Noteworthy: The launch of a College podcast

Go inside our new podcast, Conversations Beneath the Cupola, hosted by President Bob Iuliano.

Recorded beneath the Cupola of historic Pennsylvania Hall, a new Gettysburg College podcast, Conversations Beneath the Cupola, brings attention to our students, faculty, and alumni who are living lives of meaning and service today—and since our founding in 1832.

Hosted by President Bob Iuliano, each podcast episode features interviews with Gettysburgians and thought leaders, ending with an anecdotal “slice of life” at Gettysburg College, told through the president’s perspective. In our first episode, Iuliano reflected on a touching interaction he witnessed between Hall of Athletic Honors inductee Joe Cordova ’97 and his son during the induction ceremony.
