Four sports reporters with Collegian experience who have covered PSU football over decades will tell their gridiron tales during a panel in the Bellisario College of Communications on Oct. 23 as part of the celebration of The Daily Collegian’s 135th anniversary.
The panel, titled, “Stories from the Penn State Football Beat,” will feature John Black (’62) retired editor of The Football Letter, Mark Wogenrich (’90), Sports Illustrated, and Daily Collegian sports staffers Seth Engle and Max Ralph.
The panel will begin at 10 a.m. Before that, beginning at 9 a.m., there will be coffee and bagels at the Bellisario. Afterwards, beginning around 11 a.m., tour guides will show guests the new Bellisario College of Communications facilities and the new Collegian offices.
The Collegian Alumni Interest Group (AIG), which has organized the 135th anniversary celebration events, is asking those attending to donate $135 for tickets.
All of the money raise through that event and two other fundraisers will go to a project to be chosen by The Collegian students.
Anniversary reunion events will begin Oct. 21 when ticket holders will have the opportunity to march with the Collegian AIG contingent in the Homecoming Parade and attend a party afterward sponsored by the Alumni Association.
The Collegian AIG has reserved a block of rooms at the Hyatt Place in Downtown State College at the rate of $259 a night, which is a great bargain during Homecoming. The AIG is asking those who get these rooms to make a donation. To get the codes for these rooms, click on the link and hit the tickets button, then send an email to CollegianAIG@gmail.com, and the AIG will send the code and instructions.
