Keirans racking up endorsements

2339393033_6bbf1a3d63

Incumbent Gavin Keirans has been endorsed by a number of student organizations in his bid for a second term as UPUA President. The IFC and PHC both endorsed the candidate, saying he best represented the interests of the Greek community. He was also endorsed by the Liberal Arts Undergraduate Council, which interesting because Samantha Miller’s running mate was the president of the LAUC last year. Finally, let us not forget the nominal and logistical support Keirans is receiving from Safeguard Old State, an organization he has been heavily involved with over the past few years.

Miller has been endorsed by fewer and less notable organizations, including IST Student Government, Quiz Bowl, and the Undergraduate Art History Association.

Two of the candidates are teachers, one being a professor emeritus at his own alma mater. One candidate is an orthopedic surgeon, and the last was formerly an assisting managing editor with the New York Times.

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.
