Inside our March/April Issue

MA19_Cover_BlogFaithful readers of this blog already know about Derrick Campana ’01, so you’ll be pleased to see that he not only made it into the magazine, but snagged our cover—with a little help from Petey. Campana has carved out a niche for himself in the field of orthotics for animals—mostly pets, but some wild animals, too. Learn about his story and how a chance meeting led to a brand-new career field.

Also in this issue: One of the greatest sportsmen of his day, Steve Hamas has been relegated largely to Penn State boxing lore. Learn about the versatile athlete who played in the nascent NFL and beat former world heavyweight champion Max Schmeling in the ring. We also feature poems and photos from Pennsylvania’s fracking fields, as documented by two Penn State professors who recently published the book Shale Play: Poems and Photographs from the Fracking Fields.

Also inside: Meet Rhea Sullivan, a former THON fundraiser-turned-medical student who’s hoping to make a breakthrough in the fight against cancer; catch up with swimmer Nikolette Nolte, whose own battle against cancer has inspired the social media hashtag #NikiStrong; find out former hoops star John Amaechi’s favorite spot on campus; and discover the Penn State connection to the Philadelphia Flyers’ new mascot, Gritty.

All that and more in our March/April issue.
