"REO was single-handedly the most beneficial aspect of my college career. The advisors, Dr. Paul Goebel and Dr. David Harrison, were tremendous. Each had industry experience, which allowed them to bridge the gap between academia and practice. Jared Harrell, the current advisor to REO, is an asset to the college. His background in law and finance is perfectly suited for the role. "​

“Touring projects around Lubbock and learning how deals get done was my favorite part of REO. When I was in REO, we toured the UP on Main and University (now called ULofts). The new owner had just completed a major renovation that had gone way over budget. It was beneficial to students to see the challenges the developer faced in the mixed-use project and how the developer overcame this challenge.”
