Hawk Attracts Crowd Outside of Willard

While walking by the Obelisk this afternoon, I saw a crowd gathering by a tree outside of Willard.

At first I thought it was Campus Trees 110 or something, but then I noticed that many in the crowd were snapping cell pics. I detoured from my route to check out was going on. To my surprise, it was a hawk causing all the commotion.

Just after 3:00 today, a crowd gathered outside of Willard, near the Obelisk, to gawk at a hawk.
The hawk sat on the tree for about ten minutes before it pooped and flew away.

For the past couple of years, Columbia’s Bwog has been following the adventures of a hawk they named Hawkmadinejad. Should we introduce our hawk to Columbia’s? Thing is, I’m a little worried the Ivy League hawk would look down on its landgrant equivalent.

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.
