Inside Our Sept./Oct. Issue

August 25, 2015 at 10:50 am 10 comments

SO_cover[1]Alumni association members should be getting our Sept./Oct. issue any day now. On the cover is Caroline Bowman ’10—otherwise known as Elphaba the witch in Broadway’s Wicked. Photographer Michael Lavine captured the actress in her New York dressing room before the show—and before her nightly coating of green body paint. In “The Great (Blue and) White Way,” senior editor Ryan Jones caught up with Bowman and other theater alums making names for themselves on Broadway and beyond.

Also featured in this issue: Former Nittany Lion and NFL linebacker Tim Shaw ’06 opens up about his battle with ALS.

You’ll also find a collection of campus memories from the class of 1965. Find out what happened when a student tried stealing a case of beer out of the gymnastics coach’s garage, along with other college hijinks, in “Fraternity Dogs & Elevator Tricks.” (Artist Scotty Reifsnyder did an awesome job illustrating these stories.)

More highlights: A look at the 2015 Women’s World Cup, which featured a number of Penn Staters, including two members of the all-conquering U.S. team; an interview with Jay Paterno ’91 about a new namesake beer; and a conversation with “career student” Jesse Scott ’03a, ’06, ’10g, who has been taking classes for 14 years.
