Alumna recalls Kennedy death 50 years later
By Kathleen Ellison
Fifty years ago around 2 p.m. on a Friday, Sharon Taylor was leaving Professor Zimmerli’s class in Roger gymnasium in Lock Haven University. She ran with some friends up a stairwell and everyone was laughing and feeling good.
She was the first to reach the top of the stairs, and when she opened the door she saw a woman, a fellow student. They made eye contact and the woman said, “They shot the president.”
Everyone is familiar with the infamous assassination of John F. Kennedy an event that is observing it’s fiftieth anniversary this Friday, Nov. 22. On that day in 1963, while on a political trip, President Kennedy was shot in Dallas, Texas, shaking the nation to its core.

With Thanksgiving break coming up, most of us college students are heading home to mom and dad’s for a huge Thanksgiving feast. While you’re sitting on the couch trying to digest the massive amounts of turkey and stuffing you’ve consumed, here are some Thanksgiving themed episodes of some great television shows to look up on Netflix.

College isn’t cheap, but then again neither is life outside of college.
As students, we spend what seems like millions in expenses that keep piling up. Room and board, books and service fees are things we don’t want to pay for but are required to. Food on the other hand, is up to us.
At Lock Haven University you are not required to purchase a meal plan unless you live in one of the residence halls.
The most basic meal plan costs around $1,500 per semester, others go up in price depending on how often you want to eat each week.
For Joel Blesh, the head swim coach at Lock Haven University, everything begins and ends in the pool.
At the age of 26, Blesh has seemed to swim full circle from his early life as a swimmer, to a now full time position at his alma mater doing what he loves.
But don’t let his age fool you. Blesh is no beginner when it comes to the sport of swimming.
Born and raised in Lock Haven, Pa., Blesh found himself immediately drawn to the sport as a young kid. He knew at an early age that it was something that he would not easily give up on.

Many things have started changing at Lock Haven University, the most recent being the educator evaluations. These evaluations were typically taken in the classroom while the instructor stepped out until they were completed. This year the evaluations have been altered to an online format in MyHaven for students to take of their own free will.
I personally believe that this was a poor decision for the university, largely because of how inaccessible they are. It is more likely that the students will overlook them considering they are hard to find on MyHaven and even more unnoticeable when students have already registered for classes.
