Grief is not an emotion I expected to experience in college. I struggled to discuss my feelings with classmates who had never considered their parents’ mortality. A friend of mine suggested that I join a bereavement group; oddly enough, his grandfather met a new love interest at a widow support meeting in New York. There was just one small problem — there were no public or student loss groups within 100 miles of my rural university.
On Saturday September 1, the Penn State Nittany Lions will host the Ohio University Bobcats in their first football game of the season. While much has been said about the redesigned Penn State uniforms making their inaugural appearance this weekend, little has been mentioned regarding the origin of the blue ribbons now featured on the back of my schoolmates’ helmets.

Concerned about getting the most from the least? Many of today’s contemporary artists are creating efficient solutions for life’s necessities. This class creatively examines the essential foundations of food, shelter, and clothing through the works of different artists.
This blueprint design focuses on the mystery surrounding the 1911 theft of the Mona Lisa. Created by the tour directors in Paris, France, students will experience place-based learning along with Goal Based Scenarios (GBS) while receiving clues to solve the mystery. Students will “check out” an iPad 2 device from the tour director and use a pre-loaded augmented reality technology for their investigations. This tool will provide access to a Mona Lisa Mystery channel housed on an augmented reality (AR) browser (such as Junaio).
