The Penn Stater Daily — April 2, 2014
The fight for funding: A group of Penn State students and alumni (and the Nittany Lion) rallied in Harrisburg yesterday, hoping to earn more state funding for Penn State. At yesterday’s Capital Day, Alumni Association President Kay Salvino ’69 talked to the crowd about “the power of Penn State’s network” before introducing student leaders, including UPUA rep John Wortman. “Recent cuts have mitigated the affordability of Penn State,” Wortman said. “And my grandfather and parents probably wouldn’t be able to come here today.”
Erickson looks back: With just over a month left as president, Rodney Erickson is reflecting on the legacy he leaves behind. Erickson talked to staffers from Onward State about taking over post-Sandusky scandal, Eric Barron, and his plans for retirement (i.e., lots and lots of travel). Also: Be sure to check out our own Q&A with Rod Erickson in the upcoming May/June issue.
From a distance: Here’s a cool story about World Campus students who are connecting through some interesting student clubs and organizations — and the many (virtual) ways they stay in touch.
