WPSU to Auction Off Signed JoePa Glasses

You read correctly.

Local public media outlet WPSU will be auctioning off an autographed pair of JoePa’s signature glasses at its Connoisseur’s Dinner and Auction on February 20th. The event, which will be held in the Alumni Ballroom at the Nittany Lion Inn, is the place to be if you want to rub shoulders with the elite of the local public broadcasting community. In order to bid on and possibly win the famous specs however, you need not attend. Bidding will begin online this Monday for the glasses as well as for a signed Derek Jeter baseball bat. In the past, WPSU has auctioned off other JoePa memorabilia including autographed khakis and socks, but this is the first time his iconic glasses will cross the auctioneer’s stand.

If you want to go to the dinner and help local public broadcasting, be prepared to pay for it. Tickets are $180.00 per person and can be purchased here. Though, I suspect that if you are in the market for JoePa’s glasses, $180 is small potatoes.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.

Although we are confident McKinney is the best choice for the job (and, either way, the only choice), we do recognize that no candidate is perfect and want to acknowledge our concerns with the ticket and hopes for the future.

Students To Again Lobby Borough Council For Increased Lighting Downtown

“A lot of people have worked on getting [lighting downtown], but the biggest issue that they’ve had is that it’s just kind of like a non-starter sometimes with some of the Borough.”
