Collegian’s News Adviser Bids PSU Farewell

Grab your box of tissues, the time has come to say goodbye.

It is always tough to watch someone leave Penn State, especially after that someone has been here for 12 years. And no, we’re not talking Van Wilder style (although he may be close popularity-wise).

Collegian news adviser, John Harvey, finished his final day at Penn State Wednesday. Harvey will be moving on down to Georgia Southern University, working as the director of student media.

Harvey had a 12-year run here in Happy Valley, making him the longest-serving news adviser in the history of the Collegian. Throughout his time here, he has helped 355 students win a total of 356 awards.

The Collegian has yet to name a successor, and it seems Harvey will certainly be a tough act to follow.
