HARRISBURG, Pa. - "Infinite Opportunities," a half-hour, public affairs program featuring Pennsylvania's State System of Higher Education universities, will premiere its second season 9:30 a.m., Jan. 17 on the Pennsylvania Cable Network.

In its inaugural season, the program introduced viewers to the 14 State System universities and the broad array of academic programs they offer. The new season will delve even deeper into the many opportunities Pennsylvania's public universities provide.

"In the second season, we will go more in-depth, providing viewers the opportunity every week to learn even more about the programs and services the universities offer, not just to our more than 100,000 students, but to all of the residents of the Commonwealth," said State System Chancellor Frank T. Brogan, who regularly serves as the program's moderator.

The Jan. 17 episode will focus on honors programs offered by four of the State System universities including Cheyney, Edinboro, Lock Haven and Shippensburg. The program will also feature interviews with Sarah Latch, an honors student at Shippensburg University, and Marie Conley, vice chair of the State System's Board of Governors and an alumna of Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.

"I have been involved with the State System since I was a student at Bloomsburg," said Conley, who previously served on the Council of Trustees at her alma mater and has been a member of the Board of Governors since 2003. "My education and degree from Bloomsburg was a springboard to a successful career.

"The opportunities students have at any of the State System universities to prepare themselves for their own success throughout their lives truly are limitless. 'Infinite Opportunities' gives each of the institutions a forum to showcase all they have to offer students and the people of the Commonwealth."

Additional topics to be covered during the second season will include athletics, online learning, service learning, liberal arts, internships, health and wellness, diversity, alumni success, economic impact, supporting higher education and succeeding in college. The season will conclude with 14 university-specific episodes.
