The Penn Stater Daily — April 7, 2014

What is “Should I watch Jeopardy tonight?” This answer is “yes,” if you want to see a fellow Penn Stater compete for top honors on the classic TV quiz show. Michelle Leppert ’92 of Danvers, Mass., will begin what we hope is a long run of success when Jeopardy starts a new week of shows Monday night.

A big night in the Big House: Michigan announced Monday that the Nittany Lions’ visit to Michigan Stadium on Oct. 11 will be a 7 p.m. kickoff, making it the first Big Ten night home game in Wolverine history. Of course, Penn State and Michigan have some history playing under the lights, including memorable home wins at Beaver Stadium in 2010 and 2013. As for the Big House, there were temporary lights up for the 3:30 kickoff back in 1994. Hopefully you remember how that one ended.

Joining the dance: THON’s spread isn’t just limited to the mini-THONs held at a growing number of middle and high schools. The Alumni Association’s Washington-Greene Counties Chapter recently held its “We, too, Can Dance” charity social. Inspired by Dance Marathon, the event raised $4,750 for the Four Diamonds Fund.

An honor for Mary Jo: The United States Basketball Writers Association announced over the weekend a new award will be named for Mary Jo Haverbeck ’76g, the women’s sports media pioneer who died in January. The Mary Jo Haverbeck Award will honor those who provide special service to writers covering women’s basketball.

The Penn Stater Daily — Oct. 15, 2013

From news to features, your daily dose of everything Penn State.

Nice catch: There are tons of great photos and videos all over the Web from Saturday’s four-overtime win against Michigan. But here’s one you probably haven’t seen: A cool time-lapse view of the sun setting over Beaver Stadium from The Citizen’s Voice.

Do ya think he’s sexy? Rod Stewart hit Happy Valley last night for a show at the BJC. Today’s Daily Collegian reports that Stewart rocked several brightly colored outfits and performed many of his biggest hits — and, according to what may be my favorite caption ever, he also “excited the older crowd by slightly pulling off his jacket.”


This is Jeopardy: Here’s hoping any Penn Staters who caught Jeopardy! last night got at least one question right. This morning, the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center (hint, hint) posted this photo to their Facebook page. The category: “State the State University.” Clever, Trebek.
