Beginning October 24, WQLN Radio, Erie's local public radio station, will visit the campuses of Allegheny, Edinboro, Mercyhurst, Gannon and Penn State Behrend. During this time, teachers, staff, students, and alumni can show their school pride, while showing their support for NPR news, classical and jazz music and the cultural entertainment heard on WQLN Radio, located on the dial at 91.3FM.
When donations are made in the name of a school, a friendly competition ensues, culminating with the presentation of two trophies to the winning schools—one for Most Money Raised and one for Most Improved. It's all part of WQLN Radio's fall "Collegiate Challenge" and just one of the ways the station puts the "F-U-N" in fundraising.
Currently, the "Collegiate Challenge" trophies rest in the display cases of Penn State Erie, the Behrend College and Mercyhurst University. Where they reside after the fundraiser is over is up to listeners. Donate to support the programs on WQLN Radio while showing pride in your favorite school—take part in the Challenge!
