President Barron To Students: Be Responsible If You Celebrate Tonight

Last time news about sanction removal was announced, students went out and had some fun with it. And that was on a Monday.

After today’s Board of Trustees meeting, President Eric Barron advised students not to make Penn State look bad if they choose to celebrate, citing September’s peaceful rally as an example of how to act.

“Our students last time acted with a high level of enthusiasm but also with a great deal of respect,” Barron said. “And although I think I told you that I was always worried about such an activity, I was very pleased by their behavior, and I hope that from every inch of my body that I can be equally proud today.”

Barron’s pride about the last rally was validated by the State College Police Chief himself, Tom King. A rally for tonight at 9 p.m. at Old Main has already gained huge traction on YikYak, so, students, let’s not do anything stupid that gets us bad national headlines.

“This is something to be very happy about,” Barron said. “It is not something that should promote any sort of destructive behavior in any way shape or form.”

“That would be disappointing.”
