Penn State Grad Burns Diploma on Campus

A student in Happy Valley supposedly just witnessed a disgruntled Penn State graduate from the class of 1975 burn his diploma outside of Old Main, which, miraculously enough, was the university’s “first building of major significance.”

The tie dye shirt underneath this gentleman’s oversized zip-up is a dead giveaway for a deep desire to burn something, so perhaps this is a daily ritual and he’s simply burning the latest offering from Rick Reilly.

What I don’t understand is, unless someone raped your diploma, why would you burn it?
