My gay friend Jack has been obsessed with Betty White since high school. Honestly, he had Betty fever long before she made her sudden comeback at the ripe old age of 88. It's hard to mark the exact moment when my love for this white-haired lady came into my life, but if I don't count all the [Read More]

Monday's lottery for the Penn State vs. Alabama game left some students both empty-handed and frustrated by the university.

Penn State going cage free should be an easy decision Penn State going cage free should be an easy decision

I cannot believe that there is still a battle over the topic of Penn State going cage free or not. Clearly cage free is the way to be. There are plenty of studies that support the fact that eggs produced by hens locked up in battery cages are far less healthy than those that come from hens that have [Read More]

In general, I agree with the use of a lottery system for selling sporting event tickets. It's how a large portion of tickets will be sold for the 2011 Nation Hockey League Winter Classic game that will be held in Pittsburgh on New Year's Day. A lottery system helps to address which Penguins fans or [Read More]

Unfortunately, such concessions to human decency [Read More]

As an alumnus who was involved in THON for all of my four years at Penn State, as a committee member, a dancer and a captain, I have heard many times that THON is not about the competition. I have also heard many times that THON is not about the money. [Read More]

After being extended last spring, the White Loop's hours are being cut back -- but only slightly. The bus now only runs until 4 a.m. Thursday through Saturday instead of the previous hours until 4:30 a.m run time. The extension program itself has shown great success. [Read More]

In response to Mr. Ghrayep's letter, "Islamophobia shows in issue"I first want to come out and say that I understand that Islam is at its core a peaceful religion.
