Fed, state tuition tug-of-war irritating Fed, state tuition tug-of-war irritating

Despite no '10 White House, PSU crowds will still be loud Despite no '10 White House, PSU crowds will still be loud

I agree that looking at our football schedule for this year, it is a little on the dull side. Most of our big games this year are on the road (Alabama, Iowa, and Ohio State), which will be a big test for our team, but I still have faith in our fans. The White House is a huge tradition for our fans [Read More]

More to Europe than meeting men More to Europe than meeting men

To hear everyone stateside tell it, every man in Europe is a.) rich b.) charming and c.) a cover model for Harlequin romance novels. By our estimations, the entire continent is populated solely with hot, romantic, sensitive-but-still-totally-manly men ready to sweep us onto Vespas and whisper sweet [Read More]

Tough-love bicycle approach the right way to go for PSU Tough-love bicycle approach the right way to go for PSU

I respectfully disagree with the opinion expressed in the July 15 editorial, "Confiscation unfair punishment." I believe that if you don't register your bike, Transportation Services has every right to confiscate it. Registering your bike is not a huge deal; the office is on campus, registration is [Read More]

Inflation letter misdirects anger at PSU athletic dept. Inflation letter misdirects anger at PSU athletic dept.

As much as the tuition increases pain me as well (and this is coming from an out-of-state student), I feel that Mr. Beckerman misses some points in his July 15 letter, "Raised tuition not reflecting changes in U.S. inflation rate." For one, tying tuition changes to inflation only makes sense if you [Read More]

PSU on-campus sustainability efforts overlook the obvious PSU on-campus sustainability efforts overlook the obvious
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
Over the past several weeks, the Collegian has published several articles highlighting the Campus Sustainability Office's push to conserve energy around campus. Yet, as a visitor to University Park this summer, it astounds me how low the air conditioning temperature is set across campus. Encouraging [Read More]

After financial issues will force the 128 S. Allen St. location to shut down at the end of July, Webster's needs to pull together and create a new financial model that will help keep the new location, wherever it may be, afloat. [Read More]

Webster's community help unfair to other defunct stores Webster's community help unfair to other defunct stores
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
Why does Webster's, a used-book and free-trade coffee store get to be bailed out? City Lights Records and Mike's Video, a used record store and a used video store, respectively, are staples of a town like Happy Valley. Correction: were staples. So, what happened to these once-proud "mom and pop" [Read More]

South African vuvuzela equal to Penn State South African vuvuzela equal to Penn State "We Are" cry
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
In regards to the July 13th letter "Column advocating vuvuzelas disrespectful towards others," while I must admit that I'm not the biggest fan of vuvuzelas, the accusation it is just a "huckster's variation on a New Year's noisemaker" is woefully ignorant. It is especially so because you don't [Read More]
