WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT…

blacksquarePenn State will be shutting off the decorative flood lights at three campus points of interest at 8:30 pm on Saturday night for one hour as part of Earth Hour.

Earth Hour is an event created by the WWF to raise awareness about the dangers of climate change. I didn’t realize WWF was into the whole green movement, but it kind of makes sense: Vince McMahon and Al Gore do kind of resemble each other.

The lights at Old Main, the IST Building, and the Lion Shrine will all be turned off. Other attractions that are participating in Earth Hour include the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, and the Sears Tower.

Our artist’s rendition of what Old Main might look like after the lights have been turned off accompanies this post.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration.
