  12. Virtual visitation events keep community connected to Penn State DuBois DuBOIS – In continuing efforts to stay connected to communities served by Penn State DuBois, the campus has established virtual visitation events through Zoom for those interested in learning more about opportunities in higher education in Central Pennsylvania. While social distancing practices are a main concern for faculty and staff at Penn State DuBois, carrying out the campus’ land grand mission to provide education to Pennsylvania’s residents also remains the top priority. To achieve this goal, educators are employing every technological resource available to them in order to best reach students and members of the community in virtual settings and through other alternative methods. “We are open for business and here to provide all of the support our students and prospective students need,” said Penn State DuBois Enrollment Services Director Melissa Duttry. “While our staff is working remotely in order to best safeguard our campus community against the current coronavirus outbreak, it doesn’t mean we’re closed. In fact, the technology we have available to meet in virtual settings has provided us more ways to connect with people than ever before. A virtual Wildlife Visitation Day is planned for 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 29, 2020, and a virtual Visitation Day for Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) and Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA) programs is planned for 10:00 a.m. on Monday, May 4, 2020. To register for these visitation events, or for more information, visit https://admissions.psu.edu/pennstate/campuses/dubois/visit/?campusCode=DS#campusVisit Graduates of the Wildlife Technology program are qualified to go on to work in fields of wildlife conservation, environmental conservation, fish and game law enforcement, and more. Those who earn a degree in OTA or PTA embark on rewarding careers helping others to recover from injuries and cope with disabilities that might otherwise limit their quality of life, and assist individuals in functioning at their best in their daily lives. Penn State DuBois offers visitation events for a variety of degree programs to help inform those interested in higher education about the options they have available to them. For more information on all educational opportunities offered, contact the office of Enrollment Services at 814-375-4720 or ds-admissions@psu.edu

  14. Netflix’s Top 250 Best Movies To Watch In Lockdown, According To Rotten Tomatoes Everyone around the country is stuck inside playing video games and watching streams right now, and you may be starting to get desperate for content to consume to alleviate the boredom. Well, how does 250 movies on Netflix sound? Gotta make the most out of that subscription, I suppose. Netflix is…generally not known for its top-notch movie selection, as many of the rights to films go to other services or stay on demand where you have to pay for them individually. But they do have a good amount of movies, and are starting to make rather good original films of their own. The problem with Netflix is that it doesn’t have a rating system to actually tell you what’s good. You see a movie or show, you have to Google a review or a rating somewhere. That’s where Rotten Tomatoes comes in THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE (2016) 86% #250 Critics Consensus: The Autopsy of Jane Doe subverts the gruesome expectations triggered by its title to deliver a smart, suggestively creepy thriller that bolsters director André Ovredal's growing reputation.
