As part of the NCAA consent decree, Penn State’s athletic integrity monitor George Mitchell has issued his first quarterly report on Penn State’s compliance.

The Penn State Women’s Soccer team landed in San Diego early Wednesday morning. They hope to bring back the program’s first ever NCAA Championship.
Everyone loves puppies. If there’s one thing that everyone can get behind — PS4RS, Karen Peetz, Evan Ponter, Michael Mauti, etc. — it’s that puppies are some of the most adorable things in the world. I’ve never met anyone that doesn’t love them, and the soft, warm feeling of a puppy can warm even the coldest hearts.

The sixth-ranked Lady Lions were upset by Miami (FL) 69-65 in last night’s ACC-Big Ten Challenge game. After trailing for the first 31 minutes, Penn State managed to battle its way back but could not pull out the victory in a game that was decided in the final seconds.
I didn’t grow up on Indian food — I didn’t even taste my first bite of it until a high school friend invited me over to his house. His mom would always insist on cooking for us, even if we weren’t hungry, creating a dazzling spread of naan, saag paneer, and lentils. The combination of warm spices and love are, what I think, the things that make Indian food so welcoming (especially on a cold day). India Pavilion is the epitome of what Indian food is all about.
