Supporting Athletics at RMU

When the RMU men's basketball team upset defending national champion Kentucky at the Sewall Center, nearly 200 members of The 1921 Club and their guests were there to cheer on the Colonials. And the success of all RMU's 23 NCAA Division I intercollegiate athletic teams is due in no small part to the support of those donors and others like them. That's why we want you to join The 1921 Club today.

RMU's winning ways aren't confined to the basketball court. In 2012 the men's ice hockey team won the inagural Three Rivers Classic at CONSOL Energy Center. The women's ice hockey team was the 2012 College Hockey America champion, and former goalie Brianne McLaughlin has now earned two Olympic silver medals. Next fall, we look forward to the first season of new RMU head football coach (and Super Bowl winning former Steeler) John Banaszak, who promises to carry on in the winning tradition of founding head coach Joe Walton, who in 20 years led the Colonials to six Northeast Conference regular season titles and two ECAC Bowl victories.

At Robert Morris, our athletes win in the classroom as well. In 2012 RMU's softball team posted the highest grade point average in Division I for the third time in four years, and senior defensive lineman Nolan Nearhoof of the Colonials football team earned the highest academic honor in program history when he was selected as a National Football Foundation (NFF) National Scholar-Athlete. In addition, nearly 60% of our 550 student-athletes maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above.

None of this happens by accident. That’s where The 1921 Club comes in. The 1921 Club is RMU's official athletics booster club, dedicated to supporting our athletes both in the classroom and as they represent the university through athletic competition. Join The 1921 Club today through a safe, secure online gift right to the Athletics General Fund. See below for more information.
