Student(s) Hospitalized at Fraternity

IMG_3771Three ambulances and a number of State College and Penn State Police vehicles congregated on the front yard of the Tau Tau Chapter of Tau Delta Phi (the former Phi Delta Theta house), located at 240 N. Burrowes, responding to an emergency call.

Onward State witnessed one male student be removed from the house with more than five emergency medical technicians working on him. The student had vomit on his face and body. The EMTs then placed a tube down the student’s throat. A defibrillator was put on standby in the ambulance.

Another ambulance also pulled away with lights on, indicating another student was being treated.

Windows on the house were blacked out with trashbags. [Tau Delta Phi’s windows are were not covered in the front with trash bags.  They were dark red curtains.]

Luke Pierce, President of the Interfraternity Council, was present after hearing about the commotion via @OnwardState. He is waiting to confer with the fraternity and police before releasing a statement.

Update: At this time the IFC is treating this as just a medical emergency and has no plans to make a statement at this time.

[Editor’s Note: In an earlier version of this post, a sentence was added by an editor that speculated hazing might have been involved in last night’s incident at Tau Delta Phi. That sentence was not written by Stefan, the author of the original post. Given the additional information that has come forth since the story broke, and the clarity morning brings, we do not believe further speculation that the event was hazing-related is warranted at this time.]

PSU Cadets to Teach Air Force a Thing or Two

This past year under the leadership of Colonel Steven Drago, the Penn State Detachment of the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) developed a new way to teach Air Power doctrine and air superiority theory. Unlike the local Army ROTC detachment, future Air Force officers cannot practice some of the key skills they will need when they go active duty.
