Club WaPo Gets Props for THON Fundraiser

n668771619_2017427_9984For about two weeks this fall, this writer had the privilege (or punishment) of attending water polo club practices. Those guys are pretty hard– their practices run from 10 to midnight every night. My sleep soon took priority, as did this little blog called Onward State, but so it goes.

The WaPo guys aren’t all blood, sweat, and chlorine though. The Collegiate Water Polo Association ran an article this week describing how the team raised money for THON. See, they couldn’t get away for all of the canning weekends due to matches, and a little car problem.

“Our team didn’t have enough cars available to make a canning trip that would actually produce a good amount of money.  So, we decided to host a water polo tournament instead.”

The Nittany Lions and six other teams, at an entry fee of $350, “unless a team volunteered someone to referee at least one Round 1 game – then it was $300,” according to Palski, joined together to play for the cause and raise $1,700 along the way.

The tournament was held over Valentine’s Day weekend.

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.
