Jordan Lucas makes good: When we profiled Jordan Lucas in our Nov./Dec. 2012 issue, he was best known as the first recruit to commit to Bill O’Brien. He played sparingly as a true freshman last fall, and it was hard to say how much he’d be able to contribute to the Nittany Lions this season, or beyond. Happily—even as the Lions’ defense has struggled this fall—Lucas has been one of the bright spots. He’s the subject of an ESPN.com feature that shows a kid with lots of personality, a terrific work ethic, and a “competitive toughness” that has made him one of O’Brien’s favorite players.

100 Days ’til THON: As THON has grown, so has the significance of hitting the century mark in the annual countdown to THON weekend. This year, that’s today. Onward State is all over it, from a busy schedule of events to a list of “100 Reasons Why We Dance.”

Internationally known: A survey by the Institute of International Education lists Penn State 10th among all U.S universities in international student enrollment. A record 6,693 international students were enrolled at University Park in 2012–13.

You look like a guy I know…: Tommy Olczyk gets that a lot. The Daily Collegian profiles the ice hockey team captain, the son of former NHL standout and NBC hockey analyst Ed Olczyk, whose face appears prominently on the hockey schedule posters that are in storefront windows all over town. Of course, it’s possible that alumni who’ve seen our Sept./Oct. issue also recognize him from our cover.
