By Paul Miller

Knightly News Co-Adviser

On this edition of the Knightly News Podcast, we are proud to feature Interim Co-President and Provost Dr. Linda Fedrizzi-Williams to discuss her time at Central Penn College and answer questions from Knightly News reporters.

During the episode, Fedrizzi-Williams talks about her rise in academia over the years, what Central Penn means to her, and some important initiatives that her team is currently working on.

“There’s been a lot happening.”  Fedrizzi-Williams said.  “One of the biggest things I noticed when I came (to Central Penn College) was that we needed additional support for our students and faculty.”

Fedrizzi-Williams discussed the expansion of the Learning Center and the Center for Teaching Excellence during her time here, as well as additional initiatives currently in the works.

During the second segment of the episode, we are joined by Knightly News President Brian Christiana and Reporter Michael Ademola for a Q & A session with Fedrizzi-Williams.

At a recent Knightly News Media Club meeting, Christiana tasked the club to come up with questions for the interview.  The group came up with many solid questions that were posed on the podcast, with frank and honest answers from the co-president.

The group was mainly interested in increasing student engagement in sporting events, how social media has changed the job search, and how communication factors in to career success.

The Knightly News Media Club would sincerely like to thank our fans on this momentous occasion and hope to continue delivering high quality audio, video, and written work for you to enjoy.

A Day in New York City

Students visit United Nations, seek their own adventures

By Brian Christiana and Paul Jones

Knightly News Reporters

On Nov. 3, Central Penn Chief Diversity Officer Romeo Azondekon took several students to New York City for a visit to the United Nations.

The students traveled around the city and had to interview another person of a different culture or ethnicity.

“It was a very cool and an eye-opening experience. I had an opportunity to go into the United Nations, where many people don’t get to go,” said corporate communications major Michael Ademola.

The students were from the Student Multicultural Advisory Board, and Hispanic American Student Association.

Corporate communications major Morgan Littleford said, “I was happy to learn about all the different things about the United Nations and all the different cultures that are involved.”

The students went to different stores, such as the clothing outlets H&M, Forever 21 and other clothing stores.

The entertainment from street performers really helped brighten the mood. Littleford said that she really enjoyed them, and they made her laugh.

For information about these type of trips, contact Azondekon at romeoazondekon@centralpenn.edu or (717) 728-2437.

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.
