The power of the pen

There’s a certain sense of joy that comes when reminders of your alma mater pop up in an unexpected place. For Peter Titlebaum, coordinator of the sport management program and associate professor in the department of health and sport science, helping graduates make the University of Dayton connection is simple: All it takes is a pen.

“One of the things I do when UD students graduate is give them a sport management program pen,” Titlebaum says.

This very same pen moonlights as a networking tool. When Titlebaum has speaking engagements and presentations, he thanks UD folks in the audience for being there by giving them a pen.

Michael V. Ferrazza ’96 and Julie Bartel ’02 were two such former Flyers in attendance when Titlebaum lead a talk about sponsorship Jan. 30 at the National Sports Forum in Oklahoma City. While they weren’t Titlebaum’s students during their time at UD, they each earned a pen on this day and, in turn, some new connections.

“There’s something of a loyalty with UD, with sharing communication,” Titlebaum said. “These were two people at my session who work in the industry, who didn’t know each other, and are now connected. And now I’m connected.”

Flyers past and present can agree that UD bonds run deep. Why not seal it with a pen?

“I know that it works,” Titlebaum says, “and UD cares about each other.”
