Fiascone '85 believes in building for the future.
As Vice President of Inland Real Estate Development Corporation,
a land development company, Matt acquires, develops and
sells projects in Chicagoland for Inland. Matt has taken
his expertise and focused it on building an endowed scholarship
fund for Bradley.
While on campus from 1981-1985, Matt served
his fraternity, Delta Upsilon, as the treasurer and the
rush chair and served the University as a member of SABRC.
As Matt reflected on his Bradley career, he appreciates
the personal attention he received as an economics major.
"I was lucky to have Kal Goldberg as my advisor."
Kal and the other economics professors "gave me as
much personal attention as I sought out." In addition
to his academic life Matt values his Delta Upsilon experience.
"Greek life played an important part in learning vital
lifelong lessons. We learned about the benefits of volunteering,
the benefits of working together as a group, and a variety
of leadership skills."
The idea of establishing an endowed scholarship
fund for Delta Upsilon students began with Matt's friend
and fellow fraternity brother Ray Zarvell '62. Matt has
supported many Bradley programs including the economics
department, the Foster College of Business, and the Bradley
Fund. However, when he learned about the opportunity to
support his fraternity and his alma mater with one gift,
Matt wholeheartedly began supporting the Delta Upsilon Endowed
Scholarship fund. Besides his own gifts, Matt wrote his
fraternity brothers encouraging them to join him in supporting
this scholarship opportunity. That fund is in the building
process and all expectations are for the first scholarship
to be awarded the 2000/2001 academic year.
Matt currently resides in Hinsdale, IL with
his wife Karen and two children, Austin and Regan.
Since his freshman year, Matt has continued
to be an asset to Bradley and to Delta Upsilon. Our thanks
go to Matt for assisting Bradley in its mission to provide
each student with a foundation for lifelong learning.
