Housing officials opened the time capsule dating back to 1956 and replaced it with one to show future generations a glimpse of the year 2014. Inside the one from 1956 were dozens of items, including sorority hats, magazines, student handbooks, campus guides, newspapers and directories, some of which will soon be on display in Redifer Commons.

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.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will look a little different when he returns to the field this season. He shaved his head as an act of solidarity for his daughter, Leah, who was diagnosed with cancer. She begins chemotherapy soon and will most likely lose her hair.

So why did we adopt the colors blue and white two and a half years after the student body chose pink and black? The available records on this subject are not extensive, but according to university archives, the reason was two-fold: The color pink faded to white after a few weeks in the sun, and the school’s baseball club was mocked for its pink and black uniforms by an opposing team.

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.

A single caller repeatedly contacted Penn State Police to leave non-specific bomb threats. The caller said there were explosive devices in every building on campus. The caller said there was a suicide bomber at 9th avenue and 7th street, but there is no such intersection on or near the University Park campus.

1AA Joe Paterno Statue
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.”

Another year, another list of generally forgettable commencement speakers at University Park. It's a recurring theme -- at least in recent history -- to recruit graduate students or faculty to give the spring commencement address for the various colleges.

Bill O'Brien, Mic'd Up
In a recent interview, Texans head coach Bill O'Brien was questioned about his decision to leave Penn State, the NCAA sanctions, and his relationship with his former players. Even though he left the program, O'Brien remained a staunch defender of the Nittany Lions. He opened up about how hard it was to leave his team, explaining that he called every player until 4 a.m. on the night he accepted the Houston job. He also sent a diss Mark Emmert's way in talking about the ridiculousness of the bowl ban at Penn State.
