You know that modern looking building that sits lonely on the opposite side of Park Ave. from the Business Building? That’s called the Katz Building and as of January 12th, classes for the University Park campus of the Dickinson School of Law will be taught there. The American Bar Association recently accredited the new site, making the  Penn State-Dickinson School of Law the nation’s only approved unitary two-location law school (The other location is in Carlisle, of Jim Thorpe fame).

The nation’s fifth oldest law school and the oldest in Pennsylvania, the Dickinson School of Law has, of late, been drawing legal scholars from such diverse fields as: Russian Law, Antitrust Law, Commercial Arbitration, and International Banking and Finance. The graduate School of International Affairs will also be sharing the $125 million Katz Building. This closeness promises to offer many opportunities for collaboration in the future.

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.
