SCRANTON Athletics Fund

Greetings Royals Family & Friends, We are proud to announce the creation of the Scranton Athletics Fund, an annual campaign to support and promote athletics at The University of Scranton. The goal of the Scranton Athletics Fund is to provide our students, coaches and teams with a truly transformative experience that is reflective of our Catholic & Jesuit mission as a university. Each year, nearly 400 students participate in intercollegiate athletics at Scranton, proudly representing our community in the spirit of St. Ignatius Loyola. These students are shining examples of the Magis, a restless pursuit of excellence grounded in gratitude, in their academic, social and athletic endeavors. Your gift to the Scranton Athletics Fund will enhance the studentathlete experience at Scranton by providing state-of-the-art training equipment, exciting travel opportunities, additional recruiting resources and more.

Department of Athletics MISSION Statement The Department of Athletics, guided by the principles of a Jesuit education, is committed to providing an environment in which intercollegiate athletic activities are conducted as an integral part of a studentathlete’s educational experience. Specifically, through participation in Division III athletics, our

Student-athletes at The University of Scranton ARE MORE than just athletes. They are scholars who embody our Jesuit ideals, going beyond the norm to become transformational leaders in all pursuits. They are supported by coaches and teammates who ARE MORE than allies; they are family. The Scranton Athletics Fund has been created to provide financial support to the students, coaches and teams that transform our Jesuit ideals into reality. Your gift to the Scranton Athletics Fund can be designated to the area of greatest need or to your favorite team.

As a member of the softball team at Scranton, I learned the value and importance of teamwork. As a doctor today, I rely on these values, and my medical team, to support my patients every day. — Angela Croteau Marx, O.D. ’07

more than just

athletes

I don’t consider the baseball team as teammates, or even as friends. Those guys are my brothers. Somewhere along the way, we became a family. — Bobby Della Polla ’13
