Penn State Gets Wimpy. Members of the 98-year-old "Outing Club" can no longer go scuba diving or engage in several other outdoor activities like hiking. They can play rugby, field hockey, and even football, but no scuba diving. Officials say scuba diving is "above the university's threshold of acceptable risk" for students. But, the risk is not getting bent. It seems that the death knell stems from the Club frequently visiting locations with poor cell phone coverage. "Student safety in any activity is our primary focus," a Penn State spokeswoman told The Post-Gazette.
