Tre Bowman, a 1-star recruit out of Oakdale, Connecticut (via York, PA), gave his verbal commitment to Coach Ed DeChellis and the Penn State basketball program on Monday after making a visit to State College over the weekend. This will be Penn State’s first signing of the late signing period, which starts on April 14th.
“Never-Satisfed” Bowman (as he is known in the MySpace world), a 6’4 shooting guard starred at Central York High School, averaged 22 points a game his senior year and then transferred to St. Thomas More HS in Connecticut to refine his game for the college level. During his prep season, he averaged 17 points a game while leading his team to the national semifinals. Bowman will take one of the 3 scholarships the Nittany Lions had available after Chris Babb and Bill Edwards’ transfers and Andrew Ott’s graduation.

The 2005 Senior Class Gift, which for the past year has looked more like a construction zone than a piece of fine art, is nearly complete.
The installation– formally known as the Student Life Promenade— consists of five cement pillars lining a sidewalk on the side of the HUB facing College Ave. The pillars depict various images of student life at Penn State from over the past 150 years of the University’s existence.
The entire project is set to be completed by Friday, April 23 for Blue & White weekend but the nagging question still remains…what took so long?
The lazy and apathetic have no excuse not to vote today. Not only can you vote here, which consists of a incredibly quick ballot that should take no more than two minutes if you have already made up your mind, but you can also vote today in the HUB at the UPUA booth on the first floor until 9pm.
After noon, UPUA staff will be spreading out across campus to the commons, where they will also have computers set up for students to vote until 9pm. All you need to do is sign in under your Penn State account and vote. It took me less than a minute on my Blackberry.
Anyone who has ever tasted a Magnolia Bakery cupcake knows what’s up: cupcakes are the bakery goods of kings and legends. In terms of ‘tastiness density’ (yes, I just made this phrase up), it reigns supreme.
That’s why I was delighted to learn that State College will soon be blessed with not one, but two cupcake shops. Sugar on Top is opening up on Beaver Ave. within the next few weeks and *ndulge is set to open shop on College Ave. in May. Even a novice at economics knows what this means: delectable, savory, free-market competition.
Since its emergence from the shadow of Jay Bundy, the Univeristy Park Undergraduate Association has worked hard to establish itself as the legitimate student government of Penn State University Park. While his administration has not been without error, Gavin Keirans– the face of the UPUA for the past two years– has done much to increase his organization’s involvement in student life at Penn State.
However, Keirans has been unable to effect meaningful progress in the issue that is far and away the most pressing for our university– the ever increasing cost of a Penn State education.
