Inside Our May/June Issue

The Finals Countdown

Our May/June cover will no doubt rekindle some memories of Finals Week—when it sometimes felt like you’d never get out from under the pressures of studying. Others have different memories, whether it was because of scrambling to make it to the right room assignment or talking your way into a grade by visiting a professor’s office hours after the fact—or even because the week culminated with wedding bells following your last final—tales of finals week memories run the gamut. See how Penn Staters remember the experience in our collection of “Finals Week Memories,” starting on p. 54.

Also in this issue, you’ll meet Gillian Albinski ’93, an alum who knows a thing or two about surviving a zombie apocalypse. See how this Penn Stater helps prop up The Walking Dead and more of your favorite shows in “The End of the World as She Knows It” (p. 46). And see how a dozen university experts frame “The Immigration Debate:” from political and ethical angles to health care and higher education concerns (p. 45).

Plus see what lessons Penn State researchers are learning from a newly discovered coral reef in Colombia (p. 62), how wrestler Bo Nickal secured another NCAA championship for the Nittany Lions (p.26), and how a student is using art to overcome a disability—and gaining some national acclaim (p. 16).

It’s all in our May/June 2018 issue, arriving in mailboxes soon.

John Colaneri Fixes America’s Most Desperate Kitchens

If you’re a fan of the show America’s Most Desperate Kitchens on HGTV, you probably already know that season two kicks off tonight. One of the show’s two co-hosts, John Colaneri, is a Penn Stater who we featured in our January/February 2015 issue. Here’s what we wrote about him back then:

John Colaneri just won’t leave the kitchen. HGTV announced in December that Colaneri ’03 Lib and his cousin Anthony Carrino, co-stars of the hit renovation series Kitchen Cousins, will star in yet another new show on the network next year. America’s Most Desperate Kitchens will be the cousins’ fourth HGTV show, following prior spinoffs Cousins on Call and Cousins Undercover. When they’re not on camera together, Colaneri (he’s the one on the left) and Carrino can be found partnering on projects for New Jersey-based Brunelleschi Construction.

If you’ve never seen the show before, you can check out a preview at the top of the post. Season two of America’s Most Desperate Kitchens will kick off on HGTV tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
