From reading this article i learned that Auburn University opened a new recreation and wellness center right on campus. This Center cost a total of seventy million dollars. It was not only the contractors that helped create this amazing place. They took kids advice to understand what they want and what they like. Also they made it for the kids, knowing there would be a constant flow of kids and 72 million dollars would not go to waste. This was very smart because they seem to not have wasted any money and made students enjoy it and want to visit it. Also they placed it right across from a community living area, very convenient. i found it very interesting that they made the inside seem like the outside with tree's, leaves and other door looking things. I think this is important because it is what the kids asked for so they know that i will be beneficial for them. Taking the consumers ideas is one of the best things to do because they are the ones who are paying. i selected this article because it gave me some tips on how to manage a campus and with new improvements you must please the consumer to be successful. This could help me in the future because i will know how to go about making a new building if i own a big company or school.

i learned that crowd attendance is extremely key in any situation. People love a good crowd, even if the team is struggling. People were complaining about the crowd being to loud and obnoxious. Knowing that if she were to actually do something about it the fans would decrease and finally totally kill the program even more. So, Sue Watson (safety officer) replied to this by sending out a letter saying "Sit down, Shut up" Such a bold move by the officer, but it enlightened the fans and could possibly increase the fans instead of just the opposite. I selected this article because i thought it was extremely interesting on to how they responded to the outrageous complaints about a good crowd. This will help me because it shows that not every complaint should be taken seriously, because that would make the majority of the fans un happy and could cause a huge decrease in fans.

I learned that creating a facebook account or any kind of page on social media to promote your company can be very beneficial to your business. Everyone is on social media everyday and are constantly just searching around, one like by one person and suddenly all their friends can see it and the chain goes on. i learned that social media is used for many things by a company such as: Allowing your customers to check in and retrieve items,Announce new products, programs, announce special features and deals. Lastly and most importantly it allows people to chat about it and spread the word to other possible costumers. I choice this article because it gave me tips on how to advertise a business and what could be extremely beneficial even if it does not seem like it. Also i wanted to learn about what kind of things to put on the facebook page when you do create it. This imformation will be helpful because i now know more than one way of advertising and getting the name of my business outwards to costumers bringing in more money.
