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.

Student Activities Director Outlines Events at Central Penn College for the Summer Term

Being involved directly influences college success

By Paul Miller, co-adviser to the Knightly News

The Knightly News Media Club at Central Penn College is proud to have Student Activites Director Adrienne Thoman on their most recent podcast.

Joined by student reporter Lawrence Wilson and hosted by Professor Miller, Thoman discussed several important events at the Central Penn. This included many of the upcoming Common Hour series, events that should be attended by our new, incoming freshman, and a recurring segment on the podcast, the “Featured Three” events of the month.

“Really, college is about hearing different viewpoints and perspectives,” Thoman explained.  “If you want to hear people who think the same as you do, you can stay at home and look in the mirror.”

Thoman went on to discuss the almost necessity of getting involved in campus life as a way to enhance your resume, to find new friends, and to bring important skills to your future career.

The podcast also outlined the “Featured Three” events for July.  These events  are:  The Flick and Float (featuring Jaws) on Saturday, July 9 at 7 p.m. at the pool, former “America’s Got Talent” star Kenneth Xclusive Paryo, Thursday, July 14 at 7 p.m. in the Capital Blue Cross Theatre, and the Central Penn Players first musical “First Date”, premiering on Thursday, July 28 for a two-week run.
