Lock Haven University’s Fall Convocation kicks-off 2014 academic year

Lock Haven University’s Fall Convocation is an annual event that benchmarks the beginning of each new school year. On Wednesday faculty, staff, and students gathered at the university’s Price Auditorium for the ceremony.

Perhaps the brightest highlight of Convocation was when guest speaker and Lock Haven University alumna, Keith Betts took the stage. Betts, who graduated from the university in 1965, used a plethora of personality and wit to tell his story of being a new student in Lock Haven. Betts is originally from England, and paralleled his message to first-year students with his love of American football.

As Betts wrapped-up his address to the audience, he decided to share a bit of his English culture with those in attendance by giving “three cheers for Lock Haven University.” He led the charge by yelling “hip-hip” and the audience answered with “hooray” each time.

Awards were also given to administration, faculty, and staff for their respective achievements in the field. One of the award-winners was Dr. David Curtin, who was presented the University Award for Outstanding Scholarship award.

After the ceremony ended, students, faculty, and staff were invited to socialize and enjoy refreshments with one another in front of the auditorium.

“Snakes on a Plane II: Snakes at the Sieg”


A great example of how easy Pennsylvania snakes are to miss, there are five copperhead snakes in this picture. Can you find them?

First it was Snakes on a Plane now the slithery reptiles are taking over the Sieg in Lamar, Pennsylvania. An e-mail sent out by Lock Haven University’s Facilities Planning and Scheduling Coordinator, Marchal Rote, stated that a faculty member of the university had observed both copperhead snakes and rattlesnakes around certain areas of the Sieg, a location used by the university for team building exercises amongst its faculty, staff, and sometimes students.

Dr. Barry Overton reported snake sightings near the Sieg’s kitchen door; the fire pit; and on the wood, leaves and other debris piles near the bridge. These locations will be frequented by those faculty and staff attending the meeting at the Sieg.

Rote deduced in her e-mail that because of the cooling temperatures in the central Pennsylvania area that the snakes may be coming out to sun themselves out in the open.

Anyone that had planned on attending the meeting this weekend at the Sieg is advised to use extreme caution when navigating throughout the area.

#SuperSenior Status

I attend the Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania and was originally slated to graduate tomorrow. However, there will be no graduation for me as a combination of my irresponsible decisions when scheduling/adding/dropping classes as an underclassmen and being given meaningless classes as a freshman have created a credit-deficiency towards my degree. Therefore, I will be returning to school in the fall of 2014  to complete my bachelor’s in communication.
