Stephen F. Austin State University’s construction management program in the James I. Perkins College of Education recently became a member of Associated Builders and Contractors, a national trade association with more than 22,000 members. Officers of the association’s Houston chapter came to Nacogdoches to meet faculty members and host a construction industry panel for students and community members. The next day, both the construction management and interior design programs hosted a career fair in SFA’s Baker Pattillo Student Center.
