A Message From President Erickson

Taking a page straight out of his predecessor G-Span’s book of tricks, President Erickson left us this semester with a cheesy-yet-satisfying Penn State-style video message. Nestled in every Penn Stater’s inbox this morning, the video came with this message:

“This spring, we continue to celebrate the achievements of our students, faculty, and staff in academics, research, service, and athletics. Enjoy this brief video, which shows a few of the many ways that Penn Staters are making a difference in the world. Congratulations to our new graduates, and thank you for being a part of Penn State.”

Enjoy the rife stereotypes, ill-placed music, epic camera pan outs, and obligatory Commonwealth campus shoutout in the seasonal video:
