Royce Builders of Houston has given $50,000 to underwrite Mays’ Freshman Business Initiative (FBI) for the 2003-2004 academic year.

FBI brings together small groups of freshmen with student peer advisors and faculty mentors. The goal of the learning community is to prepare students for university life and provide business leadership principles and other skills that might not be addressed in traditional business courses.

“The Freshman Business Initiative is a truly unique program and having the opportunity to contribute something back to the university is great,” says John Speer, president of Royce Builders. “But, having the added ability to help assure the success of our incoming freshmen is inspirational.”

Royce Builders includes Royce Homes, Espree Homes, Enclave Homes, Michael Thomas Estate Homes, Texas Colonial Homes and XL Homes. The company, begun in 1984, currently offers its services in Houston, Phoenix, Atlanta, and Dallas and has won several awards for its plans and customer service.
