Health Science Faculty vs Students Ping Pong Tournament at The Haven

May 12, 2014-Lock Haven University Health Science students recently found a way to relieve some stress with upcoming finals.  What a better way than competing in a ping pong tournament – against the very faculty that will be grading those finals?

The Health Science Department of LHU decided to hold the student vs faculty ping pong tournament over the last four weeks of the semester to lighten the mood.  “Students and faculty loved working together and competing outside the classroom,” said Dr. Beth McMahon, professor.  “We got to know each other in a different way and enjoyed laughing together as we entered into the stressful end of the semester.”

As much as faculty may have tried, their students eventually picked them off, one by one.  In the semi-finals, however, were Will Nesbitt, Health Science student, and Dr. Scott Carnicom, Dean for the College of Natural, Behavioral, and Health Sciences.  After jokes of, “When are you SUPPOSED to graduate?” and a heartfelt loss, Will Nesbitt defeated Dean Carnicom, and went on to with the finals where he played against Jesse Myers.
