Penn State isn’t just University Park– it’s also the 19 branch Commonwealth campuses spread out all across Pennsylvania.

But 19 pounds later, Palmer will have no problem taking on much stronger, more skilled defensive ends than those he faced at the junior college level.

With 2,449 fans in attendance, the Nittany Lions took the season opener with a 1-0 victory over San Francisco on a picturesque Friday evening at Jeffrey Field. Needing to start the season on a high note, the Nittany Lions overcame a sloppy first half to net home the deciding goal, and begin the 2015 campaign with momentum. Let’s take a look at how the action unfolded.
Officially introduced last February, the Penn State Summers Founders Program provides six team of entrepreneurs — all with at least one current student — a $10,000 grant to pursue a startup dream for the summer. Five of the six teams, which were introduced for the inaugural summer in April, presented their products at the program’s first “Demo Day” Wednesday evening in Atherton Hall.
Almost half of first year students went random in their living selection. Childhood friends Arthur Minahan and Alexander Beitel were among those that chose to go random. However, the two were shocked when they checked their room assignments and found out they would be living together.
