College of Aeronautics Alumni Association
Alumni organizations are an important part of any collegiate experience. Alumni support the college and students in many ways like identifying important topics for new courses, identifying new students, and helping to find internship and other opportunities for them. The College of Aeronautics Alumni Association (COAAA) is no exception, they attend college fairs, help new alumni find employment, and in some cases even teach some classes. Ultimately, the COAAA helps the College of Aeronautics continuously improve the learning environment and enhance the educational experience for generations to come.

The College of Aeronautics is requesting donations to change the look of Skurla Hall's Atrium.
The Skurla Hall Atrium requires about $50,000 worth of renovations. These needed changes/additions such as furnishings, tile repair, and custom built-in casework will greatly improve the look of the atrium, and capture the very essence of the activities and programs offered within Skurla Hall.
Your donation helps make this renovation possible! By working together, we are able to complete these needed upgrades.
George M. Skurla Hall, built in 1991, is the home of the College of Aeronautics. Mr. Skurla was former chairman and president of Grumman Corporation and member of the university board of trustees. He made numerous contributions to the university. Skurla Hall is a two-story building that includes faculty offices, classrooms, laboratories in air traffic control, advanced systems and computers, and a 140-seat auditorium. The lecture auditorium is used for events such as the Florida Airports Council Noise Abatement & Community Affairs Meeting and other seminars offered by all campus colleges. Located on the first floor are several lecture style classrooms with elevated seating for greater ease in viewing the whiteboards or projection screens.
