Student Involvement

Real Estate Club

The Carter Real Estate Center works closely with the the CofC Real Estate Club (a student led organization) to host a wide variety of events that involve networking, speakers, professional career advice, exclusive property tours, and fun social events within the community. Every academic semester new events are planned and coordinated with the center. See the Club's web page for the the most up-to-date listing of future events!


Here is a sampling of past, favorite events:

  • Panama Canal Summer Study Abroad Trip: A week-long study of real estate and global logistics in the country of Panama with an emphasis on the canal expansion and it's impact on global trade.
  • Speed Career Workshop Event: Students sit down one-on-one with a variety of industry professionals for a chance to practice interview skills, seek career advice, interview for jobs and internships, and learn how to network. This is a favorite event by far because students have the ability to meet with a myriad of professionals in one evening, an opportunity that does not come around often. Of course, the appetizers and fun raffle prizes might also be a part of this annual event’s success.
  • Awards Reception and Angel Oak Ceremony: Every spring real estate students are invited to a fancy ceremony in the Alumni Hall in Randolph Hall to join in celebration of our outstanding students and their achievements. This white tablecloth event features a catered reception following a ceremony full of honorary speakers and rituals. Graduating  CCIM scholars, CID scholars, and departmental academic awards are all honored. During the ceremony, the new Alpha Sigma Gamma class is inducted under the traditional rituals.
  • Guest Speakers: Twice a month, the CofC Real Estate Club reaches out to our mentors in the community from near and far to speak to our students in regards to his or her career, path to success, and tips of the trade. These events prove to always prove to be full of insight and hands-on experience that can’t be obtained in the classroom. Our guest speakers provide yet another networking opportunity with several connections that often times lead to internships and job offers. We are so thankful to be supported by a wonderful community of involved professionals who are willing to share their time and knowledge.
  • CID luncheons: 10 students are awarded CID scholarships which includes free attendance at monthly CID luncheons. The luncheons provide further insight into a career in real estate and what is currently happening within the profession. This is also a wonderful opportunity for students to mingle with the professional community and network.
  • Social events: The CofC Real Estate Club holds at least one social event at the end of each semester as a send off. Past events have included bowling and snacks at The Alley, a hotel tour and dinner at Hom.
