Round-Up: Things We Didn’t Post This Week

get_some_get_some_get_some_get_some_get_someWe’ll be picking up the pace in the next couple of weeks as fall term nears. The only organization more excited than Onward State for the return of school is Anheuser-Busch INBev, proud producers of Penn State students’ choicest diet supplement. Stimulus package, much?

The Inquirer asked Joe Paterno five questions. Best quote: “That phone rings on Sunday morning and I shake.” Stay out of trouble, boys! []

Penn State and the Process of Life

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