Jay-running: His political aspirations were long-rumored, and on Thursday, Jay Paterno ’91 confirmed them: he’s running for the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor. In launching his candidacy (and his website), Paterno wrote, “I am not a politician, but someone from a family dedicated to hard work, public service, and charity to all.” The Democratic primary is set for May 20.
K-9s on campus: University Police this week hosted a training exercise for K-9 units, which gives us an excuse to post this great shot of Rudie, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois who helps keep campus safe. Thanks to our buddy Bill Zimmerman for the shot.
Exit interview: With just a few months left in his presidency, Rodney Erickson sat with Daily Collegian reporter Katie Murt earlier this week to talk about his tenure and offer thoughts on incoming president Eric Barron. It’s worth a read.
Restless Robinson: So: Michael Robinson ’04 on The Young & The Restless? Michael Robinson on The Young & The Restless.
Happy THON: With the latest edition of the world’s largest student-run philanthropy kicking off later today, here’s a cool feature on the Penn State Schuylkill students who are among the thousands who will cram into the BJC this weekend. Best of luck to everyone involved.
