1887 was an exciting year at Penn State. Not only did the football program kick off (with a team that went 2-0), but The Daily Collegian’s predecessor, The Free Lance, hit newsstands.
To better serve you, our readers, and to celebrate our 125th birthday, we will be making some improvements to your Collegian this year.
First, you probably noticed the line of text across the top of page one: “1887 Celebrating 125 Years 2012.” This will become a mainstay of your 2011-12 Collegian.
We’ve also given a facelift to the Collegian’s website: collegian.psu.edu. We’re going for a more sleek, professional look, as well as making it more user-friendly.
As the year progresses, please let us know what you think about the Collegian’s upgrades. I promise, there are many more exciting ones to come.
125 years later, so much has changed at Penn State — but one thing hasn’t: The Daily Collegian, your Daily Collegian, is here to serve you.
We’re here to bring you the most relevant, up-to-the-second news that will impact your life. Pick up the paper everyday. Find and interact with us on Facebook and @dailycollegian.
Here’s to another 125 years.
