“Remember JoePa” Graphics Appear On Campus

As I passed Willard on my way to class today, I spotted a black design spray-painted on the sidewalk. I did a double-take upon realizing that yes, the design depicts the most famous face in Penn State history.

The graphic, pictured right, contains a single word below the face of Joe Paterno, urging us to “remember.” As you can see, it’s a little smaller than my size 8.5 Nikes, but large enough to catch the eye of a passer-by.

Similar graphics also appeared near Carnegie Building and in a Bigler Hall elevator.

While we have yet to find out who spray-painted the graphics, one has to wonder about their motivation to make such a statement. Nobody will forget what Joe Paterno accomplished at Penn State University, regardless of where he stands now in the aftermath of the Sandusky scandal. I have supported Coach Paterno’s contributions to Penn State like many other students, and I’m not sure the word “remember” fits here.
