Robbie McGrath UP’08 Missing Since Sunday

We are following up on a tip we received with the following information:

Robert “Robbie” McGrath was last seen around 4 PM on Sunday April 18, 2010 in downtown State College, PA. He graduated in December 2009 and was in town visiting friends.

He is 5’9” weighs about 180 pounds with dark brown hair and blue eyes. Robbie was last seen wearing a black hat, Pittsburgh Penguins T-shirt, blue and white Penn State windbreaker, jeans and white sneakers.

His car is a mid to early- 90s Oldsmobile that is dark red with “OBX”, a mustang and Pittsburgh Penguins bumper stickers.

We’ll have more information as it comes in.

Update 3:37 pm: We spoke to the State College police department, they are currently treating the case as a “request for assistance” not a Missing Persons case. They do not suspect foul play and stated that the case is being handled by Robbie’s hometown police station near Pittsburgh.

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.
