Financial Aid and Counseling Services Discussed on Podcast Episode #42

By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-adviser

In our latest edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we are joined by Financial Aid Director Kathy Shepard and College Counselor Megan Cline.

The podcast is also joined by Knightly News Correspondent Michael Ademola.

In our time with Shepard, we discussed all things financial aid.  Specifically of importance to our students is the scholarship opportunity that comes from simply scheduling a full class load by the end of the online registration period, taking place until the end of Week 6, Nov. 19.

Students that register during this time will have the chance to win one of two $500 scholarships from the Education Foundation.

Shepard also discusses the FAFSA deadlines and promotes the upcoming FAFSA workshops, taking place the first Wednesday of each month in Summerdale and the first Thursday of each month in Lancaster.

More information can be found at their website, or by emailing financialaid@centralpenn.edu.

In the second part of the show, we welcome College Counselor Megan Cline to the program.

During the segment, we discuss the increase in mental health issues for college students, mainly dealing with the pressure to succeed in college due to financial burden.

Cline also discusses some future initiatives for the office, including KPETS Services Dogs visiting the Lancaster Center on Nov. 14 and Caring Hearts Therapy Dogs visiting the Summerdale campus on Nov. 15

More information about the Counseling Center’s services can be found here, and students seeking assistance can email Megan Cline at megancline@centralpenn.edu.
