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, check the Web at

That's why they call it 'fall'


Workers from the Office of Physical Plant rake up and remove the fallen leaves on the University Park campus. Although 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.
