Lost Shealey Found, Just Wanted Peachy Paterno

Belated from the CDT:

Some of you may be aware that the Penn State Department of Crop and Soil Sciences owns vast turfgrass plots for research on golf course grasses. Well, how do you keep birds and other animals off the grass? The Department bypasses child labor, instead choosing to employ a dog. But, unfortunately for the Department, she went missing December 1st.

Shealey, as she is known, disappeared about 2:30 p.m. Monday after going out for a run on the grounds which are off University Drive and Park Avenue across from the Blue Band Building. Matt Naedel, the research support technician who takes care of Shealey, said she was out doing her job for about 5 minutes when staff went to check on her and couldn’t find her.

Luckily, Shealey didn’t get far before Naedel picked her up at 4:30 p.m. It was quite a scare for the Department, who, if Shealey hadn’t turned up, would have had to rely on their backup animal deterrent: a Nittany Lion (slightly more challenging to control).

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
