July-August Issue On Its Way
Alumni Association members should be getting their copy of the July-August issue soon—our office copies arrived yesterday, which is always a sign that the magazine is in the mail.
Our cover story is a photo essay made up of shots of University Park taken by Andy Colwell (a student who shoots for Penn State Live) and me from the air. This past April, I hired a helicopter from a company called Cherokee Helicopter in Ford City, Pa., invited Andy to join me, and up we went. Quite possibly the most fun assignment that either of us has ever done!
Click on the opening spread above to see it bigger. That’s one of Andy’s photos, and it’s great.
You can see some of the same photos we used in the story, as well as quite a few that we weren’t able to include, by going to the magazine’s Facebook page and clicking on the Photos tab. (If you click the “Like” button at the top of our Facebook page, you can become our fan and get regular updates from us.) And you can see about a dozen of Andy’s shots at Penn State Live.
We hope to follow up with some aerial photos of other Penn State campuses in a future issue—possibly next spring.
