Community Invited to “I Heart Thiel Day” on Dec. 7

GREENVILLE, Pa.—The public is invited to celebrate the opening of the Rissell-Schreyer Dome and all things Thiel College at I Heart Thiel Day on Dec. 7, 4-9 p.m., in Thiel’s Rissell-Schreyer Dome at Alumni Stadium in Greenville, Pa. This annual event is free and open to the public.

The family-friendly I Heart Thiel Day celebration features a variety of activities for everyone – from batting cages to an obstacle course and much more – and a $5 all-you-can-eat dinner buffet is offered by AVI Foodservices. Community members and Thiel College alumni, faculty, staff and students are invited to produce a short video (30 seconds or less) telling us why you love Thiel too! The videos will be shown through the evening on Dec. 7.

The Dome will be open for community access again this winter and spring. It will be available for walking Monday through Friday, 8 to 11 a.m., and Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The driving range will be available on Tuesday, Thursday and most Saturdays (depending on varsity athletic use) from 8 to10 a.m. Buckets of golf balls (approximately 50) are available for $5.

For the safety of community members and Thiel’s student-athletes, the community’s cooperation in recognizing the College’s wishes to keep its varsity athletic practices closed to those outside of the Department of Athletics is very much appreciated.

The Rissell-Schreyer Dome is available for rental to a variety of groups and organizations at a reasonable cost. Contact Dan McMillen at 724-589-2239 for more information.
