If you’re reading this – my last blog entry – I want to thank you. You, the prospective college student making your way through the maze of postcards, packets and emails sent to you by colleges across all 50 states, have chosen to visit us here at Edge. By visiting us, you’ve confirmed the belief […]
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In honor of today’s holiday and the “luck o’ the Irish,” we decided to ask a few Gannon students what they do for luck and if they believe in superstitions. Cristen Manion, freshman theatre & communication arts major: “I do believe in superstitions – most of them are theatre related. I was […]
“Congratulations! Our records indicate that you will graduate in May or August of this year.” You can imagine how excited I was to read those words in a letter I received from Gannon two weeks ago. Who wouldn’t be ecstatic to know that you’re on the right track and your life plans are falling into […]

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” may have closed, but the things I learned while doing it haven’t left me quite yet. That’s something amazing about the performances I do here at Gannon; they never really leave even after the set is torn down and the cast disperses, and that’s awesome.
I’m usually behind the scenes of the Edge videos. I write scripts, do camera work and edit many of the videos. Editing takes a lot longer than anyone would think. I’m always bad at judging how long it’ll take. I say I’ll be able to edit in an hour and it takes me three. The […]
