Additional Info on the Phoenixville Education Campus released

Neumann College, which, along with the Phoenixville Education Campus at Franklin Commons, is set to open its doors in September, has announced plans for its initial educational offerings. The first is a master's of science in education.

The program can be completed in two years of part-time study. It is designed, he said, "for classroom teachers, or those who would like to become teachers, to earn the M.S. with certification in any of four areas: early childhood, elementary, secondary, or special education."

The second program is a certificate program in intelligence studies.

About options for programs in business, Bell said that Neumann officials would be talking with their colleagues among the participating colleges about possible collaborative programs.

But Neumann has already planned at least one other offering, a certificate program in intelligence studies. "This has been an offshoot of our criminal justice program here," said Bell.

This one-year, four-course program concentrates on methods in intelligence analysis, and supplements the concentration with electives in terrorism, organized crime, money laundering, drug smuggling, political corruption and Farsi. It "provides an opportunity for those who already have a college degree to enter a career field in which they can … help the national security effort," according to Ron Chance, professor of political science and criminal justice.

And that's not all! Two new schools have been announced as co-tenants. Joining Neumann and the previously announced Alvernia College and Montgomery County Community College will be Delaware County Community College and the Lansdale School of Business.

---
"At this point," Moskowitz said, "Neumann is coming in September and offering both a Master in Education program and a Certificate Program in Intelligence Analysis. Alvernia, MCCC, and DCCC will begin offering courses in January 2008. Lansdale School of Business will begin its work in Phoenixville in the Spring of 2008."

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
