Penn State Behrend #supermileage team exceeds 2,500 MPG
There is some risk with this engine. Maybe it works, or maybe it blows up.

On Thursday, June 23, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of a race-conscious post-secondary admissions policy at the University of Texas at Austin.
Justice Anthony Kennedy, considered to be the swing vote, joined Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor, in a 4-3 decision that affirmed the constitutionality of the race-conscious policy and the university’s compelling interest in the educational benefits of a diverse student body.

The concept of recorded live television is what guided Cody Goddard, multimedia specialist for the College of Arts and Architecture’s e-Learning Institute at Penn State, to develop a “new and improved” format for faculty to record #lectures for online courses. http://ow.ly/WVk8301rIUi
Live television. If you’re on the East Coast, you probably don't see the exact moment the stars are dancing or the American idols are singing, but you do watch a recording of their live performance. That concept of recorded live television is what guided Cody Goddard, multimedia specialist for the College of Arts and Architecture’s e-Learning Institute, to develop a “new and improved” format for faculty to record lectures for online courses.

In 2008, Penn State School of Visual Arts faculty members John Bowman and Ann Shostrom founded First Street Green (FSG) with the goal of cleaning up the rat-infested vacant lot next to their New York City apartment and creating an “art park” for the Lower East Side community. After three years of planning, fundraising, and gathering local support, their dream became a reality when they launched First Street Green in First Park in collaboration with New York City’s Department of Parks and Recreation and Partnership for Parks. http://ow.ly/Ciba301idZy

According to Karly Etz, a doctoral candidate in #art history at Penn State, it’s hard for some people to grasp HOW she studies body art. “When they think of art history, they think of paintings and sculptures. But if you put #tattooing in the same category as performance art, it’s easier to grasp.” http://ow.ly/j93Z301fZg7
Body art. Yes, we’re talking about tattoos. For some, they are a mark of rebellion. For others, they are a declaration of love … a creative outlet … an extreme display of fandom. For Karly Etz, a doctoral candidate in art history, they are the subject of her doctoral research.

Linda M. Collins, director of The Methodology Center at Penn State, and Marya Gwadz, New York University Rory Meyers College of #Nursing Senior Research Scientist, have received a five-year $5.8 million grant to design an intervention to increase engagement with treatment among African-American/black and Hispanic people living with HIV. They are using a pioneering engineering-inspired framework- the Multiphase Optimization Strategy (MOST) -- developed by Collins.

An intervention to increase engagement with treatment among African-American/black and Hispanic people living with HIV has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a part of the National Institutes of Health. The study will target people who are neither taking antiretroviral therapy nor consistently engaged in HIV primary care.

“Schools and classrooms are very structured, and when summer comes around, things can become a lot less routine. This is typically the case whether the child is with a parent, grandparent, babysitter or at a summer camp,” said Dr. Timothy Zeiger, a clinical psychologist at Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. http://ow.ly/8Kbc301rJ9O #Research #health #school #anxiety
Change can be hard for many people. For kids — who often thrive on routine and predictability — the transition from school year to summer and into a new academic year can bring uncertainty that can trigger anxiety and behavioral problems.

“What really is remarkable at our institution is our breadth, and not just our breadth, but our depth within all these areas. It is our broad research, scholarship, teaching, extension and discovery enterprises that encompass all areas of science that have helped us gain these important designations."
Penn State's status is not only as a Land-Grant university, but also a Space Grant, Sun Grant and Sea Grant #university. http://ow.ly/THgj301rIEi
Penn State is not only a Land-Grant university, but also a Space Grant, Sun Grant and Sea Grant university. There is only one other university in the country that can claim all of these designations, which signal a university’s ability to receive federal funding for research projects that benefit the larger community.

According to Derek Kreager, professor of #sociology and #criminology at Penn State, previous research on the cessation of drug use and other criminal activity focused on adulthood. “Good marriages, stable jobs and military service were found to be the motivators for quitting these behaviors. Obviously in adolescence, this isn’t the case, so we wanted to find out what were the motivators that affected #marijuana use.” The work was published recently in the online edition of the Journal of Developmental and Life-Course Criminology. http://ow.ly/Gjau301dr7L
Youth are experimenting with marijuana at increasingly younger ages, despite recent studies showing a decline in cigarette smoking, alcohol abuse and other risky behaviors. Penn State researchers wanted to find out why some adolescents stop using marijuana after trying it the first time, while others continue.

"This book came out of 10 years of doing research and working closely with women farmers in Pennsylvania and in the Northeast. We were so impressed with the kind of work women were doing on farms — oftentimes with minimal resources, little capital, maybe little land — but doing creative things to try to transform the #agricultural system. We felt like we needed to get their stories out there."
-- * Carolyn Sachs, professor of rural sociology and women's studies, Penn State, book co-author*

Great place if you want to do research in gravity: I'm a graduate student in the gravity group and believe that it was a great choice to come here. Beside the excellent research, State College is a nice town (maybe a bit small) and has almost everything one can wish for - due to its size everything is also nearby. The Penn State Campus is really pretty and sometimes I just go to the Aboretum to think about my research.

Big university in a small town, plenty of opportunities and resources for everyone. If you take full advantage and get involved it will certainly be an unforgettable experience. The university gets smaller the more you join clubs and activities and make them your own.

I never received admission letter (whether accepted or not) for IST PHD, and when I contacted graduate school I never got any response either. Seems like a great place to study

PSU. High quality education comparable to Ivy League, but without the Ivy League price. Proud of my alma mater.
