Penn State joined the Big Ten in 1990. Along with the athletic benefits that came from joining a major conference, our Sept./Oct. 1994 issue points out that there were academic benefits that came with the move. Namely, Penn State joined the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, which is made up of every Big Ten school and the University of Chicago. Here’s what then-executive vice president and provost John Brighton had to say about the CIC:

“The academic implications of the Big Ten and the CIC are far more important than the athletic implications, though the two are not in conflict or competition. The vastness and magnitude of CIC efforts will help us improve the way we do things. We are are now exchanging ideas—on a regular basis—with a group of schools that rank among the best research universities in the country.”

This issue also includes a look at some of the diners that used to be in State College, which was a diner hotbed. There is also a profile on author Alecia Swasy ’85, a story on beagles tasked with sniffing out agricultural contraband, and a collection of the best student poetry from the College of the Liberal Arts’ Katey Lehman Creative Writing Awards.

Do you have a copy of the issue? If so, we’d love to see it. Feel free to post it on our Facebook wall, or send a tweet to @PennStaterMag.
