My name is Patrick Dietrich and I am the Web Manager and a staff writer for The Keystone. I am a third semester senior and am majoring in Sociology with minors in Psychology and Professional Writing. Besides The Keystone, I am involved with Kutztown University Radio, Phi Sigma Pi National Honor Fraternity, CONNECTIONS Orientation Program, the National Residence Hall Honorary, Housing and Residence Life and the Sociology Club.
There are many things I have gained from The Keystone and many things I hope to contribute before I graduate in December.
I have learned that you need to adapt to survive in the professional world. The Keystone has given me my real first look into what working with a news company will be like. It has prepared me to always be on my toes and meet deadlines accordingly. It has helped me realize that the news is changing everyday. Since I have joined The Keystone, we have expanded our digital side of news exponentially.
We post five articles a week to our website and to Facebook and Twitter. Many articles are student written. We even have a mobile app now, which is something I never imagined us having.
I know this will be the beginning of something great for The Keystone.
