On second thought: The buzz around here yesterday morning was the news that Friday would bring the naming of a new president. But by afternoon, the Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for Friday morning had been cancelled. According to a university announcement, the meeting was “delayed indefinitely to allow for further consideration on the matter.” An executive session will be held Friday, but it will not be open to the public. Read more of the Centre Daily Times’ coverage here, and, as always, stay tuned for more updates.

Ahead of the game: This bodes well for the Lady Lions’ upcoming season: Senior guard Maggie Lucas was selected as the Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year, and Penn State was picked to finish second in the conference. The season kicks off on Friday, Nov. 8, when the Lady Lions take on St. Francis at home

Up to bat: Last week, I told you about the cool Research Unplugged talk I attended, all about movie music. Today’s RU event is Halloween-themed—and sounds pretty interesting, too. The talk is called “The Secret Lives of Bats: Why Bats Matter and How We Can Help Them,” and Michael Gannon, a biology prof, and Doug Wentzel ’89, program director for the Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center, will talk about the disease endangering Pennsylvania’s bat population. Head over to the Schlow Library at 12:30 p.m. if you’re interested. (Pro tip: Get there early for free Irving’s bagels!)

It’s dark, dreary, windy, stormy, and [insert any adjective commonly used in ghost stories here]. I have a feeling Instagram and Twitter will be exploding with spooky pics of campus all day today. Check out this pic from outside the Chambers Building, tweeted by the College of Education earlier this morning. Yikes.
