We Are…?

Friday night was the first of what is shaping up to be one of the greatest semesters of concerts at Penn State in recent history. We Are Scientists played what was probably the most entertaining concert I've been to at Penn State. For all of you off canning this weekend, here's a recap of what you missed.

Though the doors opened a bit late due to a longer than anticipated sound check, the night ran smoothly. Before the show even started, Keith Murray, lead singer and guitarist of We Are Scientists was at the band's merch table, chatting with the early crowd, mostly apologizing for a shortage of men's t-shirts (which were all apparently bought the night before at their show in D.C.).

Seen on Twitter: THON Makes It Big

Penn State senior and self proclaimed "social media addict" Han Ma posted a picture of his canning group being shown on a huge screen in the middle of Times Square. Also, he let us know that John Mayer apparently showed up at the Hope Gala on Friday night for THON.

Does Graham Spanier Make Too Much $$$?

A question that always leads to some interesting debates.

Do executive officers of organizations deserve the amount of money that they receive every year?

On Wednesday, the Collegian reported that Penn State President Graham Spanier was ranked 6th nationally among public university presidents in terms of annual base salary for the 2008-2009 fiscal year. In total pay compensation Spanier ranks 18th among the same group.

My question to the Onward State community is whether his $590,000 salary is too much.
