September/October Issue Headed Your Way

Yes, we know it’s football season. But it’s going to be an important year for the men’s basketball team, too, which is why our September/October issue—which should be arriving in your mailbox any day now, depending on where you live—has a couple of basketball players on the cover.

On the left is senior guard Talor Battle, who’s possibly the best player in Penn State history. On the right is his little brother, Taran Buie, a freshman guard who’s probably the most highly touted recruit in the program’s history. Inside, senior editor Ryan Jones ’95 tells the story of their family’s journey to State College and explains why the brothers mean so much to the basketball team, which followed up its 2009 NIT championship with a 20-loss season.

Among the other goodies you’ll find in this issue:

—Stories from alumni explaining how they became Penn Staters. (And next week on the blog, we magazine staffers who are alums will tell you our stories, too.)

—Additional coverage from Tina Hay ’83 about the Alumni Association’s trip to Europe.

—And of course there’s some football, too. We’ve got a piece on Bud Meredith, the University’s ticket manager for the past 44 years, and an essay by Michael Weinreb ’94 pondering the big-picture significance of the 1986 Orange Bowl team and 1987 national championship team.

    As usual, this was another great issue! I read it from cover to cover the day I received it. Although all the articles and news were great, I particularly enjoyed “The Road to Penn State” on pages 42-49. I liked hearing what led students to State. I was equally fascinated with Tina Hay’s “From the Editor” on page 5. Among so many other accolades–e.g., well-written, humorous–it was très intéressant! (Now, if only I could post some of the issue’s content on Facebook for non-alumni friends to enjoy.)
