The First-Year Experience students of Marc E. Bridgens, Penn College’s dean of construction and design technologies, were selected as the fall semester’s most engaging class during Dana R. Suter’s financial-literacy presentations. Suter, coordinator of part-time student employment and career programming, conducts the sessions with FYE classes throughout the academic year, reviewing such integral topics as budgeting, responsible use of credit, loan repayment, identity theft, and checking and savings accounts. Suter challenges students to participate as she poses questions relating to financial health, with a goal of teaching them how to reduce their overall debt by making smart choices now – and after graduation. Bridgens’ students were treated to a pizza party, courtesy of Suter (who also provided the photographs at left), in honor of their overall responsiveness. Second place went to the class of Brian M. Johnson, director of residence life/judicial affairs; the students of Sung H. Choi, assistant professor of graphic design, finished third.
