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

Shrine dedication: The Nittany Lion Shrine opened a few weeks ago after a summer of renovations—mostly to its “habitat,” if you will—but it was officially dedicated Friday. The stonemason said his goal was to create a “stoney, mountain-y environment.” The Daily Collegian has the coverage here.

A romantic at heart: Turns out that the Blue Band’s feature twirler, Matt Freeman, is as smooth off the field as he is on it. In this interview with Onward State, he answers questions about how he proposed to Blue Band majorette Meredith Semion, how he got into twirling, and—of course—the kind of dinosaur he would like to be.

Health care on campus: The hot issue on campus among faculty and staff recently has been changes to employee health benefits, particularly the requirements that we undergo biometric testing and fill out an extensive online questionnaire—and if we don’t, we pay an extra $1,200 a year. This piece from the New York Times does a nice job of putting the benefits issue into the larger context of rising health care costs.

Quite a streak: My colleague Ryan Jones ’95, who’s blogging for The Football Letter, wrote this great piece on Jim Rayburn ’62, who has seen 272 consecutive home football games. He’s going to miss Kent State this Saturday, but as his brother said, the important part wasn’t really the streak, but the experience of making the trip. I think we can all agree on that.
