2 The Presidency That Was

The next UPUA President — be it Courtney Lennartz, Evan Ponter, or Maggie Quinn — will have gigantic shoes to fill. With the upcoming Jerry Sandusky trial and the Louis Freeh report due within the next year, I can promise you this — shit will hit the fan in our Happy Valley again, and the Student Body President will once again be thrust into the national spotlight.

And I know that when it does, I’ll miss T.J.

6 10 Questions With Adam Breneman

Coach Bill O’Brien has made quite a few splashes since his hire in January, but none bigger than signing 5 star tight end Adam Breneman out of Cedar Cliff High School (Camp Hill, PA). Breneman hauled in 72 passes for 1,120 yards with 12 touchdowns during his junior season, while earning an invitation to the Under-Armour All American game and the designation of #1 tight end recruit in the country. I was able to sit down with Adam earlier this week for a 10-questions feature:

Surrounded by supporters, including the likes of the Penn State Boombox Guy and local musician Chewi (who recently wrote a song for their campaign), Ponter and Kristobak took in some sun, played guitar, and threw the frisbee around for a couple hours.

30 Four UPUA Representatives Disregard Capital Day, Constituents, and Democracy

When the bus leaves for Harrisburg on April 4, carrying most members of your student government, four representatives won’t be on it. Capital Day, as it states on the website, “brings together alumni and student advocates for Penn State and connect them with their state legislators. ” It seems like the ideal event for student leaders to attend, but that is not the case for four members of our student government.

2 The End of an Era: UPUA’s 6th Assembly

Resolution 34-06, which allocates $6,800 to promote “Sexual Assault Awareness Week” from April 17-20, had received quite a bit of press leading up the meeting, and created more student interest than is typical for UPUA legislation. Every UPUA meeting opens up with roll call followed by an open student forum session. While typically just a procedural act that no student takes advantage of, this night was different. Only With Consent, a new student group, along with a spattering of other students filled the gallery waiting for an opportunity to speak in favor of the bill.
