The reunion and celebration of The Daily Collegian’s 135th anniversary is 10 months away, which means if you reserve your room now, you can get a reduced rate!
The Collegian Alumni Interest Group (AIG) has reserved a block of rooms for the weekend of Oct. 22, 2022 at the Hyatt Place in Downtown State College, just a couple of blocks from campus.
To get a room at the reduced rate, call central reservations at 1-888-492-8847 and reference the group name – Collegian AIG — in addition to the code G-CAIG.

Or reserve your spot online at To receive the group discount when booking online, you will need to type in the code G-CAIG under the “Corporate or Group Code” option from the drop-down menu (which is listed as the last one) beneath the dates.
Individual reservations do not go through Hyatt Sales, so please use the phone number above or the website for booking.
The reduced rate is $259 a night for single or double occupancy. This is not a home game weekend, so you can reserve a room for one night rather than being forced to book for two.

I started my journalism career at The Daily Collegian, where I covered cops, "radicals and minorities," and served as editorial page editor. After graduation, I worked as a reporter and feature writer for two community papers, The Tribune-Review and the Beaver County Times, before being hired by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I worked for the Post-Gazette for 27 years as a reporter, assistant city editor and editorial page writer. For a decade I covered issues regarding children and families, and a series of stories I wrote, along with a court case I persuaded the Post-Gazette to pursue, led to an order opening to the press and public dependency hearings in Pennsylvania juvenile court. In 2007, I began working as a blog writer for the United Steelworkers Union, composing blogs and op-eds that were published in the name of the union's international president. I am now retired and working as a consultant for The Pittsburgh Foundation's communications department.
