Alumni Encouraged to Join QC Colleges for a Day at the River Bandits Sept. 2
Seven Quad Cities institutions of higher learning are teaming up to show the cumulative value and strength that colleges and universities provide the greater QC community.
As part of this initiative, St. Ambrose will join with the Quad City River Bandits and partner schools Augustana College, Black Hawk College, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, Palmer College of Chiropractic, Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences and Western Illinois University to host a QC Colleges Day at the Ballpark on Sept. 2, 2018 at Modern Woodmen Ballpark in Davenport.
SAU alumni and students are encouraged to come out in their school colors for the Bandits' 1:15 p.m. meeting with the Peoria Chiefs. Tickets will sell for a discount price of $3.50. Click here and type SAU in the Special Offer Code box.
"We're hoping for a large turnout from all seven schools, with alumni and students sporting their school colors as evidence of the many QC residents who benefit from local colleges and universities and who, in turn, become active and productive citizens in the community," said Sister Joan Lescinki, CSJ, PhD, president of St. Ambrose. "While on some levels, we are competitors, in all of the important ways we are partners in making our world and especially our hometown a better place to live."
QC Colleges Day at the Ballpark is one of several aspects of this initiative, which is being presented in partnership with the Quad City Chamber of Commerce QC2030 initiative. Look for more information at sau.edu, in campus social media forums, and throughout the Quad Cities in the coming days.
