Student Wins Annual Tuition Raffle

    December 11, 2019

    The University of Scranton Programming Board (USPB) held its annual Tuition Raffle throughout the Fall 2019 semester, with the final drawing occurring at USPB’s Christmas on the Commons event on Sunday, Dec. 8, 2019.

    The recipient this year is Connell Kennedy from Jefferson Valley, New York, and a graduate of Lakeland High School in Shrub Oak, New York. He is a member of the Class of 2022 and is a finance major in the Kania School of Management. On campus, he has been involved with PRISM club, the Irish Cultural Society, and has participated in the Street Sweet service project sponsored by Student Government.

    This annual Tuition Raffle is an opportunity for students and families to win a reimbursement of tuition for a full time student up to the amount of $22,695.00, which is applied to the spring 2020 term. In order to participate, a student must be currently enrolled as a full-time undergraduate at The University of Scranton. 

    The Tuition Raffle greatly helps in deferring the cost of programming events for the senior Class of 2020, including Senior Week activities. While the University provides a portion of funds for campus-wide programming, it does not fully cover senior class programming. Therefore, this raffle is the Senior Programming Committee’s main source of funding for the entire academic year and all senior events. 

    Mission Statement: 

    The University of Scranton Programming Board (USPB) is a student-run organization with the purpose of sponsoring social, cultural, educational, and recreational events at The University of Scranton. We strive to make all of our programs accessible and enjoyable for the campus community. The students involved in USPB will gain valuable leadership experience and learn more about programming and the implementation of both small and large-scale events. Each year, we plan over 50 events as “men & women for and with others” that are open to university students, faculty and staff, and most of which are free.
