On Thursday, April 30, 2015, students from all majors in Eberly College gathered in the Field House for an end of the year recruitment event and to support the local charity, It’s About the Warrior.
The goal of the event was for students to learn about Eberly organizations, their projects, and their community service. More than 100 students participated and came to watch their favorite professors get “pied” as part of the charity, play their favorite
summer games (corn hole, ladder golf, and Frisbee), listen to music provided by a student D.J., and interact with other student organizations while enjoying a cookout provided by Eberly and desserts provided by Giant Eagle.
During the last week of April, student representatives collected money in the Eberly Atrium, asking the donor to nominate a faculty member to participate in the fundraiser. The top three with the most money raised were “treated” to a “pie in the face.” These professors were Brion
Scudder, finance and legal studies; Daniel Lawson, finance and legal studies; and Ramesh Soni, management. All three faculty members were “real troopers” about the activity and benefit.
All money collected went to this semester’s charity, It’s About the Warrior. COBSAC was able to raise more than $650 for the charity this semester, exceeding their goal of $500.
It’s About the Warrior’s mission is to assist and empower the tri-state area’s (Western Pa., Eastern Ohio, Northern W.Va.) post-9/11 veterans and their families with a transitional, economic, recreational, or therapeutic program that leads them to a more successful and enriched life.
