Learning the financial ropes


Randall Woolridge, director of the Smeal College Trading Room at University Park, explains how to use the financial trading stations, which are equipped as a trading desk would be in a Wall Street firm. The Trading Room functions as a classroom as well as a research facility, and gives students access to the standard Wall Street data. Only a handful of other business colleges around the country, including Wake Forest, Carnegie Mellon, MIT and Cornell, have trading rooms. The University Park facility officially opened April 20.

Past and present


State Rep. Lynn Herman of Philipsburg, far right, had a personal interest in unveiling a historical marker commemorating Oak Cottage, the first permanent building on Penn State's University Park campus. Herman's great-great-great grandfather, John Herman, and his family were the first to occupy the cottage. Several of John Herman's descendants attended the ceremony. Below is a closeup of the marker and the bottom photo shows Oak Cottage, right, before it was moved in 1889.
