On July 27, 2015, the Eberly College of Business and Information Technology hosted the 25th 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 the recruitment and retention of students. 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 was filled with golf, networking, and fun! At the evening reception, student scholarship recipients Jennifer Johnson (Marketing and Economics) and Deric Schmidt (MIS) addressed the participants, thanking them for supporting IUP and the scholarship program. Forty alumni participated in the golf event this year.

“We are fortunate to have many alumni and friends come out each year for the Golf Classic to support our student scholarship program. This was a particularly special year being our silver anniversary, and we are grateful for our generous sponsors and participants,” 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 in the cost 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 93 registered golfers and netted over $37,000 for the student scholarship program!

Cynthia Strittmatter ’83 M’87, assistant dean for Administration at the Eberly College, and Nadav Baum ’86 of BPU Investment Management, Inc. served as cochairs for the event.
