Way to go, Joe
A larger-than-life, bronze sculpture
of Joe Paterno, commissioned by Friends of Joe and Sue Paterno and Penn
State, was erected Nov. 2 outside the east side of Beaver Stadium on
the University Park campus. The statue, honoring Paterno's contributions
to the University and his becoming the NCAA Division I-A all-time victories
leader with 324 victories, is approximately 7 feet tall and weighs almost
1,000 pounds. The sculptor, Angelo DiMaria of Bush Designs of Reading,
took nearly three months to complete the work. On the walls surrounding
the statue are plaques commemorating the results of each of the 421
games since Paterno became head coach in 1966. To view more photos,

some of the trees are stubbornly hanging onto their foliage, the majority
are greeting November with bare limbs.

One road closes, another opens
Halloween brought more than trick-or-treaters
to the University Park campus. On Oct. 31, the new Curtin Road entrance
to the campus from Atherton Street opened to traffic, above, while the
old Pollock Road-Atherton Street intersection closed for good, as seen
in the two photos below. The changes were made to accommodate construction
of the new Information Sciences and Technology Building. For details,
see page 1 of the Oct. 25 issue of Intercom.
