In this week’s edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we welcome Assistant Professor of Humanities Jared Rife and Alumni Engagement Director Sarah Blumenschein.
In our conversations with Rife, the main focus is the upcoming Humanities Film Series, in which he will present Jaws. This event takes place on Jan. 26 at 6:30 p.m. in the Capital BlueCross Theatre on the Summerdale campus of Central Penn College.
The Humanities Film Series is a collaborative effort between Rife, Brant Ellsworth, and other members of the department. The goal is to have an open discourse about films that were important in the lives of the individual faculty members.
During the show, Rife discusses his own journey with film in his life. He specifically discusses influences from his mother, a short film that moved him called The Red Balloon, and his affinity for Steven Spielberg and his films.
Rife goes on to discuss how film can be used as a teaching tool, and how he implements using film in his classes at the college.
In our second segment of the podcast, we are joined by Sarah Blumenschein to discuss alumni events for the winter term. The podcast is also joined by former Knightly News President Sherri Long in her last episode as a student at Central Penn.
Blumenschein features two major events, the CPEC Job Fair on Feb. 20 and the Easter Bunny Breakfast on March 24.
According to the CPEC website, “The CPEC Board is comprised of representatives from sixteen south central Pennsylvania colleges and universities and nine business/corporate members.”
The job fair is one of the largest in the central Pennsylvania area and is the largest job fair affiliated with the college. For more information on this event, please contact Career Services at (800) 759-2727 or email Career Services Director Steve Hassinger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Blumenschein also takes time to discuss the Easter Bunny Breakfast, held at the Knight and Day Cafe. This annual event also occurs on the same day as East Pennsboro Township egg hunt, so attendees could make a day out of the events if they choose.
