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! [Philly.com]

CATA had a record-breaking year in ridership. The highest single day was State Patty’s Day. [The Daily Collegian]

Mike’s Movies at 210 Calder Way will be closing this fall.

In any case, the Mike’s Movies website is pretty horrible. [The Daily Collegian]

An alumna wrote a novel set in State College. Her Twitter account has this for her bio: “My books aren’t novels, they are literary experiences… Enjoy!” Sorry, babe, but your literary experience is one I won’t have the pleasure of… experiencing. [The Daily Collegian]

Penn State and the Process of Life

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