HRT - Hormone Replacement Therapy in Oradell, NJ

Let's Talk!

HORMONE REPLACEMENT THERAPY for Women estrogen
 HRT For Men Oradell, NJ

What Causes Menopause?

The most common reason for menopause is the natural decline in a female's reproductive hormones. However, menopause can also result from the following situations:

Oophorectomy: This surgery, which removes a woman's ovaries, causes immediate menopause. Symptoms and signs of menopause in this situation can be severe, as the hormonal changes happen abruptly.

Chemotherapy: Cancer treatments like chemotherapy can induce menopause quickly, causing symptoms to appear shortly after or even during treatment.

Ovarian Insufficiency: Also called premature ovarian failure, this condition is essentially premature menopause. It happens when a woman's ovaries quit functioning before the age of 40 and can stem from genetic factors and disease. Only 1% of women suffer from premature menopause, but HRT can help protect the heart, brain, and bones.

Depression

If you're a woman going through menopause and find that you have become increasingly depressed, you're not alone. It's estimated that 15% of women experience depression to some degree while going through menopause. What many women don't know is that depression can start during perimenopause, or the years leading up to menopause.

Depression can be hard to diagnose, especially during perimenopause and menopause. However, if you notice the following signs, it might be time to speak with a physician:

  • Mood Swings
  • Inappropriate Guilt
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Too Much or Too Little Sleep
  • Lack of Interest in Life
  • Overwhelming Feelings

Remember, if you're experiencing depression, you're not weak or broken - you're going through a very regular emotional experience. The good news is that with proper treatment from your doctor, depression isn't a death sentence. And with HRT and anti-aging treatment for women, depression could be the catalyst you need to enjoy a new lease on life.

Hot Flashes

Hot flashes - they're one of the most well-known symptoms of menopause. Hot flashes are intense, sudden feelings of heat across a woman's upper body. Some last second, while others last minutes, making them incredibly inconvenient and uncomfortable for most women.

Symptoms of hot flashes include:

  • Sudden, Overwhelming Feeling of Heat
  • Anxiety
  • High Heart Rate
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness

Typically, hot flashes are caused by a lack of estrogen. Low estrogen levels negatively affect a woman's hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls body temperature and appetite. Low estrogen levels cause the hypothalamus to incorrectly assume the body is too hot, dilating blood vessels to increase blood flow. Luckily, most women don't have to settle for the uncomfortable feelings that hot flashes cause. HRT treatments for women often stabilize hormones, lessening the effects of hot flashes and menopause in general.

Mood Swings

Mood swings are common occurrences for most people - quick shifts from happy to angry and back again, triggered by a specific event. And while many people experience mood swings, they are particularly common for women going through menopause. That's because, during menopause, the female's hormones are often imbalanced. Hormone imbalances and mood swings go hand-in-hand, resulting in frequent mood changes and even symptoms like insomnia.

The rate of production of estrogen, a hormone that fluctuates during menopause, largely determines the rate of production the hormone serotonin, which regulates mood, causing mood swings.

Luckily, HRT and anti-aging treatments in Oradell, NJ for women work wonders for mood swings by regulating hormone levels like estrogen. With normal hormone levels, women around the world are now learning that they don't have to settle for mood swings during menopause.

Weight Gain

Staying fit and healthy is hard for anyone living in modern America. However, for women with hormone imbalances during perimenopause or menopause, weight gain is even more serious. Luckily, HRT treatments for women coupled with a physician-led diet can help keep weight in check. But which hormones need to be regulated?

  • Estrogen: During menopause, estrogen levels are depleted. As such, the body must search for other sources of estrogen. Because estrogen is stored in fat, your body believes it should increase fat production during menopause. Estrogen also plays a big part in insulin resistance, which can make it even harder to lose weight and keep it off.
  • Progesterone: Progesterone levels are also depleted during menopause. Progesterone depletion causes bloating and water retention, while loss of testosterone limits the body's ability to burn calories.
  • Ongoing Stress: Stress makes our bodies think that food is hard to come by, putting our bodies in "survival mode". When this happens, cortisol production is altered. When cortisol timing changes, the energy in the bloodstream is diverted toward making fat. With chronic stress, this process repeatedly happens, causing extensive weight gain during menopause.

Low Libido

Lowered sexual desire - three words most men and women hate to hear. Unfortunately, for many women in perimenopausal and menopausal states, it's just a reality of life. Thankfully, today, HRT and anti-aging treatments Oradell, NJ can help women maintain a normal, healthy sex drive. But what causes low libido in women, especially as they get older?

The hormones responsible for low libido in women are progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.

Progesterone production decreases during perimenopause, causing low sex drive in women. Lower progesterone production can also cause chronic fatigue, weight gain, and other symptoms. On the other hand, lower estrogen levels during menopause lead to vaginal dryness and even vaginal atrophy or loss of muscle tension.

Lastly, testosterone plays a role in lowered libido. And while testosterone is often grouped as a male hormone, it contributes to important health and regulatory functionality in women. A woman's testosterone serves to heighten sexual responses and enhances orgasms. When the ovaries are unable to produce sufficient levels of testosterone, it often results in a lowered sex drive.

 Hormone Replacement Oradell, NJ

Vaginal Dryness

Often uncomfortable and even painful, vaginal dryness is a serious problem for sexually active women. However, like hair loss in males, vaginal dryness is very common - almost 50% of women suffer from it during menopause.

Getting older is just a part of life, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for the side effects. HRT and anti-aging treatments for women correct vaginal dryness by re-balancing estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. When supplemented with diet and healthy living, your vagina's secretions are normalized, causing discomfort to recede.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Oradell, NJ

Fibroids

Uterine fibroids - they're perhaps the least-known symptom of menopause and hormone imbalances in women. That's because these growths on the uterus are often symptom-free. Unfortunately, these growths can be cancerous, presenting a danger for women as they age.

Many women will have fibroids at some point. Because they're symptomless, they're usually found during routine doctor exams. Some women only get one or two, while others may have large clusters of fibroids. Because fibroids are usually caused by hormone imbalances, hysterectomies have been used as a solution, forcing women into early menopause.

Advances in HRT and anti-aging medicine for women give females a safer, non-surgical option without having to experience menopause early. At Global Life Rejuvenation, our expert physicians will implement a customized HRT program to stabilize your hormones and reduce the risk of cancerous fibroid growth.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS, and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Endometriosis symptoms are much like the effects of PMS and include pelvic pain, fatigue, cramping, and bloating. While doctors aren't entirely sure what causes this painful, uncomfortable condition, most agree that hormones - particularly xenoestrogens - play a factor.

Xenoestrogen is a hormone that is very similar to estrogen. Too much xenoestrogen is thought to stimulate endometrial tissue growth. HRT for women helps balance these hormones and, when used with a custom nutrition program, can provide relief for women across the U.S.

 Sermorelin Oradell, NJ

What is Sermorelin?

Sermorelin is a synthetic hormone peptide, like GHRH, which triggers the release of growth hormones. When used under the care of a qualified physician, Sermorelin can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, and help you feel much younger.

 HRT Oradell, NJ

Benefits of Sermorelin

Human growth hormone (HGH) therapy has been used for years to treat hormone deficiencies. Unlike HGH, which directly replaces declining human growth hormone levels, Sermorelin addresses the underlying cause of decreased HGH, stimulating the pituitary gland naturally. This approach keeps the mechanisms of growth hormone production active.

  • Benefits of Sermorelin include:
  • Better Immune Function
  • Improved Physical Performance
  • More Growth Hormone Production
  • Less Body Fat
  • Build More Lean Muscle
  • Better Sleep
 Hormone Replacement Oradell, NJ

What is Ipamorelin?

Ipamorelin helps to release growth hormones in a person's body by mimicking a peptide called ghrelin. Ghrelin is one of three hormones which work together to regulate the growth hormone levels released by the pituitary gland. Because Ipamorelin stimulates the body to produce growth hormone, your body won't stop its natural growth hormone production, which occurs with synthetic HGH.

Ipamorelin causes growth hormone secretion that resembles natural release patterns rather than being constantly elevated from HGH. Because ipamorelin stimulates the natural production of growth hormone, our patients can use this treatment long-term with fewer health risks.

Hormone Replacement Therapy Oradell, NJ

Benefits of Ipamorelin

One of the biggest benefits of Ipamorelin is that it provides significant short and long-term benefits in age management therapies. Ipamorelin can boost a patient's overall health, wellbeing, and outlook on life.

When there is an increased concentration of growth hormone by the pituitary gland, there are positive benefits to the body. Some benefits include:

  • Powerful Anti-Aging Properties
  • More Muscle Mass
  • Less Unsightly Body Fat
  • Deep, Restful Sleep
  • Increased Athletic Performance
  • More Energy
  • Less Recovery Time for Training Sessions and Injuries
  • Enhanced Overall Wellness and Health
  • No Significant Increase in Cortisol

Have you noticed that when Giants coach Brian Daboll isn’t scolding players, he’s usually wearing a smirk on the sideline? Doesn’t matter the score or the situation.

It’s the confident look of a guy who knows more than he’s letting on, and it’s become sort of a security blanket for anxious Giants fans as they watch nearly every game come down to a deciding play in the final minutes.

Well, the guy obviously knows something, because he has the Giants at 7-2 and positioned for the franchise’s first playoff berth since Bill Parcells was a paperboy in Oradell.

(OK, that’s not right, but you get the idea: It’s been a while.)

According to the New York Times super-duper playoff computer, the Giants have an 84% shot to make the postseason and a 16% chance at winning the NFC East.

No wonder Daboll is smirking.

But you can wear that smirk, too!

Simply enter NJ.com’s Giants Prop Bet Showdown, pick the most correct answers to our Week 11 prop bets for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions and we’ll put a $50 gift card in your pocket.

You can tell your friends that you won, or keep it on the down low and wear that glorious Daboll Smirk for a week.

Here’s how the contest works: Each week there will be 10 prop questions revolving around the Giants game. The contestant who answers the most questions correctly each week will win a $50 gift card.

For instance, here’s a sampling from this week’s contest:

— Will the Giants cover the 4.5-point spread?

— Will the total points scored be more than 45.5, or fewer?

— Will the Giants have 7 or fewer players catch a pass?

— Will Kenny Golladay pull his other hamstring getting off a couch or a recliner?

(We made that last one up, too!)

(ORADELL, NJ) -- Bergen County Players (BCP), one of America’s foremost little theater groups, continues its 90th season with the return of a treasured holiday season tradition: the annual BCP family show: The Story of Velveteen Rabbit, a musical based on the classic book by Margery Williams, plays December 3-18 at the Little Firehouse Theatre, 298 Kinderkamack Road in Oradell.

Adapted by playwright Anita Larsen and composer/lyricist Bill Francoeur from Williams’ book, The Story of Velveteen Rabbit runs approximately 70 minutes. Direction is by Bunny Mateosian with musical direction by Steve Bell and choreography by Diana Baer. Audience members will have the opportunity to meet the cast and get autographs following each performance.

When a stuffed velveteen rabbit arrives in a little girl’s nursery, all the toys snub her except for the wise old skin horse, who explains how toys can become real through a child’s love. After the girl’s china dog goes missing, the rabbit finds herself in the girl’s arms, and eventually, in her heart. Will the velveteen rabbit become real? Audiences will find out in The Story of Velveteen Rabbit, a delightful musical for the whole family about the transformative power of love.

The classic book The Velveteen Rabbit has delighted generations of children and adults alike, and has remained in print since its publication in 1922. BCP is proud to celebrate the book’s centennial as Margery Williams’ immortal story leaps from the page to the Little Firehouse Theatre stage, which transforms into an enchanting nursery full of toys and a forest where wild rabbits hop and cavort with dancing trees and a magical fairy.

Director Bunny Mateosian, who hails from Closter, says of her choice to helm the show, “Our theater, our patrons, and our country have been through some very difficult years with COVID-19 and related health issues. I wanted to do something different than the usual ‘fairy tale’ production this year, and I searched for a musical version of The Velveteen Rabbit.” Mateosian continues, “I was so excited to find this joyful, heart-warming, delightful version of the book, which can be enjoyed by all generations. I hope that audiences will find the magic of this story charming and memorable.”

The talented cast of The Story of Velveteen Rabbit includes a mix of familiar faces and newcomers to BCP. The title character is played by Marisa Dolkart Herling of Teaneck, with Reginald Bennett Jr. of Teaneck as her stalwart friend, the Skin Horse, and Ava Dina Stampone of Ridgewood as Andrea, the little girl whose love turns the velveteen rabbit real. The main nursery toys are portrayed by Yaritza Camarano of New Milford as the Model Boat, Heather Corzine of Ringwood as the Train Engine, and Julia Morriss of Allendale as Timothy Lion.

Grace M. Callahan of Oradell appears as the Nursery Magic Fairy, with Debbie Buchsbaum of River Vale as Nana, Nicole Henry of Ridgewood as Mother, and Michael Del Valle of New Milford as Uncle Brad. Rounding out the cast are Mohammad Abulaimon of Paramus, Lucienda Camarano of New Milford, Patrick Dwyer of Ridgewood, Catherine Gallagher of Bergenfield, Rob Kopil of Suffern, New York, Giuliana Stampone of Ridgewood, and Larry Wilbur of Mahwah.

The production team is comprised of Bunny Mateosian (Director), Diana Baer (Choreographer), Steve Bell (Musical Director), Michele Roth (Producer), Katie Lupfer (Assistant to the Director), Geri Berhain (Stage Manager), Laura Dinoia (Properties), Michael Smith (Set Design), Lauren Zenreich (Set Décor), Lynne Lupfer and Terri Caust (Costumes), Alan Seward (Lighting Design), Sandra Conklin (Lighting Operator), Jim Lupfer (Sound Design), Barry Reed (Sound Operator), Karen Markle (crew), Jill Hendrickson (dresser), and Alan Zenreich (Photography).

The Adelphi Orchestra Partners with Ballet Arts for "The Nutcracker"

(ORADELL, NJ) -- This year, Ballet Arts' annual performance of The Nutcracker comes with an early holiday gift – live orchestral music. Ballet Arts, a premiere dance school serving the New York and New Jersey area, is partnering with Adelphi Orchestra for its first-ever ballet with concert musicians. The ballet will be held at River Dell Senior High School (RDHS) on Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th.

"A live orchestra is a wonderful learning experience for the dancers and a real pleasure for the audience. When you hear Tchaikovsky's music, you can see and feel what is happening and a live orchestra takes the experience to a whole new level," shared Jane Silane and Marilyn Westlake-Nichols, co-directors of Ballet Arts.

A beloved holiday ballet, The Nutcracker, tells the magical tale of a young girl named Clara whose nutcracker doll turns into a prince on Christmas Eve to battle against a fierce Mouse Queen. As a reward for their bravery, the prince invites Clara and her brother Franz to the Kingdom of Sweets where they are treated to dancing delights. Elijah Geolina will play the role of the Prince. Currently, Elijah is training at the prestigious American Ballet Theatre Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School in the pre-professional program under the direction of Acting Artistic Director Stella Abrera. Elijah has been dancing since he was 8 years old and has been on television shows, including So You Think You Can Dance and Little Big Shots.

Anna Sears, a River Dell High School senior, will be dancing the role of Snow Queen and Coffee, while Naomi Roth, also of River Dell High School, will be dancing as the Sugar Plum Fairy. Saturday evening’s performance will premiere Trixie Lurato of New City, NY as Clara, and Stella Hwang of Oradell, NJ as Franz. Margaret Hahn and Sabrina Klein, both of Oradell, will be playing Clara and Franz, respectively, at the Sunday performance. Amy Brandt, a faculty member at Ballet Arts who danced professionally with the Suzanne Farrell Ballet and Milwaukee Ballet and is currently editor in chief of “Pointe” magazine, will be among the many adults dancing in the party scene. All performers wear beautiful handmade costumes, sewn, maintained, and altered by Gisele Ferrari-Wong of Westwood, Lynn Mitchell of Ridgefield Park, and dedicated parent volunteers and adult students.

The Nutcracker runs Saturday, December 10 at 7:00pm and Sunday, December 11 at 2:00pm. Performances take place at River Dell High School, 55 Pyle Street, Oradell, NJ. Tickets may be purchased on-line at www.BalletArtsNJ.com. For more information call 201-970-7690. Sponsorship opportunities and fundraisers for the live orchestra are available here.

The Ballet Arts School opened its doors in the summer of 1976 by Diana Turner Hauser (Madame). Starting with summer classes, Madame developed Ballet Arts into a highly regarded school with a reputation for excellence in the teaching of classical ballet. The school quickly developed to incorporate the Ballet Arts Company. Their first ballet was La Boutique Fantasque in 1977. Since then, their repertoire has expanded to include The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, Don Quixote, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, and Etudes. Performing all over the Bergen County area, the Ballet Arts Company is comprised not only of students, but also adult performers and professionals who all share their love of performing.

What started as a small ballet school has now developed into a special haven for all those who love dance. The core focus at Ballet Arts is on technique and stage productions, as well as instilling a sense of greater creativity, discipline, self-awareness, confidence, grace and fitness. Their mission is to create a safe and nurturing environment where in students of all ages and abilities may study the performing arts with enjoyment through various degrees of performance opportunities.

Adelphi Orchestra is a professional, non-profit orchestra performing symphonic, chamber, operatic, and dance concerts. It is northern New Jersey's longest continuously performing group. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Ballet Arts and RDHS Dancing to live music, rather than a recording, is an educational experience for everyone, not just the dancers, but also the student musicians who will be playing," says Sylvia Rubin, president of Adelphi Orchestra. Scott Jackson Wiley, who has nearly 30 years of experience, will be conducting the 38 musicians in the ensemble. Three high school students from area schools will have the opportunity to play with the professional musicians. RDHS l students trained in the areas of lights, sound, and crew will help stage the production.

ORADELL – Bergen Catholic took a humongous step toward raising its chances of repeating as a state football champion.

The Crusaders defeated St. Peter’ Prep, 42-27, Saturday afternoon and that dramatically increases their chances of securing home-field advantage against their Hudson County rivals should they face the Marauders again in next month’s Non-Public A semifinals.

“It’s all we talked about all week,” Bergen Catholic coach Vito Campanile said. “We know this game’s going to happen again in four weeks.”

Sophomore receiver Quincy Porter made all three of his receptions count. He scored touchdowns on first-half catches of 51, 24 and 62 yards to help stake Bergen Catholic (7-1) to a 35-21 halftime lead in this Super Football Conference United Red Division showdown.

“I was pretty open on all of them, but I made the catches,” said the 6-foot-4 Porter, a New Milford resident.

Sophomore Dominic Campanile, the coach's son, ran for a 35-yard TD with 9:39 left in the fourth to provide a 42-21 lead, and it came one play after senior Joseph Barry made the first of his two interceptions.

Senior DJ Samuels ran for a 3-yard TD run in the second quarter to provide the Crusaders with a 35-21 lead, and the All-State defensive lineman also blocked two extra points before leaving late in the fourth with a sprained ankle.

Crusaders senior Saeed St. Fleur was a workhorse and carried 23 times for 150 yards, and his 20-yard TD run in the first quarter tied the score, 7-7.

St. Peter’s senior Champ Long, arguably New Jersey’s top quarterback, came out strong and threw four TD passes, with two apiece to senior Zion Fowler and junior Kenyon Massey.

“When the offense was struggling, the defense stepped it up, and vice versa,” Barry said. “I thought we did a lot of good things, but there are things we need to work on during the week.”

What it means

A committee will seed the Non-Public A playoffs and Bergen Catholic’s win, combined with a win next weekend over Paramus Catholic, should guarantee no worse than a No. 2 seed, behind Don Bosco.

“We want to play it here,” Vito Campanile said of a projected semifinal against St. Peter’s Prep. “You’d have to kind of be out of your mind not to say it will be here now, right? I would hope, if we take care of business next week, and everything happens the way it should.”

St. Peter’s Prep (5-3) can make the case for the No. 3 seed based on wins over St. Joseph (Montvale) and Delbarton. The Marauders need a win next weekend against visiting Seton Hall Prep (4-4).

For now, Bergen Catholic will climb past St. Peter's Prep when the next USA TODAY NETWORK New Jersey Top 25 rankings are released Tuesday. Bergen Catholic should climb from No. 3 to No. 2, while St. Peter's Prep will fall from No. 2.

Key sequence

There were so many pivotal sequences, but Barry’s interception on a second-and-8 at the 48-yard line, followed by Campanile’s 35-yard TD run up the left sideline, provided the 42-21 lead and all but sealed the win. Campanile barely stayed in bounds as he raced up the sideline.

“To have him run the ladder like that, he tight-roped it for about 20 yards there – that was a big-time play,” Vito Campanile said of his son’s TD run. “Joe had two picks today, and he had a hell of a week. He just committed to Yale and he had two picks. That [TD] was the breathing room.”

By the numbers

Bergen Catholic totaled 384 yards, featuring 204 rushing. Campanile was 5-for-6 for 101 yards and two TDs, while senior Jack Duffy was 3-for-3 for 79 yards.

St. Peter’s Prep had 492 total yards, with Long going 20-for-36 for 333 yards, four TDs and two interceptions. He threw TDs of 37 and 10 yards to Fowler and 44 and 7 yards to Massey, who had seven catches for 140 yards.

Risk factor

In a scoreless third, Bergen Catholic went for it on a fourth-and-1 on its 12-yard line and Duffy pushed forward for 2 yards and a first down. With the 35-21 lead, Campanile would have been heavily second-guessed if Duffy did not gain the first down and St. Peter's had a short field and scored.

“I thought we were going to get it," said Vito Campanile, who takes more fourth-down risks than any coach in North Jersey. "That was probably about as deep as we’ve ever done it. But I did have confidence and I did have confidence that we could keep scoring.”

They said it

“I’m really proud of the way that we responded to the game,” Vito Campanile said. “I think that we had a lot of guys contribute, a lot of guys make plays, and there were a lot of big plays in the game. I think it’s the first time that we played them where we matched the big plays. They have elite athletes, they’re a really well-coached team, and I’m really proud to get this win.”

Fast forward two classes and the Irish staff is again doing their due diligence in the school, making a hard run at 2024 defensive back Kaj Sanders.

The New Jersey standout has been a favorite of the staff for some time now. Dating back to the spring, Notre Dame has maintained consistent communication with Sanders.

This will be Sanders first return to South Bend since April 9. It promises to be an excited weekend, continuing to build off of the relationship that the staff has continued to build with Sanders.

"The relationship with the staff has grown a lot,” Sanders explained. "They call me about two to three times a week and they are always asking about the family or my games and school.”

Sanders is also looking forward to being reunited with Bellamy and Angeli. The Bergen Catholic brotherhood will be running strong in South Bend this weekend.

This will be Sanders’ first game day visit at Notre Dame. That atmosphere is what he is most looking forward to.

"Some things that I am looking forward to seeing this time on campus is how the campus is on game day,” he said. "Since last time I came during the preseason, it will be a different vibe.”

From a fit perspective, this relationship makes a lot of sense. Notre Dame has made it known how much they value Sanders, and the New Jersey standout has reciprocated that interest.

Sanders is not interested in rushing a decision.

"I’m most likely not going to make a decision for a school anytime soon,” he explained. "I am just trying to take my time and make a great decision.”

The Irish will be competing with some top programs for Sanders’ services. There are a flurry of schools who are making a strong pitch currently.

“Some schools that have done a great job recruiting me are Notre Dame, Penn State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Rutgers, Pittsburgh and Boston College,” Sanders said. “I’m blessed to be able to be recruited by so many great schools.”

Notre Dame has a chance to make a tremendous impact on Sanders this weekend. They have a lot of momentum, and need to continue that during this upcoming visit.

Sanders has been a difference maker on the defensive side of the football for the Crusaders. In nine games, the junior has recorded 34 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, an interception and five pass breakups. He has also made an impact on offense, although sparingly, rushing for 119 yards and two touchdowns 13 carries.

The 6-1, 180-pound defensive back is rated as a four-star recruit by On3. They have him pegged as the No. 241 overall player and the No. 22 cornerback in the 2024 recruiting class.

The New Jersey native is also collecting some impressive offers. Some of Sanders’ notable offers include the Irish, Penn State, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, Boston College, Pittsburgh, Duke, Louisville, West Virginia, Syracuse, and Rutgers among others.
