On our segment with Rife, we discuss the number of changes that are happening in academics around the college, including the five-day class schedule, new general education curriculum, and new minors and certificates that are rolling out.

Also joining this segment is Knightly News Reporter Rebert Thompson, who gives a student perspective on the changes on his first-ever podcast

On the second segment of the podcast, we welcome BSU Adviser Asia Sargent and President Anier Caldwell-Brooks to chat about the Black Student Union on campus.

Also joined by Knightly News Co-President Jenelle Dulack, the group discusses upcoming events for the club, including the BSU Lock-In, the Juneteenth celebration, and their efforts for the Black History Month event that took place in February.
