@JoshLooney @ESUniversity May 12


My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.

The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.

In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.

I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: East Stroudsburg University

Location: East Stroudsburg PA

On Saturday I will be traveling to my brother’s retirement celebration in the Pocono Mountains. That trip will be bring me close to East Stroudsburg University. Photo gives a nice aerial view of the ESU campus.

ESU

East Stroudsburg Normal School opened its doors on September 4, 1893. The Normal School originated as a private school but ownership was transferred to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1920, and the name was changed to East Stroudsburg State Normal School.

Today, ESU is a comprehensive university in northeastern Pennsylvania offering 55 undergraduate programs, 22 master’s programs and 1 doctoral program. ESU is one of the 14 institutions in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The enrollment of ESU is slightly under 7,000 students. The ESU Warriors compete on the NCAA Division II level.

I have a good friend who is a fabulous leader and serves as Director of Athletics at ESU. His name is Josh Looney and prior to arriving at ESU he held a prominent leadership role at NCAA National Office. I featured him in a March 2015 post I did at the link below:

Wish this trip gave me more time to pay Josh and ESU a visit.
