0 Altoona Student in Bomb-Making Case Takes Plea

Penn State Altoona engineering student Vladislav Miftakhov accepted a plea deal for making and possessing a bomb in his apartment earlier this year. Miftakhov, who was born in Russia but moved to the United States when he was four, entered his guilty plea Thursday on one count of manufacturing explosive devices without a license. Sentencing guidelines say he faces up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.

1 Pink and Black: The History of Penn State’s Original Colors

So why did we adopt the colors blue and white two and a half years after the student body chose pink and black?

0 A Final Note of Thanks: Jessica Tully’s Senior Column

I wish I could say I had some grand advice I learned over the past four years, but I can’t because I still don’t have most of the answers. As I sit here thinking about the mistakes I’ve made, I realize I wouldn’t want to change any of them. Each speed bump brought me to where I am today, and for that, I am forever grateful. So rather than leave you with a piece of advice I learned, I’d like to thank the people who defined my college experience. Although I can’t name everyone, I’d like to thank some of the people who helped me along the way. Without all of you, I don’t know where I’d be today.

332 Joe Paterno Statue Planned for Downtown

A bronze statue of Joe Paterno seated on a bench will be erected outside the Tavern Restaurant in November 2015. The statue, designed by sculptor Zenos Frudakis, is in response to Penn State’s decision to remove Joe Paterno’s statue from Porter Road in July 2012. At the time, President Rodney Erickson called the statue a “lightning rod of controversy.”
