Inside the May/June Issue
The May/June 2015 issue of The Penn Stater is en route to your mailbox, and we think you’re going to like it. The Penn State women’s rugby team made the cover and for good reason: They may just be the greatest college sports dynasty that you’ve never heard of. Ryan Jones ’95 Com spent some time with the legendary program — luckily, he wasn’t hurt during the reporting process — and found out there’s a lot more behind its success besides a flawless record. For the images on the cover, shot for us by photographer Bill Cardoni, we saw value in not Photoshopping out the bumps and bruises on these tough student-athletes.
Another highlight in this issue is the “College Jobs” feature on p. 32, starring … you! We asked readers to tell us about their most interesting college jobs — and we weren’t disappointed. From working in the kitchen of the Nittany Lion Inn to driving the Loop around town, we learned that there are plenty of ways to earn a buck in a college town.
You’ll also find a Q&A with Steven Zarit, one of the leading researchers of Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other elder-care issues. The Penn State distinguished professor offers invaluable advice and resources for caregivers.
Also in this issue: The professor who helped shape the Shake Shack burger empire; an anthropologist who is featured in a PBS series; the first Nittany Lion to make it to the NHL; a track and field star with Olympic hopes; and more.
