arts program

. Lederer was a board member of the Pennsylvania Committee on Probation. Raymond Francis Lederer, ''Biographical Directory of the United States Congress''. Accessed December 7, 2008. George W. Atherton became president of the school in 1882, and began working to broaden the school's curriculum. He commissioned Reber to expand the mechanical arts program, who in 1884 proposed the construction of a building dedicated to the teaching of mechanic arts and filled it with carpentry and metalworking equipment obtained primarily through the donations of local industry. In 1886, the board of trustees approved the creation of a department of mechanical engineering. Shortly after, Penn State became one of the ten largest engineering schools in the nation. Atherton also expanded the liberal arts and agriculture programs, and as a result, was rewarded with regular appropriations from the state beginning in 1887. For this, Atherton is widely credited of saving Penn State from bankruptcy, and is still honored today by the name of a major road in State College (State College, Pennsylvania) and its suburbs, Atherton Street (Atherton Street (State College)). Contrary to popular belief, Atherton Hall (Atherton Hall (Penn State)) is not named after President Atherton but his wife Frances Atherton. Atherton's grave rests near Old Main (Old Main (Pennsylvania State University)), the University Park (University Park, Pennsylvania) campus's central administration building, and is marked by an engraved marble block resting in front of his statue. Bloom is currently an associate professor of women's studies and international studies at the Pennsylvania State University in University Park, PA (University Park, Pennsylvania) and a fellow at the International Center for the Study of Terrorism at Penn State. Previously she was an assistant professor in the School of Public and International Affairs (University of Georgia School of Public and International Affairs) at the University of Georgia in Athens (Athens, Georgia), Georgia (Georgia (U.S. state)). The '''Penn State University Marching Blue Band''', known generally as the '''Blue Band''', is the marching band of Pennsylvania State University. Founded in 1899, it is the largest recognized student organization at the University Park (University Park, Pennsylvania) campus of Penn State, presently with over 300 active student members. The primary function of the Blue Band is in support of the Penn State Nittany Lions football team, performing for all home football games at Beaver Stadium. The '''Sussex Skyhawks''' were a professional baseball team that played at Skylands Park in Augusta, New Jersey. The team was part of the Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball, an independent minor baseball league also referred to as the Can-Am League, from their inaugural season in 2006 until 2010. The team was owned by a group led by Floyd Hall, who also owns the New Jersey Jackals. The team was formed in part due to their home park's previous tenant, the New Jersey Cardinals, relocating to University Park, Pennsylvania following the 2005 New York-Penn League season to become the State College Spikes.
