So it’s an away game, another playlist, another pain in the ass. I know, I know. But you have to make the mix to continue drinking all day while we prep for the Iowa game, right?
At this point, we’ve begun to cover every genre. This week has even more new songs from dubstep artists, as well as the usual Mr. Kanye West. As we try to diversify the songs for the playlist, keep in mind that some songs just aren’t right for the party (like the new Glee soundtrack), and that this party playlist is solely for the purpose of shakin’ asses.

Camping Outside GN Associates

Grab your tents, grab your sleeping bags. You finally have another excuse to camp out. Except this time, make sure to bring a safety deposit.

No no, this isn’t another profile on Paternoville. This time, we’re camping out for something longer lasting than front row tickets for a Penn State football game.

We’re camping out for next year’s housing.

Vice President Biden's visit led to some confrontation outside the Pollock Road entrance of the HUB. In one such instance, Sam Settle of Young Americans for Freedom got in an argument with Steven Heppelmann, a Penn State physics professor. Hilarity ensues in the video after the jump.

Scheduling: A traumatic experience we all have to go through together. A night that reminds us graduation actually does exist. A necessary speed bump that pokes fun at those of us who are still clueless about our life path. A fight with your peers for the best classes at the best times (hello four-day weekends!). That's where Onward State steps in. Last week in our Community section, we asked for your opinions on the classes offered here at Penn State. Based on your comments and other feedback, we've assembled a brief list to help you in your quest to achieve some prime time knowledge.

Myers argued that the provision would discriminate against students and would be a problem not only for students, but for rental owners, business, and for Penn State. By lowering the amount of occupants allowed in a rental from three to two, the Borough Council would be taking already limited living space away from students.

Red pill or blue pill?

Residents were able to hand over their pills anonymously at a box in the police department. This event was part of a nation-wide effort that took place this weekend, coordinated by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

They will be there most of the day registering new members, handing out information on Republican candidates, and talking to passers-by.
