Scott College to host second annual Hullabaloo

September 28, 2012

After raising $8,000 last year, Indiana State University's Scott College of Business will host an even bigger second annual Homecoming Hullabaloo on October 5 from 7 to 11 p.m.

This event will feature an outdoor beer garden, live music outside on the Sycamore Bash stage by the full MacDaddy's band, music by guitarist Brent McPike and National Mandolin Champion Solly Burton indoors, a silent auction and the Taste of Terre Haute. The event also will feature tours of Federal Hall (30 N. 7th St.), the new home for the Scott College and where Hullabaloo will take place.

"It wasn't long ago that we dedicated our newly renovated facility," said Maria Greninger, director of external relations for the Scott College. "This will be a huge celebration commemorating our closer relationship to downtown Terre Haute and also marking new beginnings for the Scott College of Business."

Last year's silent auction raised $5,000, and a variety of unique items will be up for bid this year as well. Available items include an Indianapolis Colts weekend getaway, a family entertainment package, autographed sports memorabilia, a tailgate package, coolers, grills, golf packages, event tickets and Manchester United items. Proceeds from the event help to support student professional development and external relations activities.

"The opportunities our students gain, in part thanks to the Hullabaloo, build their experiences, resumes and networking," said Brien Smith, dean of the Scott College of Business. "We are very fortunate to have strong community support to help make this event happen."

Tickets for the Hullabaloo are $25 for general admission and $15 for ISU students (must have valid ID to enter beer garden). Tickets may be purchased tby calling the Scott College dean's office at 812-237-2000, or at the gate the night of the event.
