Penn State Acquires Phi Delta Theta House

Yep, it finally happened. On Friday, Penn State acquired the former fraternity house of Tau Delta Phi/Phi Delta Theta for $1.5 million. Regardless of the vandalism that took place days before the acquisition, Penn State agreed to pay the original price that was made back in March. Penn State spokeswoman, Lisa Powers, stated that the Phi Delta Theta Alumni group, who previously owned the property, cleaned up and repaired as much as they could before the property closed.

Pennsylvania Gets Foursquare, Offers Badges

Earlier this week, VisitPA, the tourism bureau of our great state, launched a foray into Foursquare, one of the world's most popular location-based social networks. It's not the first such civic endeavor into reputation building, but it is one of the largest, geographically speaking, to date.


Some Penn State locations are highlighted too. The Tavern Restaurant is listed (the state explains "it's crowded because it's so good"), as is the Creamery (but, Pennsylvania, it's Peachy Paterno not Paterno Peach!).
