Administrators took turns Saturday evening ringing the bell that once sounded across the trading floor of the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, marking the opening of a new finance lab at a celebration of the Rutgers School of Business-Camden's 25th anniversary. The shiny new room, with stock prices streaming along the wall and 16 workstations with Bloomberg terminals, was a far cry from the run-down annex of Victor Hall, where classes were held when the school opened in 1988. "It gave us some opportunity for creative teaching," said Carol Kaufman-Scarborough, a marketing professor who has been teaching at Rutgers since 1983.

  Though a transplant from the Philadelphia suburbs, Nan Hunter Walnut was as much a creature of the New Jersey Pinelands as the deer drifting past her windows, the quail skittering through the brush, or the raccoons poking around her porch. She moved to 20 wild acres in Southampton Township, Burlington County, in 1970, as development bore down on the forest. She soon became one of the most persistent and persuasive voices among the Pine Barrens' first-generation citizen activists.

ROSETTA BRANDON came from Halifax, Va., where she was raised in a church-going atmosphere with family and friends who imbued in her the ideals of hard work and service to others. "Halifax was known for its church people," said longtime friend Robin Cunningham-Gladden. "They believed in working hard, save your money, do the right thing, be a lady. All those old-fashioned virtues. " Rosetta brought those virtues with her to Philadelphia when she arrived in 1958, took jobs in the computer industry and worked with children as a teacher's aide.

With a $12.5 million gift, Drexel University will start a school of entrepreneurship that will help students start and grow their own businesses - and get paid for it, president John A. Fry said Wednesday. The new school, named after the late Charles D. Close, a 1936 Drexel graduate in engineering, will offer joint degree programs in entrepreneurship and other disciplines across the university. Some programs within the school will begin in the fall, but students won't officially enroll in the joint degree programs until September 2014.

Louis James LaCorte was a man of many sayings, of which the following was his favorite: "This piece of jewelry is one that people will look over, as opposed to overlooking. " It summed up a business acumen that served him well as co-owner of the Owl's Tale, a Haddonfield shop brimful of antiques, estate gems, and figurines. Known for his banter, sartorial taste, and arresting handlebar mustache, he presided over a lively heirloom trade for more than three decades. In the last year, though, illness increasingly came between Mr. LaCorte and the Owl's Tale.

NEW YORK - Saul P. Steinberg, an audacious financier and corporate raider who often drew as much attention for deals that did not happen as for those that did and who often earned millions of dollars either way, died Friday at his home in Manhattan. He was 73. Before his business collapsed into bankruptcy about a decade ago, Steinberg embodied a risk-embracing, sometimes freewheeling approach to business abetted by high-risk, high-yield "junk bond" financing in the 1980s. He earned multiple fortunes that enabled an almost impossibly sumptuous lifestyle, and his wealth thrust him into New York's cozy nexus of finance, high society and philanthropy.

In the past, bringing sports executives to Temple University's Fox School of Business to address students was not an easy process. "Typically, to coordinate an executive in residence, it will take a year to a year and a half. But in this particular case, we started in November," said Gregory L. DeShields, the school's managing director of business development. "I didn't have much experience with social media, but after this, how quickly it worked, I am absolutely speechless in my impression of social media.
