"This is a
significant corporate sponsorship from an outstanding, innovative
company," said Donald Weinbach, vice president for development and
alumni affairs at Quinnipiac. "We seek to associate with quality
brands, and in the world of network and IT solutions, High Point is
known for delivering quality products and superb service."
The ice hockey arena on Quinnipiac's York Hill Campus, home to the men's and women's NCAA Division I ice hockey teams, will be known as the High Point Solutions Arena.
"We are proud to provide this level of support to Quinnipiac University," said Tom Mendiburu, who along with his brother, Mike, founded High Point Solutions in 1996. "Helping a thriving university like Quinnipiac continue its unparalleled ascent, while linking our name to such a state-of-the-art ice hockey facility is truly a win-win for both of our organizations. We are excited about this corporate partnership and want to thank President John L. Lahey and the Board of Trustees for this opportunity."
Quinnipiac Director of Athletics Jack McDonald said that, along with TD Bank, High Point Solutions will enhance what is already a great fan-friendly hockey arena and one of the best facilities in all of intercollegiate athletics.
"Having this level of commitment from Tom and Mike Mendiburu speaks volumes about what our teams and coaches have been able to accomplish at the Division I level," McDonald said. "This year our women had the most successful year in the program's history, and the men had a great run in the recent ECAC playoffs. I am looking forward to even more success in the High Point Solutions Arena."
