Model Jenn Sterger, a student at Florida State University with 95 Facebook.com friends at Dartmouth, will give a half-hour presentation on her life.

Model and Internet celebrity Jenn Sterger will make an appearance at Psi Upsilon fraternity this Saturday as part of a programming event to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Sterger, a fifth-year senior at Florida State University, was propelled to fame in Sept. 2005 when cameras from ABC News panned across the crowd at an FSU football game, pausing before the commercial break on a scantily-clad Sterger and two of her friends.

Jenn Sterger, whose rise to fame was aided by the popular internet site Facebook.com, socializes with undergraduates and the College’s unofficial mascot, “Keggy the Keg,” on the lawn of Psi Upsilon fraternity Saturday evening. Sterger attracted a large crowd during the only day of Green Key weekend to avoid much rain.


For contrast, back when I was there two Dartmouth women were a the Playboy “Girls of the Ivy League” pictorial, and my recollection was despite both being fully dressed they got protested. The D described one as the “pose on a staircase reveals much of her backside and the profile of one breast” so my recollection is a little off, but *shrug*

It’s nice to see that some of the 1990s revival of puritanism has warn off…


  1. The only thing i find of worth to note about this, is that i am disappointed that at
    dartmouth, a supposedly good school, the students arent creative enough to think of a
    mascot for their group better then “keggy the keg”… that shit is just sad.

  2. Hey, I like Keggy, although I’m glad he’s unofficial rather than with the imprimatur of the school.

    And it beats having simply a color for a school mascot, or a bunch of conservative students and old alumni whining about why can’t we have the Indian mascot. There was an attempt to create a new moose (DartMOOSE or something) mascot when I was there, but it didn’t catch on even unofficially as Keggy has.

  3. It’s so funny to see the 1990s referred to as the bad old days. To me, it was just the blink of an eye ago.
