ODU student program wins regional award

An Old Dominion University program drawing on the business knowledge of students has been cited by a regional academic group.

The Southern Association of College and University Business Officers selected ODU’s Monarch Project as its grand finalist in a best-practices competition.

The Monarch Project employs Old Dominion students to help the university’s finance office. One of their programs, Monarch Millionaire, has provided financial-literacy classes to students.

“The students in our program are passionate about what they do, and it shows through programs like Monarch Millionaire,” Bill Edmunds, acting administrative operations officer at ODU’s Office of Finance, said in a statement.
