Transportation round-up

How is everyone getting home for Thanksgiving break? There are a number of methods, but which is the best? The answer is circumstantial, but make sure you know your options. Here are some more unusual ones:

For people living anywhere from Harrisburg to Lancaster, try the shuttle between University Park and the Hershey Medical Center. It leaves UP at 7:00 am and 4:30 pm every weekday. It takes about two hours and fifteen minutes to get there.  The seats are OK but you can’t beat free!

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
