First National Bank Brings Innovative Banking Services to
Slippery Rock University

Digital Solutions and On-Campus Presence Enhance Convenience for Students and Employees 

First National Bank, the largest subsidiary of F.N.B. Corporation (NYSE: FNB), and Slippery Rock University (SRU) announced a new agreement to bring FNB’s banking services, innovative digital technology and financial education to the SRU community.

“The banking relationship is an important step toward financial independence,” said Barry C. Robinson, Chief Consumer Banking Officer for First National Bank. “With convenient access to financial education and digital solutions that are tailored to their unique needs, we look forward to providing SRU students and employees with the right tools to build a solid financial foundation and achieve their goals.”

The new partnership is highlighted by a convenient on-campus presence, including ATMs and FNB’s SRU Digital Center, now open on the first floor of the Robert M. Smith Student Center. Designed as an interactive space where students, faculty and staff can use FNB technology or meet with local FNB representatives without leaving campus, the center features:

  • An eStore® kiosk where students and employees can use FNB’s proprietary digital platform to access financial education and shop for banking products and services.
  • Two Interactive Teller Machines (ITMs), where users can engage with a banking representative with live, two-way video chat technology during extended hours — seven days a week, and for 13 hours on weekdays — to fit students’ busy schedules.

The Digital Center is available during the Smith Student Center’s hours of operation. Students and employees can use online or mobile eStore technology to schedule appointments with FNB bankers.

As part of the relationship, FNB also has introduced FNB-U Student Checking at SRU, a specialized checking package for SRU students. Along with the proven FNB-U account, which prioritizes digital banking and cost-effective features students most need, FNB-U Student Checking at SRU provides an opportunity to demonstrate school pride with SRU-branded FNB Visa debit cards. In addition, FNB will provide discounted services for faculty and staff via Workplace Banking Solutions.

“We strive to provide a comprehensive learning experience so that our students are prepared to succeed professionally and personally, and finances are key to that success,” said Christopher Cole, SRU Director of Auxiliary Operations and Student Services. “Our partnership with FNB enables us to deliver digital banking technology, educational resources and expert consultation directly on campus, so students and employees can get the support they need at a time and place that works for them.”

SRU students and employees also benefit from FNB’s leading online and mobile banking capabilities and expansive physical network. An award-winning mobile banking experience, convenient branches and more than 900 ATMs spanning seven states and Washington, D.C., ensure that SRU students and employees have convenient access to banking services whether they are at school, home or on the go.

The university banking partnership builds on FNB’s existing relationship with SRU, including the FNB Academic Scholars Program, which annually supports 18 SRU first-year students. In 2019, FNB donated real estate to the SRU Foundation, Inc., that will be used by SRU to further develop academic facilities. In recognition of the gift, SRU’s career center has been renamed the F.N.B. Office of Career Education and Development.
