Allen Robinson was drafted 61st overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Albert Lord, Bob Jubelirer and Alice Pope have won this year’s alumni Board of Trustees election, giving PS4RS its second straight sweep.
The Board of Trustees had a surprise for outgoing President Rodney Erickson at today’s meeting. The Penn State Food Science building, which houses the Berkey Creamery and the Department of Food Science labs and facilities, will be renamed to the Rodney A. Erickson Food Science Building.
There are all sorts of places to get breakfast in State College, but Naked Egg Cafe is no doubt the best.
Rodney Erickson certainly sent a lot of emails during his two and a half year presidency, and today might have been his last to the student body. With graduation weekend underway and Erickson’s last day in Old Main set for Monday, Penn State’s 17th president sent what is likely the final email to the students he has worked with for 37 years.
Don’t worry about what you should be doing, or how what you’re doing is going to fit into the cadre of college—or Penn State, for that matter—predetermined by our culture. Go make your own Penn State, without any expectations; you’ll be much happier.
Go to parties. Go to games. Go to class when you can. If there’s a concert, go to that. Do bar crawls. Climb Mount Nittany. Get involved with clubs and other stuff around campus. Hell, if you and your roommate want to go get lunch in Pittsburgh, get in a car and go to Pittsburgh. Doing spontaneous stuff is the best thing about college. So do spontaneous stuff. Worry about real life later. It’s more fun that way.
