Students, faculty and staff at Penn State Beaver are invited to join the campus at 7 p.m. on Feb. 2 in the Student Union Building Lodge as it embarks on an evening of food and conversation, featuring a group of community members in costume playing some of the most iconic African-Americans of the 20th century.
Penn State Beaver is looking for a responsible and charismatic student to don the Nittany Lion suit and represent Penn State Beaver at campus and community events. Should not be ashamed to dance badly in public.
Eighteen students participated in Beaver's Dec. 16 ceremony, receiving degrees in administration of justice, business, communications, information sciences and technology, and psychology. Administration of justice major Robert Chamberlain served as the campus' first student speaker.
Beaver alumna Jamie Silicki has been elected board president of a Pittsburgh-based domestic violence nonprofit, and during her yearlong appointment, she plans to make increased awareness of domestic violence "everybody's problem."
