The family of Joe Paterno has completed the funeral arrangements for the legendary Penn State educator, coach and humanitarian, who passed away Sunday, Jan. 22. Two public viewings will be held, as well as a public memorial, "A Memorial For Joe," on the University Park campus. Those who are unable to attend Thursday's memorial service will be able to watch live coverage on the Big Ten Network, at BTN.com and BTN2Go.

Penn State Mont Alto will broadcast the public memorial service Thursday at 2 p.m. on multiple locations on campus including the Wiestling Student Center and the auditorium in the General Studies building. In addition, Housing and Food Services will open the doors to the Heritage Room in the Mill at 1:45 p.m.

"We, too, grieve the loss of Coach Joe Paterno at Mont Alto. As one University, geographically dispersed, we are grateful for the many contributions Coach Paterno made to better the University, and we will always honor and remember his life and legacy," said Dr. David C. Gnage, chancellor.
