Dallas Makes Sean Lee a Cowboy

Tally up another one!ย Sean Lee is the newest Nittany Lion to be selected in the 2010 NFL Draft-- he has been selected in the second round by the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas made Lee the 55th player to be chosen after moving up in the draft from a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles. Lee's hometown Pittsburgh Steelers passed on him to select Virgina Tech linebacker Jason Worilds, just 3 spots earlier.

The Cowboys, who employ a 3-4 defensive scheme, will likely play the former Lion as an inside linebacker-- a position similar to the one he played in at Penn State.

The waiting game continues for the remaining Penn State players.ย  Navarro Bowman, Darryll Clark, Andrew Quarless...who will be next?

Old Main Bell Rings Again

The Old Main bell stopped tolling in 1892, and today it rang again. The dedication ceremony for the restored and now displayed Old Main bell, the senior class gift of 2009, was held at 10.15 AM today at the west side of Old Main lawn. In addition to the bell, two other gifts were inaugurated: the Student Life Promenade, the 2005 class gift which illustrates 150 years of Penn State student life, and the 2008 gift, the Atherton and Curtain Gateway. All three projects were completed within the past month.

More details about the ceremony and the gifts after the jump.

Regulations of Unpaid Internships

On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of Labor released a document clarifying the roles of for-profit employers and colleges in students' unpaid internships. The document includes a six-part test from the Fair Labor Standards Act (which derives from a 1947 Supreme Court decision involving railroad-company trainees). If the following six factors are not met, then an employment relationship exists under the FLSA and minimum wage and overtime provisions must be given to the intern.

Find out what these regulations entail after the jump.

59 Years of Blue and White

You say ‘tomato’, I say ‘tomahto’. You say ‘spring football scrimmage’, well we say ‘Blue and White weekend!’ This tradition, which we have come to know as the overdue midpoint between the next football season and the previous, has ingrained itself into Penn State lore just as much as the grilled sticky and the Creamery.
