On July 28, 2014, the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology hosted its annual Business Golf Classic at the beautiful Longue Vue Club in Verona, Pennsylvania. Each year, the college holds this event to generate scholarship funds to support students while receiving a quality education within the Eberly College of Business. S&T Bank served as the corporate sponsor for the event.

With a long list of supporting businesses, alumni, and friends of the IUP community, this day turned out to be a day filled with golf, networking, and fun! At the evening reception, President Driscoll addressed the participants, thanking them for the support of IUP and of the scholarship program. Head Basketball Coach Joe Lombardi was in attendance, and Head Football Coach Curt Cignetti gave the group an update on the upcoming football season.

“We are fortunate to have many alumni and friends come out each year for the Golf Classic to support our student scholarship program. We look forward to the silver anniversary of the Classic next year,” said Robert Camp, dean of the Eberly College of Business.

With as little as 10 percent of students receiving financial aid in the form of scholarships and with the increase of costs of college, scholarships are more important than ever. Not only do scholarships help students financially, but they also help to both retain and recruit students. The classic had 110 registered golfers and netted over $39,000 for the student scholarship program!
