Karn Resigns From IFC Position Over Twitterversy

The Interfraternity Council announced Thursday that Noah Karn decided to resign from his position as IFC Representative.

“The Interfraternity Council supports Noah’s decision to remove himself from the UPUA general assembly,” said IFC President Max Wendkos. “We represent a contingent of fraternities whose core beliefs are rooted in tolerance and acceptance and we will never stand for such ignorant conduct. We apologize to those that were negatively affected by Noah’s inappropriate comments and hope that he and every other Penn State student will take away a valuable lesson from this unfortunate situation.”

For those following the Noah Karn saga the past few days, his resignation should come as no surprise as the next logical step in his self-removal from student government. It all resulted from backlash over derogatory comments made on Twitter over the past few months.

Karn’s seat will be filled by the IFC Director for Student Organization Relations Patrick Solberg until a new Representative is elected at the beginning of the fall 2010 semester.

Neither Karn nor Solberg responded to requests for comment on the situation.

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.
