Breaking cement at the HUB expansion ceremony

University representatives used sledgehammers instead of shovels to ceremonially "break ground" at an event on Sept. 19, 2013, for the HUB-Robeson Center and Penn State Bookstore renovation and expansion project. The concrete slabs are roofline tiles taken from the HUB during earlier demolition for the project.  From left, Steve Falke, general manager, Penn State Bookstore; Ford Stryker, associate vice president, Physical Plant; Ryan Patrick, executive director, Penn State Dance Marathon; Mary Edgington, senior director, Union and Student Activities; Damon Sims, vice president, Student Affairs; Jerry Shaheen, project executive at Gilbane Building Co., Scott Rager, president, Graduate Student Association (GSA); Katelyn Mullen, president, University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA); Rachel Francescino, president, Panhellenic Council; and Anthony Panichelli, assembly chair, UPUA.
