The First Financial Services Center with the naming gift provided for Scianna Hall. Its role is to prepare students for careers in the financial services industry and to meet the demands for employees knowledgeable in a full range of financial services. Other center activities include facilitating interaction between students and prospective employers and hosting pertinent research presentations by Southern Miss and other guest faculty members. As a research center, the CFS also provides information beneficial to the financial services industry. The CFS houses a student trading room, providing real-time access to current financial information, economic forecasts and industry research.
