THIEL COLLEGE FUND RAISING
RECORDS SECOND STRAIGHT BANNER YEAR
For immediate release July 26, 2001
GREENVILLE, Pa. - Charitable giving to Thiel College
reached a new high for the second straight year, as gifts received for the fiscal year ending June 30 totaled $3,822,214.
"Thanks to the increasing generosity of so many alumni and friends of the college, we are able to address
current needs, build upon our physical plant situated in this scenic environment, and plan for future growth,"
said David J. Grober, vice president for college advancement.
"In this past year, giving has centered around the campaign for Alumni Stadium - a $2.6 million project realized
with multi-year pledges - the annual fund, and some estate plans which have been settled with Thiel as a beneficiary,"
The college's annual fund represents the largest pool of unrestricted funds, aside from tuition revenue. The fund
reached a new high in this period, with $571,064 contributed.
"Despite adverse economic conditions throughout the year, Thiel alumni and friends took part in great number
with gifts to the annual fund," said Lynn McClimans, director of annual giving and parent relations. "We
stand ready once again to embark on a multi-faceted, strategic approach which combines in-person, student phonathon,
direct mail, and online giving, as well as electronic funds transfers."
"Fund raising and enrollment go hand in hand," said Thiel's President and CEO Dr. Lance A. Masters. "We
anticipate about 1,100 students on campus for the first day of classes, achieving a level not reached in nearly
30 years. We are pleased to be able to offer an increased and enhanced infrastructure for them, both in and out
of the classroom. Once they are successful as students, they are likely to become successful alumni."

POTENTIAL HOST FAMILIES
ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND AUG. 2 MEETING
For immediate release July 23, 2001
GREENVILLE, Pa. - For those who are interested in hosting a
Thiel College international student, the college will hold a discussion and information meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday,
Aug. 2, in the college's Howard Miller Student Center.
Brad Skippon, coordinator of international student affairs, will discuss how to become a host family and the expectations
of the role. Thiel is currently searching for host families for the upcoming 2001-2002 academic year.
"Host families who help Thiel's international students provide much needed exposure to family life in the
United States and assistance in the students' lives both on and off campus," said Skippon.
Hosting a student is not a live-in arrangement, and is intended to broaden the students' understanding of American
culture. Hosts can offer as much time as they wish, and families with children are encouraged to participate.
For those who are interested in hosting a student but unable to attend the session, please call Skippon at 724-589-2036.
