Business in brief: IUP business college saluted by vets’ group

INDIANA — Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Eberly College of Business and Information Technology has been selected by Military Times as a “Best for Vets” Business School.

IUP was ranked 20th out of 100 schools in the survey and was given four out of four stars for academic support.

Military Times is an international publication for members of the military.

“The Eberly College of Business and Information Technology is very proud to welcome our veterans into our college, and we will continue to support them in every way possible,” said Robert Camp, dean of the college.

In 2012, Military Times editors selected IUP as one of the nation’s “Best for Vets” universities. IUP also was selected as a participant in the 2012-13 Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program, designed to help veterans to pay for their college education.

Student chosen for intern program

Former Johnstown resident Paige Minemyer, a journalism student at Penn State, has been selected for the Dow Jones New Fund Editing Intern Program this summer.

She was chosen from hundreds of applicants nationwide and will be working at the Roanoke Times in Roanoke, Va.

Students selected for the program attend eight-day training programs on college campuses before completing paid internships for a minimum of 10 weeks. At the end of the full program, interns who return to college as full-time students the following fall receive scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $1,800 from Dow Jones News Fund.

Students qualify for consideration for the internships by scoring high on a standard editing test designed by the Dow Jones News Fund staff.

Final selections were made by directors of the training program based on the test, reference checks, an essay and the student’s academic record.

Minemyer, who works on the copy desk at The Daily Collegian, has completed internships at The Tribune-Democrat and The Patriot-News.
