Our Jan./Feb. Issue Has Arrived

January 3, 2013 at 3:35 pm 4 comments

2012 J-F prez searchAmid the flurry of news—and the flurry of snow that hit State College—during the holidays, the January/February 2013 issues arrived in our office, and likely, in your mailbox around the same time.

We hope the cover illustration by David Plunkert grabs your attention, and that the story, “Looking for a Head of State” by former Chronicle of Higher Education staff writer Kathryn Masterson, offers some insight into the search for the next Penn State president—the first such search in 18 years.

In the issue you’ll also find “The No. 1 That Got Away,” about the infamous 1993 Penn State basketball game vs. Indiana in Rec Hall. The article by Ryan Jones ’95—coinciding with the 20th anniversary of that game—has already prompted a few notes from readers who not-so-fondly remember the heartbreaking loss.

The new issue also includes a profile of Kurt Moses ’11h, a Holocaust survivor who readers may remember from his many guest-speaking gigs in Penn State classes; a look at the Palmer Museum staff’s favorite works of art; and coverage of the Penn State Child Sexual Abuse Conference along with updates on the Sandusky scandal fallout. The letters section contains a number of comments from readers about our November/December interview with Board of Trustees Chair Karen Peetz ’77, an interview that provoked strong reactions among alumni.

Let us know what you think of the new issue. Comment below or email pennstaterletters@psu.edu.

    For what it’s worth, Hillary Rodham Clinton will be unemployed in a matter of months. Wish Penn State would ask and she would agree to move into Old Main.

  • […] The Nittany Lion basketball team is in Bloomington on Wednesday to take on No. 7 Indiana, which I’ll use as another excuse to expand on our feature on the ’93 Indiana-Penn State game that appears in our January/February issue. […]
