PRIDE. Asks Fans to Pledge Good Behavior

Penn State PRIDE. Sportsmanship Initiative are holding an event in the HUB today from 10am-3pm to promote good sportsmanship among Penn State fans. PRIDE. are asking fans to sign their pledge to promise to treat opponents with respect and foster good relationships with opposing fans. According to their website, the organization, now in its second year, aims to “perpetuate the traditions of Penn State University and ensure a welcoming environment for all fans,” regardless of their affiliation. Their timing couldn’t be better, as Penn State welcomes arch-rival #1 Ohio State to the Bryce Jordan Center for a showdown that could determine PSU’s fate in the NCAA tournament.

The pledge reads as follows:

For the glory of Old State:
I pledge to foster a spirit
That empowers and educates.
I pledge to have dignity and respect
To honor those that came before
And those that will embrace
These principles in time.
I pledge that no act of mine
Will bring shame so that I may
Embody the character of Penn State.

Signees will be entered into a drawing for tours of the Bryce Jordan Center, Beaver Stadium, and the Lasch Football Building. In addition, free t-shirts will be available.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
