0 First Night State College Returns Tomorrow

Alcohol is a wonderful thing: the cause and salve of all man’s problems. However one does not always need alcohol to have fun. Downtown State College is certainly in agreement with this statement, as the local event known as “First Night” can attest to. First Night is a big celebration of the past year and a fun way to ring in the new one.

0 Vote Penn State For NCAA Football 14 Game Cover

The cover photo for the legendary EA Sports video game series NCAA Football is always a popular topic. Previous covers include Robert Griffin III, Tim Tebow, Reggie Bush, and even Mark Sanchez (lol). But this year, EA Sports is doing things a little differently. Rather than feature an individual player, the video game empire will feature an entire team on the cover based on a fan vote — and all 126 BCS schools have a chance.

But that’s exactly what the Nittany Lions did Sunday morning, routing New Hampshire 72-45, rewarding the diehard fans who skipped church with free Big Macs.

4 10 Questions with UPUA VP Katelyn Mullen

One of the unsung heroes of any organization is the vice president, often overshadowed by his or her running mate upon election to office. Penn State’s student government is no different, with the vice president routinely taking on the brunt of the executive work as delegated by the president. The current stalwart holding that position is UPUA Vice President Katelyn Mullen. I got a chance to catch up with Katelyn and discuss her role in student government, her cameo on an MTV reality show, and all things veep-related.
