Inside Our March/April 2016 Issue
We blinked and it was the end of February, which means that our latest issue will be headed your way any day now. For our cover story, Ryan Jones talked to five Muslim students at Penn State and learned about what life is like on campus, and in America, today. The interview, “People Have to Understand Who We Are,” starts on p. 28.
You’ll also find a feature on the Nittany Lion baseball team, which traveled to Havana in November to play against professional teams from Cuba. Penn State journalism students and faculty were there to document the historic trip.
Later in the issue, “On the Right Path” shares the stories of nine alums who followed unconventional routes to land the jobs of their dreams.
Don’t miss the interview with Chewbacca—er, rather, Joonas Suotamo ’08, the former basketball player-turned-actor who played him in Star Wars: The Force Awakens—on p. 24. The magazine also includes a recap of President Barron’s recent entrepreneurial trail; a look at freshman wrestling standout Bo Nickal; and a profile on award-winning medical student Allison Cleary.
