The Knightly News Media Club welcomes Student Activities Director Adrienne Thoman to their tenth podcast episode to highlight student activities at Central Penn College.

Thoman elaborates on several August happenings with host Prof. Paul Miller, co-adviser of Knightly News Media Club, and Sherri Long, student reporter.

Events included in the podcast are:  Fall course registration workshops, Fall Campus Preview day, the Knightly News summer cookout, “First Date” musical performance, and, of course, Thoman’s “Featured Three Events”.

Miller highlighted the Aug. 11 summer cookout, hosted by the Knightly News Media Club, which is a fundraiser for the club to offset costs for the purchase and setup of their new podcasting equipment, purchased in June.

Thoman, Miller and Long talk about ways in which all students, including online and evening students, can participate in the student activities, sometimes, including their families.

“There are several time options, including day, late afternoon, evening and weekend activity options that evening and online students could participate in, sometimes with family,” states Long.

Long is an online and evening student. She is also a single mom of two teenagers and works full-time as a freelance graphic designer.

Thoman recommends to contact her directly to find out the best ways to meet with a Central Penn group outing if a student does not take the shuttle from campus.

Thoman’s Featured Three Events for August are: “First Date” musical in the Capital BlueCross Theatre, final weekend of Aug. 5, 6 and 7; Central Penn’s first Mini Thon Friday, Aug. 12 at 6 p.m. through 6 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13; and Dino-Mite Scavenger Hunt and Ice Cream on Monday, Aug. 15.

As always, stay connected with the student activities on campus with their Facebook page:  https://www.facebook.com/CentralPennActivities/  and be sure to check back for next month’s podcast featuring September’s activities.
