Former Nittany Lion Jenkins Finds New Home in Arizona

After reaching the national finals in 2008, former Penn State wrestler Bubba Jenkins is taking his talents southwest to Arizona State for this coming wrestling season. Penn State revoked Jenkins' scholarship in December after an oil and water type of relationship with legendary head coach Cael Sanderson. Jenkins reportedly had trouble with Coach Sanderson's intense workouts and hard-nosed coaching philosophies, which had led Sanderson to an undefeated college career along with 4 national championships and an Olympic gold medal.

Arts Fest 2010 Success Despite Rain

They headed home, soggy, burnt, aching, and tired. And they all seemed to have smiles on their faces.

There was an exodus Sunday and Monday morning as artists, alumni, and students alike made their way back home from the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, which finished up for the 44th time on Sunday afternoon. As always, the five days of Arts Fest included fun for all ages, from the artist's pavilions to the Allen water buckets, to the late-night debauchery of what has become a de facto midsummers reunion for PSU students and alumni.
