PNC Students Enjoy Riding the Transit Triangle Bus

Transit bus

Transit Triangle Bus Service Begins Feb. 2 between Michigan City, La Porte and PNC

Purdue University North Central students are taking advantage of the new Transit Triangle bus service that provides convenient commuter transportation between LaPorte, Michigan City and PNC.

The buses started rolling on Feb. 3 and students who ride the bus are happy to have a handy option to get to and from campus for classes and activities.

Student Renee Scherer, a Business major from LaPorte, said that she rides the bus so that the family car can be available for other family members who may need it during the day. “I wanted to try it,” she said. “The bus itself is nice. The seats are comfortable so you can relax for the ride. The driver is very friendly. It’s great to be able to sit back and let someone else drive and contend with traffic.” She noted that she particularly appreciates the ride to campus during inclement weather. “There’s no stress,” she said. Her time on the bus is spent studying and enjoying a cup of coffee. “I have my hands free so my mind is clear to think about things other than driving. It’s a great option.”

Anthony Catchings, of Michigan City, turned to the Transit Triangle when his car broke down and he needed reliable transportation to and from PNC. “It was a good option it saved me from being late and provided my transportation during the period in when my car was not in any type of driving shape,” said Catchings, a Social Work major. “I like the bus service; the people are friendly and the drive is quick. I like how someone can just ride the bus to get to school from different towns. If someone doesn’t have a car or doesn’t want to drive, I would highly recommend they try the transit bus. If someone needs transportation or does not wish to spend a lot of money on gas they should consider riding the transit bus.”

Darlene Ramirez, a Nursing major from LaPorte, said that she rides the bus “because it is a dependable and affordable form of transportation. It gives me the opportunity to see fellow students who live in the area and meet other PNC students It is very convenient. I would recommend the transit bus to all students. It makes it possible for struggling students to be able to make it to school and further their education.”

Purdue North Central Chancellor Dr. James B. Dworkin noted that having the Transit Triangle transportation makes PNC and higher education more accessible to current and prospective students who do not have access to private transportation. “We anticipate that ridership will grow over time as students, faculty, staff and campus visitors become more familiar with the service and come to rely on it for their daily transportation,” said Dworkin.

Bus passes will be available for purchase starting March 1. For purchase information, a full transportation schedule and other current information, visit the Transit Triangle website, www.TransitTriangle.com. This website can also be accessed through the MC Transit website at www.emichigancity.com/cityhall/departments/coach/ and the La Porte TransPorte website at www.cityoflaporte.com/transporte.

Purdue North Central Sinai Forum Welcomes Back Levenfeld

The Purdue University North Central Sinai Forum welcomes Wendy Levenfeld, who returns to the Forum as executive director for the Forum’s 62nd season.

“We are thrilled that Wendy has agreed to serve as executive director,” said PNC Chancellor Dr. James B. Dworkin. “Wendy is a tremendously talented individual who has an unsurpassed knowledge and insight into the Forum. She has played a vital role in ensuring the Forum’s success through the years. I am confident we will have another successful year under Wendy’s leadership.”

Levenfeld has been affiliated with the Forum for more than 20 years and served 17 years as executive director. She explained her job duties simply, “As Executive Director, it is my job to do whatever is necessary to bring speakers of note to Northwest Indiana.”

During those past years, Levenfeld stepped in to do whatever tasks needed to be done. She was responsible for fund raising, writing grant proposals, negotiating contracts, selecting and overseeing the venue preparation, ticketing, scheduling the programs, dealing with speakers, agents and gatekeepers, writing or supervising all print materials, coordinating all book signings and dinners and receptions, emceeing the event, speaking wherever and whenever possible to service clubs and other groups about upcoming seasons and acting as chauffeur and tour guide, if necessary, once the speaker was in town.

The end result was a speakers series that included some of the most noted names in the country.

She is happy to step back in as executive director, “While unexpected, I am very much looking forward to once again bringing the very best speakers addressing topics that are important to us all right here to Northwest Indiana,” she said.

The Sinai Forum, originally known as the Sunday Evening Forum Series, was inspired by Michigan City residents Dr. Milton and Sylvia Bankoff, who envisioned bringing some of the top minds, opinion leaders and news makers to Michigan City to present important issues of the day in a town hall setting. The first season launched in 1954 and hasn’t missed a year since.

Forum speakers have included Nobel Prize recipients, former heads of state, Pulitzer Prize winners, scientists, nationally recognized media personalities and famous performing artists.

Levenfeld played in instrumental role in bringing the Forum under the stewardship of Purdue University North Central in 2006,

The speakers themselves have been amazed by the Forum. Political commentator James Carville a speaker during the 1999-2000 season, told the Forum audience, “I am humbled to have the opportunity to speak from the same stage as some of the most influential people of the past half century.”

Former New York Governor the late Mario Cuomo, a 1997 – 1998 speaker, regarded the Forum as “nothing less than remarkable.”

Judy Jacobi, a 38-year veteran subscriber and Sinai Forum committee member noted, “Cuomo was right about that on many counts. Regardless of the convenience that newer communication channels like the internet or TV afford us, the face-to-face Forum experiences give us unique and memorable relationships with some of the finest speakers on substantive issues and some great change-of-pace performers. The Forum will continue to be unforgettable.”

Jacobi described, “How else can we be moved, or entertained, by the over-the -top personalities like political pundits James Carville and Marlee Matlin; or experience a moving talk by Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel who spoke of the evil of the Nazi regime and not just how it affected history, but how hatred infects the world today and in the future; or feel the warmth and frankness of ABC’s Good Morning America’s anchor Robin Roberts; or witness the piercing intellect of iconic commentator Charles Krauthammer or experience the pride we felt when multi-time Grammy jazz masters Jeff Hamilton, on drums, John Clayton on bass, and Michigan City’s own Dr. Peter Bankoff on a Steinway, entertained us with sizzling music to end our most recent 61st season.”

The 2015 – 2016 Forum season will open in September.

 

 

PNC Staff Member Named to Indiana TRIO Executive Board

Catalina Rodriguez, director of Purdue University North Central TRIO Student Support Services programs has been named secretary of the Indiana TRIO Executive Board.

The appointment as secretary comes in addition to her current position as chair of the Awards & Recognition Committee, which recognizes three professionals for their contributions to the TRIO community.

TRIO is a series of federally-funded college opportunity programs created to support students in earning a college degree. The original three programs were established in the 1960s, leading to the term “TRIO.” Today, there are six programs, of which PNC has two: Student Support Services, in place since 1984 and Educational Talent Search, in place since 1989. Rodriguez oversees Student Support Services.

As member of the Executive Board, Rodriguez feels that she can aid the PNC TRIO programs. “We will have access to quality professional development, have the ability to build stronger relationships with colleagues and we will learn innovative best practices in the state,” she explained.

Student Support Services was created to increase the number of disadvantaged, low-income, first generation college and students with a documented disability earning college degrees. At PNC, it motivates and provides 195 student participants with the resources to be successful, including one-on-one tutoring, proactive academic support, financial literacy, financial aid assistance, career and personal advising and opportunities for cultural and social activities.

Rodriguez noted that the PNC TRIO participants consistently exceed the program’s federally established goals for academic persistence, good academic standing, and graduation rates.

Indiana TRIO provides leadership and scholarship opportunities for TRIO students in Indiana, creates quality professional development, promotes advocacy efforts and engages TRIO alumni.

Indiana has 38 TRIO programs serving about 11,000 students and bring in nearly $11 million in federal funding.
