College of Business
Hosted by the College of Business Advisory Board, the annual Fall Celebration brings together alumni, students, faculty and staff to celebrate the college’s recent achievements and to recognize outstanding alumni. The highlight of the evening is the kick off of our yearlong Albrecht Distinguished Lecture Series.
Dick Vitale, ESPN College Basketball Analyst
Following a college and NBA coaching career, Dick Vitale joined ESPN during the 1979-80 season and has become the game’s top analyst and ambassador. His thorough knowledge of basketball is brought forth in an enthusiastic, passionate, sometimes controversial—but never boring—style. “Awesome, baby” and “diaper dandy” are just two of the many Vitale-isms to take a life of their own. Vitale is a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, an author of several books, and a devoted philanthropist. He has helped raise over $130 million for cancer research through the V Foundation and established scholarships for the Boys and Girls Club, Notre Dame University, and his alma mater, Seton Hall. Vitale participates on the selection committees for the Naismith and Wooden Awards and is a member of The Associated Press voting panel for the Top-25 teams in college basketball.
