In today’s edition of The Daily Collegian, you saw the news about this year’s flu outbreak, a post-sentencing hearing for Jerry Sandusky and some changes to ANGEL’s maintenance schedule, among other things.
We have some more to share with you as you head into this weekend, though — and we’re calling it P.S., a nod to a former weekend Collegian publication of the same name.
On Sept. 17, 1973, the cover story was a view inside the State Correctional Institution at Rockview — written by a 42-year-old Penn State student who had served several years at the facility. Other issues featured everything from a “survival manual” for bike owners to a “Campus Cookbook” to an analysis of the path forward for the “State College By-Pass.”
A few decades back, Collegian readers were told to go to P.S. to “start the weekend right,” and our goal here is the same.
Like its recent magazine predecessor, Venues, P.S. will still tell you the lineup for entertainment at local bars, and you’ll also still get a rundown of other events you might want to check out during your days off.
But we hope the stories inside also serve as diversions in their own right — an up-close look at an interesting character in the Penn State community or stories focusing on the things that matter outside of your life as a student Monday through Friday.
This week, you’ll meet a student who spends plenty of time hanging out with her 11-year-old friend from home — a horse named Lulu. You’ll also find out when to expect the New Year’s “resolutioner” crowds to start dispersing from area fitness centers
So this weekend, here’s what else we have for you. Check back next Thursday and every week after for more.

(P.S. — We hope you like it.)
