The Corporate Cup

On Saturday July 18, 2015, a group of students were sponsored by their client to participate in the first annual Huntington Bank Corporate Cup to help raise money for Pelotonia Cancer Research. The group was able to rock some Duke pride with team t-shirts, represent Duquesne, and be sponsored by Tom Nist of Huntington Bank to go toe-to-toe with 9 other corporations to fight for the number one spot. The team was able to work and play along side various ranking managers and employees of these other corporations and Huntington Banks itself. They participated in events such as 5 vs 5 basketball, 6 vs 6 volleyball, Tug-of-War, Cornhole, and even an obstacle course. It was an excellent opportunity for the students to immerse themselves in the community and rub elbows with their client and other young professionals, while working hands-on in their practicum course.  And they even got to have a little fun while doing so!
