Event Description

Pack the Cat – Pay it Forward

Wednesday, October 9
5:30 – 6:30 pm
Cat Auditorium – SFHB 139

Take the opportunity to meet and visit with University President Larry Dietz and hear his thoughts on “students helping students.” Refreshments will be provided.

President Dietz and Dean Samant have both taken a personal interest in this annual COB initiative, and President Dietz will be speaking in the COB at 5:30pm – 6:30pm in the CAT Auditorium on Wednesday, October 9th.  Students will have the opportunity to hear the President speak and then network personally with him after the speech.

Pay it Forward is about “students helping students.”  It is a student fund backed, in part, by the students, faculty, and staff of the College of Business and provides a unique opportunity to help individuals develop personally and professionally.

Each year, the PIF student team puts on a series of fall and spring events designed to raise awareness of the financial support offered by PIF and to raise funds that are annually matched by COB Alum, Mr. Ron Whitton.  Since its inception in the spring of 2018, the PIF fund has given out over $3,000 to COB students to help with their professional development needs.

This year, we have been able to make supporting PIF simple.  Participants in the fundraising drive can easily visit the PIF crowd-funding page (the ISU “Hatch” page) at:  https://hatch.illinoisstate.edu/PIF

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
