Distraction of the Day: Love You, Hershey

It’s funny how similar Hershey and State College are. Both towns were products of single institutions. In Hershey, it was Milton Hershey’s chocolate company. In State College, it was the Farmers’ High School of Pennsylvania (a.k.a. Penn State– have you heard of it?).

This video is about Hershey, more specifically, the chocolate factory. It’s one of those old-school educational videos that our generation sees more often in the form of modern parodies than in the original incarnations. There’s a nice mention of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center a few minutes into the edutainment- it’s pretty amazing how much the compound has expanded since the video was produced.

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.
