Dan DiZio ‘95 will be the keynote speaker for East Stroudsburg University of Pennsylvania’s winter commencement ceremony on Saturday, December 14, at 9:45 a.m. in Koehler Fieldhouse. DiZio is the CEO and Co-founder of the Philly Pretzel Factory.
DiZio’s entrepreneurial spirit started at the young age of 11 thanks to a neighbor who owned a bakery in a small town outside of Philadelphia. He would sell the bakery’s pretzels on a street corner in Philadelphia and his neighbor would split the sales for the day. DiZio set up shop every day after school, on weekends, and throughout the summer. Read the full DiZio story by clicking here.

The East Stroudsburg University sports information department unveiled the redesigned ESUWarriors.com on Wednesday, debuting a new look and updated features for the official athletics website of ESU.
The redesign, which debuted Wednesday afternoon, was revamped in a collaborative effort with college athletics website provider SIDEARM Sports and the ESU sports information office. The new-look home for ESU’s 22 varsity athletics programs features a modern design, easier navigation, and integration with Warriors athletics social media platforms.
Additionally, the new layout now boasts a responsive layout that will automatically adapt to a user’s custom screen resolution and browser settings, as well as mobile devices and tablets.
“We look forward to growing our partnership with SIDEARM sports for this upcoming athletic year and beyond as we continue to enhance and grow East Stroudsburg University’s presence online,” said Doug Page, ESU Assistant Sports Information Director. “SIDEARM has been awesome to work with throughout this entire process and we look forward to continuing to provide an outlet for our student-athletes, fans, and supporters who follow Warrior athletics to stay up-to-date.”
Among the improvements, visitors will now have quicker access to schedules and rosters, a more comprehensive all-sports calendar, and a static ticker that scrolls through recent scores and upcoming games. Other improvements include easier access to photo galleries and video highlights as well as fan zone content.
The Spring/Summer 2019 issue of the Alumni Herald connects you with Dr. Deborah Gebhardt ’69, a Warrior whose professional and personal journey has been far from ordinary. She’s a scientist focused on issues related to health, fitness and workplace safety, an entrepreneur, accomplished educator as well as coach who has led women’s collegiate teams to the playoffs. This year, she returns to ESU as part of the Class of 1969 reunion celebration.
