Burke explained, "This has always been a bid project.." in which the money is given out in segments as needed. The check issued last Thursday by the governor was for the construction portion of the project,...

Reader finds Spanos article controversial but flawed [Newspaper Article] — Collegian — 25 January 1990
Reader finds Spanos article controversial but flawed Opinion Iaa s ^ saa = s ^=B ====:==J Letter to the Editor: 1 Dear Editor, I suppose you are doing the college community a service by printing opinion pieces like Christine Spanos' "Aid For The Unworthy," (Wednesday, January 24, 1990), in which she grouses about drug-using students getting financial aid. Her contentions that no one should have a problem with taking a test for illegal drugs, that "it would be only the drug users themselves who claim that their constitutional rights are being violated," and that students who use drugs "have already forfeited their constitutional rights" should stimulate discussion. I can see the bags of mail from right (or should I say lcft)-thinking students piling up on your desk, all verbally pummeling this form of latter day McCarthyism. My problem with your running that piece is the atrocious writing and muddled thinking exhibited by Ms. Spanos and foisted on us by your lack of editori...
Rob admits to financial aid abuse [Newspaper Article] — Collegian — 25 January 1990
Rob admits to financial aid abuse LOVE ROB byRobPrindle I'm really in financial trouble, and yet, I cannot help feeling that it is all my fault. I need to feed my addiction. I'll tell you what happened, but as always, I must warn you that this will not be pretty. Not pretty at all. You see it all started when the government gave me some money. You all know about the state and federal governments' dedication to higher education. That dedication has somehow led to Pennsylvania rating at the very bottom in terms of money for students. Hell, in a lot of states, the public colleges are virtually free. And the federal government headed by Reagan...ah, I mean Bush wants to cut back student aid to the tune of several billion dollars. So anyway, the powers-that-be invited me to fill out a few hundred questions on a financial aid request form. When that was done they sent Penn State a check. It wasn't as much as I had hoped for, and when I totaled up the lime I'd spent on the applicat...
