DJ Spotlights | Keegan D’Alfonso


Keegan D’Alfonso: Sophomore Journalism Major from Cape Porpoise, Maine.

On-Air DJ: Airs Thursdays from 11am-1pm

Favorite food? Chicken cutlet curry from Coco Ichiban.

Favorite color? Olive green

Favorite verse? Philippians 3:14, “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”

Favorite Resound song? Can I choose more than one? I really like “Prodigal” by Sidewalk Prophets and that new one by TobyMac—“Love Broke Thru”.

What is the theme of your shift? I like to talk and joke about life as a college student. I really try to incorporate teaching in all the stories I tell. I try to be funny and serious at the same time. I’m not sure exactly how well I am able to accomplish that, but I try and have fun doing it.

How did you get involved with Resound? I had previously been a part of a radio show with one of my friends, and I really enjoyed it. I knew I wanted to get involved with radio again, so when I heard about Resound, I immediately applied to be a DJ.

What else are you involved in at Cedarville? I used to be a DL. But I am currently the off-campus news editor of Cedars and I will be taking over as editor-in-chief next year.

Hobbies? I don’t know if I have time for hobbies anymore! I enjoy photography, and I have a Canon 60D. I like to play video games too when I have the time. I really enjoy playing strategy-type games.

Life goal? Right now I am pursuing journalism, and I’m not sure where that will lead me. Something that I have felt God leading me is to get involved with aid or mission agencies. Churches like to hear from the missionaries they are supporting, but the missionaries don’t always have time to sit down and write up a newsletter about what they have been doing. If I could do full-time work helping missionaries report on their work, and allow them to spend more time ministering to those around them, that would be awesome. But it will ultimately be wherever God leads me.

Random fact? I was in the Marines for 5 years after graduating high school. I got out as a sergeant. I had one combat deployment and various other deployments like training in other countries. I spent 1 year, 1 month, and 11 days total at sea, and I hate the ocean. I intended to join the Air Force, but then bumped into the Marine recruiter, and kinda got wound up in the Marines. I did enjoy the traveling, and got to go to 11 different countries during my time in the Marines.

Advice for blog readers? The best advice I can think to give college students is to take self-ownership. College is different than high school, and you really have to learn how to think for yourself. You are going to encounter things in your faith and in your life that will create questions you have never had before, and you have to take those things and investigate them to take ownership of everything you believe, and make it your own. Also, you need to learn that every open door is not necessarily an open door from God. You have to be praying and thinking of everything in your life, and look to God to determine what things He wants you to pour into with all of your abilities.
