Flashback Friday -- Jerome K. Pasto, curator and namesake of the Pasto Agricultural Museum at Penn State, demonstrating how to hold a horse-drawn potato cultivator, in 1995. The museum will kick off its 2015 fall open-house series, held home football game Sundays, starting Sept. 13. http://ow.ly/RKv7A
In 1974, the alumni of Penn State's College of Agricultural Sciences began an extensive project to gather and preserve pieces of agricultural history. With a mere $1,500 in donations from alumni, what is today's Pasto Agricultural Museum officially opened on Aug. 22, 1979. The museum will kick off its 2015 fall open-house series, held home football game Sundays, starting Sept. 13.

"Students are naturally pretty diverse in their work. I took the idea of progressions and breakthroughs in the work as a core concept. These students have shown drive and ambition, and [the exhibition] is a chance for people to see a show of work that involves development and discovery.”

Penn State Materials Research Institute asstistant professor of mechanical engineering part of a group working on a new engineered surface that can repel liquids in any state of wetness. http://ow.ly/RDZBi
The leaves of the lotus flower, and other natural surfaces that repel water and dirt, have been the model for many types of engineered liquid-repelling surfaces. As slippery as these surfaces are, however, tiny water droplets still stick to them. Now, Penn State researchers have developed nano/micro-textured, highly slippery surfaces able to outperform these naturally inspired coatings, particularly when the water is a vapor or tiny droplets.

The class of 2018 is Penn State Law's first since the American Bar Association granted the law school separate accreditation from its sister school in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and the largest class to enroll at University Park in four years. Each student brings to campus their own talents, goals, and life experiences. Here, three of them share what led them to Penn State Law in University Park. http://ow.ly/RH0pS

“Working with people who care about sustainability has been incredibly helpful in our trial and error process of becoming a more sustainable business." Penn State Campus Catering going the #compostable route with their trash. http://ow.ly/RAvMF
When Michael Edmondson started working at Campus Catering eight years ago, there was little recycling infrastructure in place and almost no composting to speak of. Among some of the notable improvements made by Campus Catering over the past five years is the transition from using plastic water bottles, sometimes as many as 3,000 per week at events, to refillable jug dispensers and compostable cups. Additionally, nearly all post-event waste is now...

“To give back to the community is so important, and to create that connection between the community and the student-athletes here at Penn State is really important. Our team is doing a great job academically, so they are excellent role models when we meet with young individuals in the community.” Eleven Penn State athletics teams performed more than 100 hours of community engagement in 2014-15. http://ow.ly/RvaTa
Through a wide-range of activities with organizations and groups of all ages, Penn State’s approximately 800 student-athletes performed more than 5,300 hours of community service in 2014-15.
