Thinking of others


Students and others were busy baking in Mateer Building on the University Park campus a few weeks ago, in an effort to raise money for Project Haiti. The project involves 42 students traveling to Haiti to take on community service projects and deliver donations of basic necessities. Other alternative spring break trips planned this year include: The Crabapple Gang will send 27 students to California to plant upwards of 27,000 trees in an area of Tahoe National Forest that was ravaged by fire in 1999; student Annina Burns will lead 10 members of the group she founded, Nutrition Service Project, to a lower-class neighborhood in rural Pennsylvania to provide a nutrition education program for approximately 200 middle and high school students; Christian Student Fellowship will bus more than 90 students to North Carolina to assist in the continuing recovery from the devastation caused by Hurricane Floyd in 1999; Penn State's Habitat for Humanity will sponsor 145 students on 10 spring break service trips throughout the south; and nearly 200 student members of the Alternative Spring Break Club will work on eight projects focusing on urban issues.

"I've designed many University publications while listening to WPSU's music programming -- especially their classical music program, which is broadcast during our regular working hours. WPSU has actually enhanced the creative work environment here in Publications' design room. Over the years, it became evident to me that the time for me to give back to the radio station was long overdue. So I took advantage of payroll deduction, and I've been making monthly contributions to WPSU. And although this may sound hard to believe, I really get a kick out of annually raising my contribution as my ability to give increases. Giving to Penn State's radio station just makes listening to it all the more enjoyable."
