Penn State within its rights to take unregistered bicycles Penn State within its rights to take unregistered bicycles
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
I can understand that some people may feel like they haven't been given enough notice before having their bikes confiscated, but I remember hearing the same whines from freshmen being caught off-guard by a due date not bolded on the syllabus or pounded into their heads by the professor. Get over it. [Read More]

Obama let oil spill opportunity pass by Obama let oil spill opportunity pass by

In the weeks following the oil spill, many public figures -- mostly Republican -- blamed President Barack Obama for not responding quickly enough to the accident, but I think their anger is misdirected. [Read More]

Vuvuzelas don't make noise, only echoes external sounds Vuvuzelas don't make noise, only echoes external sounds
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
For the sake of accuracy, I must say that vuvuzelas do not amplify sound, which was debated in the July 9 point-counterpoint. They are passive resonators, and they do not have their own energy source. The only energy to produce the sound is supplied externally by the person blowing into the [Read More]

Raised tuition not reflecting changes in U.S. inflation rate Raised tuition not reflecting changes in U.S. inflation rate
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
After reading "Tuition rise pricing out students," the question is what does Penn State do with the money it receives? The 2010 national inflation rate is about 2 percent. In 2009 it was negative. Shouldn't trustees limit tuition raises to no more than the national inflation rate? How much goes to [Read More]

Drinking latent motive of move Drinking latent motive of move
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
Does one week really make that much of a difference for summer-long construction projects, downtown retailers and students moving out? Apparently -- at least, they're all good excuses in an attempt to cover a very transparent, "Let's curb the drinking problem at Penn State" public relations move by [Read More]

Excessive Bieber hype confusing Excessive Bieber hype confusing
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
I do not hate Justin Bieber nor do I deny his success. While the following column may speak of Mr. Bieber somewhat critically, it would be hypocritical to say that I don't enjoy some of his music. That being said, if you like Justin Bieber, you may hate me. [Read More]

Spanier fails to realize week is about friends, not drinking Spanier fails to realize week is about friends, not drinking
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
In the attempt to end a drinking ritual, Penn State President Graham Spanier fails to recognize the most important role of Senior Week: the opportunity to say goodbye to four years of friends. By eliminating the entire week between finals and graduation, many students will end up taking finals one [Read More]

PSU commitment questioned with bike website still down PSU commitment questioned with bike website still down
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
When you quoted a student as having registered his bike online in the "University to enforce bike rules" article in the July 13 newspaper, I rushed to the Transportation Services website to see. Alas, the online registration function is still temporarily unavailable. I called the parking office a [Read More]

When the Penn State Board of Trustees unanimously voted to increase tuition Friday, it was just the latest weight placed on students' rising costs for higher education. [Read More]

Facebook causing relationship issues Facebook causing relationship issues
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
According to an article in The Philadelphia Inquirer, Facebook is increasingly becoming a factor involved in divorce. One man, Ken Savage, turned his ruined relationship status into a website to help others being cheated on via Facebook by creating facebookcheating.com. [Read More]

Column advocating vuvuzelas disrespectful towards others Column advocating vuvuzelas disrespectful towards others
483 weeks ago - The Daily Collegian Online
I read with disappointment the July 9 opinion piece "Vuvuzelas are humming in Africa and Penn State." The disappointment comes because it seems to promote no sense of respect for others' need for peace and quiet. You seem interested only in your own fun and excusing or justifying like-minded others.
