One year ago today, Penn State changed forever. Freshman Joseph Dado was found dead in a stairwell between Steidle and Hosler building following a day-long search. Dado had been last seen leaving Phi Gamma Delta fraternity on the corner of Pollock Rd. and Burrowes Rd., and was heading in the direction of his East Halls dormitory.
Dado's death caused the University, IFC, and State College Borough to take serious looks at the way they handle alcohol abuse by students, and has resulted in significant policy changes from all three.
