Ben Novak Addresses The University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA)

Dr. Ben Novak, retired Penn State Trustee, addressed the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA) on Oct. 1. Mr. Novak spoke on the traditional role of student government as the guardian of school customs and traditions and extolled the virtues of student leaders who shape themselves and mold their fellow students before making demands from administrators.

Mr. Novak is a longtime resident of Centre County, former student body president (1964-’65), member of Lion’s Paw, a retired attorney and a leading advocate for the preservation of Mount Nittany through the Mount Nittany Conservancy.

The video of his remarks is now being made available at Safeguard Old State thanks to George Chriss and the University Park Undergraduate Association.
