Students from seven different
clubs at Penn State-Behrend have
"adopted" Diehl Elementary
School classes through the
Adopt-A-School program. The
program began in October with
tours of the school by Behrend
students and was followed by an
official kick-off ceremony in
In the latter part of December,
students from both schools
participated in seasonal activities,
and in January, coaches Doug
Zimmerman, Jenepher Banker and
their teams presented a basketball
demonstration, followed by
classroom interaction in which
the coaches and Behrend students
stressed the importance of
working hard at whatever you do.
Behrend Police and Safety
officer Todd Allen spoke to the
children about general safety and
dealing with strangers.
During the month of January,
the two schools also began a

The three students were
staffers of the Dartmouth
Review, the first and most
flamboyant of the conservative
newspapers set up by a
Washington, D.C., foundation on
at least 34 campuses since 1980.
After publishing several
articles critical of Cole, a black
man whom the Review had called
"incompetent" and a "Brillo
head," the three got in a fight
with Cole outside his classroom.
A campus disciplinary board
found the three guilty of
"harassing" Cole, and Dartmouth
suspended them.
