The Penn Stater Daily — Sept. 9, 2013

From news to features, your daily dose of everything Penn State.

His Number’s Up: The big news of the weekend came during halftime of the Nittany Lions’ win over Eastern Michigan, with the surprise announcement that John Cappelletti ’74 will be the first Penn State athlete—in any sport—to have his number retired. We’ll have more on that later today in our Weekend Sports Wrap.

Comm Dean to Retire: Doug Anderson, dean of the College of Communications since 1999, announced on Friday that he will retire at the end of the 2013–14 academic year. As a Comm alum who has volunteered at mentoring events over the years and briefly taught in the college, I can vouch for the ways Anderson has helped lead it forward. He’ll be missed.

The Cutest Guy on Campus: For our money, it’s Wynne (below), the 8-year-old yellow Labrador retriever who handles bomb-sniffing duties for the University Police department.

Making the Grade: The latest report from former Sen. George Mitchell offers high praise for the university’s progress in implementing the recommendations made by the Freeh Report.

Game-Day Priorities: A group of undergrads have come up with a solution to help fans deal with Beaver Stadium’s strict new bag policies; and meet the family that supplies the hundreds of Porta-Potties used by Penn State tailgaters.
