Video Showcases Hospitality Grad, on the Ride of His Life

Planning a family trip to the amusement park during these dog days of summer? A timely addition to Penn College’s YouTube channel spotlights alumnus Brian Knoebel, who used his food and hospitality management degree to secure a future in the family business: Knoebels, America’s largest free-admission amusement park. Today, the 1993 Penn College grad is one of the key operators of the Elysburg park, which has been making happy memories for nearly 90 years. “I’m very proud of my degree. Pennsylvania College of Technology prepares for the future,” Knoebel said. “The course selection …was very intriguing. Because of the culinary, because of the management, because of the hospitality. Those three facets right there – that was so similar to my jobs here in the park.” (Knoebel was also featured in the Spring 2011 issue of One College Avenue, Penn College’s magazine.)
