(State College) -- Penn State is reporting that applications are on the rise, and officials say it's a sign the school may be starting to get the Jerry Sandusky scandal behind it.
The university says applications have increased by 19 percent compared to a year ago.
Penn State president Rodney Erickson calls it a ``sign of stability and strength."
The school's trustees also say they're on track to name a new president in the coming months, but didn't give any details about the effort to find a replacement for Erickson.
