Penn State Loses, Even Before the Game

By Allison Bail On September - 24 - 2009
At 3:00 am on Sunday morning, Pittsburgh native Joseph Dado was seen leaving a local fraternity house en route to his dorm. He wasn't seen or heard from after. Monday afternoon, helicopters and policemen searched the Penn State campus for the missing freshman. By 6:00 pm on Monday evening, Dado was found dead in an exterior stairwell on campus. Dado had died of severe head trauma. His death was ruled an accident from an autopsy performed on Tuesday. Dado's death has critically impacted the student community in many ways. It not only opened our eyes to the seriousness that can come from drinking, ...

It was cool to see their love for the game. I guess the 1st and 2nd stringers didn't want to go out that night. I'm sure that they were going over plays and strategies for the BIG game against Syracuse on Saturday.  I had recently ...

Tailgating Vs. Football

By Allison Bail On September - 8 - 2009
The Nittany Lions first game against Akron on Saturday was a great start to the season with the Lions winning 31-7. Everyone in attendance was loud, hype, and energetic...as usual. Although, there was something that was a little off about the first game. I noticed that the student section wasn't completely full. This was odd considering it was the first game of the season. Many factors could have contributed to this absence of students. Could it have been too hot outside for students to endure? Was tailgating too intense? Was it the fact that Akron wasn't such a big match-up? Frank Augustine (Junior-Marketing) said that ...
