Dear Fellow Tigers, Welcome to the IPTAY 2017 year! Since its founding in 1934, IPTAY has been committed to supporting Clemson studentathletes. IPTAY provides funding for athletic scholarships, new and upgraded facilities and the Nieri Family Student-Athlete Academic Enrichment Center. In addition, the “One IPTAY” enterprise oversees the management and oversight of all premium seating within our athletic venues, as well as the Block C Club. IPTAY also provides the largest academic endowment on campus to nonathlete students. We truly appreciate all that you do to enable IPTAY to fund these initiatives that help Clemson Athletics be the model program that it is today! The 2015-2016 academic year for our Tigers was marked by record-breaking success both in the classroom and in athletic competition. At Clemson, we strive to field nationally competitive teams that are also committed to academic achievement. In the 2016 spring semester, 261 student-athletes posted a 3.0 GPA or better, while 54 recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA. Accomplishments like this, both on and off the fields of competition, are a testament to the importance of continuing to invest in programs that directly impact the lives of nearly 500 student-athletes in our 19 sports. At IPTAY, our mission is to provide Clemson student-athletes with the total athletic and academic experience, and I would like to thank our 16,320 members who support IPTAY and make this possible. If you are not currently an IPTAY donor, I urge you to join IPTAY at whatever level you can and support the “One IPTAY” enterprise as we continue in this new era for IPTAY and Clemson Athletics. On behalf of our staff, coaches and student-athletes, I would like to thank you for your generous support as we look forward to the upcoming year!
Davis Babb Chief Executive Officer, IPTAY
