    Major Gift Announcement

    Posters up in the Gerdin Business Building are saying there is going to be a Major Gift Announcement made at 10:30-11 in 1148 Gerdin (Auditorium) on Friday. Not 100% positive on the time

    Not to get anyone's hopes up, but maybe the major gift is money for Jack Trice Renovation?

    I'm thinking that if it were for JTS, the announcement wouldn't be at the Gerdin building.

    If that were to happen I am sure quite a few on this site would gladly fork over more money for season tickets!

    I'm pretty sure this has been scheduled for a while.

    Re: Major Gift Announcement

    This has been scheduled for quite a while. And, most likely it's a gift for the College of Business.

    Re: Major Gift Announcement

    I was flipping through channels last night and on the Mediacomm connections channel Kevin Cooney was hosting some show talking about Iowa State. They were talking about how the University is on a campaign pushing for $800 million dollars. The part I saw was about how the Business College would get $42 million to spend on faculty improvement and scholarships. Is that all $42 million gets you these days?

    I think the University should invest some of that into it's athletics. Studies have shown that having better teams increases enrollment!



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.
