The Knightly News Media Club will hold its annual soup-sale fundraiser.

Club members will deliver soup on campus between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on March 8.

“Any time is good for soup,” Professor Paul Miller, media club co-adviser, said of past sales.

The club advisers and vice president are cooking four kinds of soup to raise money for club needs and projects.

“The Maryland crap soup is perhaps one of the greatest soups I’ve ever had in my life,” Associate Provost Jared Rife said.

The types of soups are:

  • Maryland Crab: $5
  • Vegetable: $4
  • Cheeseburger: $4
  • Chicken Tortilla: $4

Soup is sold is one size, and soda is also available.

“It’s a really good fundraiser and I always enjoy the soups, and it takes care of my lunch for that day,” Lynne Seachrist, assistant to the vice president of academic affairs/provost, said.

Other previous soup buyers agreed.

“It’s reasonably priced and it’s great to have lunch brought to your desk,” stated Lezli Austen, public relations associate at Central Penn.

The soup is pre-order only, cash payment will be collected when the soup is delivered.

Rife describes the soup sale as “I think the soup sale, it fits the exact need of what Central Penn has to offer in that it is both warm and comforting.” To place an order, email Professor Paul Miller at by the end of the day on March 6.
