    sure what to expect when we scheduled a photo shoot with the Nittany Lion for our Nov Dec cover Would he show up at Hintz Family Alumni Center dressed in his fur Would he have an entourage The fall is his busiest time of year how long would he actually be able to stay Photographer Bill Cardoni arrived early that October morning to set up the backdrop and test the lighting Shortly after the student arrived in his street clothes with a bag over his shoulders he said hello shook hands and carried in a few extra props that we still needed for the story We thought that he was making an extra trip out to his car but then he disappeared I glanced at my phone and saw this text message from him I m almost done getting dressed Any last minute things you need to communicate before I can t talk Photograph by CARDONI Well didn t see that one coming I replied I think we re good We ll direct you in the shoot And about five minutes after sending that text the Lion came bouncing into the conference room He clapped his hands as if he were arriving at Beaver Stadium and even passed out Penn State buttons to us The student with whom I had been working on the story was nowhere to be seen but the Lion had arrived Later in the shoot the photographer asked the Lion to jump The Lion nodded OK gave a quick glance over his shoulder and didn t just jump but totally stuck a backflip When we asked him to hold the cowbell for a picture he couldn t help but bang on it and look toward us to deliver the P S U chant And when he put on the Thriller jacket he danced as if he was in front of 94 000 fans Suffice it to say it was a pretty fun photo shoot And when it was time to go the Lion grabbed his things motioned to all of us goodbye a pat on the back a kiss on the hand a big wave from his furry paw and he was gone Amy Downey senior editor Share this Email Print Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Tumblr Like this Like Loading November 13 2015 at 10 46 am 1 comment The Nittany Lion s Extra Props In our latest cover story Props to the Lion p 40 we pored over two dozen props and accessories of the Penn State mascot There were a few more items that we couldn t quite fit into the feature and because their stories are simply way too fun to leave out here they are Arguably the biggest prop of the well lion s share is the Michigan State Spartan chariot Michael Valania 15 and his roommate built it by collecting pallet boards from loading docks around campus Because of its size it s parked in the cheerleading locker room at

  • A Classroom Discussion on the Week’s Events | The Penn Stater Magazine
    the Richards know that their caring and insight has helped 700 and one Gisèle 85 2 Theresa Langdon November 11 2011 at 3 30 pm Maybe the one thing that was left out is our identity as human beings It s larger than Penn State Theresa Langdon 3 Julie November 11 2011 at 5 02 pm When I was thinking about this scandal one of my many hours of thoughts was how are they going to discuss this in class and I wonder what it would be like in Sam Richard s class I think Sam Laurie summarized this well It s definitely something non Penn Staters have difficulty understanding Thanks for providing that answer Julie Class of 2006 4 jls November 11 2011 at 5 41 pm I m a non Penn Stater and I completely understand the conflict you all feel I too think Joe Paterno was treated unfairly We don t have all of the facts yet The media was on a witch hunt and who more famous to go after than an 84 year old football coach that has been the face of Penn State for more than half of his life I also understand the atrocities that occurred to those boys You can feel sympathy for the victims while feeling sympathy for a good man who made a mistake He is not the perpetrator and the media led everyone to believe Joe was the villain It s amazing how a group of powerful people like the board of trustees can be bullied by the media Meanwhile your tuition will go to the defense of the two men who were obligated to do more That is the disgrace in this 5 Donnabeth Murphy November 11 2011 at 5 57 pm Gray areas and sitting with something don t fit in with the rapid news cycle I appreciate this insight Students were still grappling with awful news when they acted out They were identified immediately as Paterno sympathizers not a bad thing before last week The pundits are still feasting and subtleties are casualties Donnabeth PSU class of 2015 Mom 6 David November 11 2011 at 10 27 pm I am a long distance alumi 1998 and live in California now I feel all those and more Thank you for this article and your insight into this situation 7 SOC 119 lecture on the Penn State crisis November 12 2011 at 1 17 am present and who did an amazing job of capturing the nuance of some of what we were saying A Classroom Discussion on the Week s Events by Lori Shontz Senior Editor Penn Stater 8 Anonymous November 12 2011 at 4 35 am I have one more perspective I m an educator and KNOW how things get covered up when the higher ups don t want to a believe bad news or b act on it I m not a PSU alum and I really feel for the grad student that witnessed and reported the crime All the cover up is absurd Thanks for the insight Quite helpful 9 Lori Shontz November 12 2011 at 12 26 pm I just wanted to thank you all for reading and for your thoughtful comments I am sure that Sam and Laurie appreciate that their lessons are reaching beyond their physical classroom Lori 10 Penn State fan November 12 2011 at 1 00 pm I am concerned about the OWS gang starting a riot at the game How can you keep them out They would LOVE to get the media attention and exploit this very unfortunate situation Please be vigilant as these protestors can get very violent Thanks and I hope today s game can reveal the BEST part of Penn State 11 Sam Richards November 12 2011 at 1 45 pm Thanks for your thoughtful comments and thank you to Lori for this excellent summary of a complex class about an extremely troubling situation that is not at all easy to discuss with nuance and subtlety especially in front of 700 people Our students are pretty savvy and smart and in spite of the rioting by a relative few that seemed to be more an expression of grief than it was a statement of support for an icon they are hungry for guidance for how to move forward and grow through this I ve been impressed 12 jls November 12 2011 at 2 54 pm Is there any video of your class I know I would love to see it as I m sure others would as well 13 Katrina Rothwell November 12 2011 at 4 20 pm I am a Penn State Alumni and I can just remember what Soc119 was like when I took this class Sam n Laurie YOU ROCK Not just because you are unafraid to discuss the issues but because you bring people into a place that allow them to deal with themselves and the very internal turmoil that we may feel around something like this Trying to wrap your mind around how something like this could happen in Happy Valley is difficult to do when your in a place of self discovery and You hold Penn State to such a high standard I am praying for all of the students faculty and victims of this horrible crime Sam and Laurie thank you for helping us to think critically 14 Sharon Basile Freeark 83 November 12 2011 at 4 39 pm Thank you for posting this moving story the very words and understanding I have been searching for all week I graduated in 1983 and have lived in CA ever since It doesn t matter how long you ve been gone or how far away you live You still ARE Penn State In addition to feeling like our identities are wrapped up in all of this for those of us around when Jerry Sandusky coached another horror is that he is the last person you would ever believe to be a
