2 Moving On, But Not Forgetting

I’m not the same person that I was a year ago. I was a very involved student at this University, giving tours as a Lion Ambassador, writing posts for this blog, taking classes as a Marketing major, etc. And all of those things remain constant today.

2 Learning to Accept Change Through Football

It may be impossible to find a sports team at any level that hated change more than the Nittany Lions Football program. On those rare occasions, however, change is impossible to avoid, and that was the inevitable situation one year ago.

0 One Year Later, What Have We Learned?

It is now exactly one year to the day that Jerry Sandusky was arrested and charged with 40 counts of child sexual abuse. The arrest kicked off the one year that we at Penn State would like to forget most of all. The scandal devastated us, as the school and its symbols we thought we knew seemed to unravel.
