From obnoxious, drunken frat boys to wide-eyed freshmen trying to conquer downtown, there’s endless energy in Happy Valley during Syllabus Week. With so much inspiration surrounding us, it’s only natural for students to take to Twitter to express our uncontrollable thoughts and emotions.
Some of you were nostalgic, a few were appalled — but most of you? Downright happy to be back. Here are the best tweets from Sylly Week:
It wouldn’t be a proper first day of classes if penn state’s websites didn’t go down🙄🙄🙄

With all the madness involving LionPATH, Canvas, Angel, you name it — Jackie makes a good point.
I don’t think there’s anything to describe the amount of happiness I have being back in happy valley

Best part of #PSUarrival was the 1 minute rave I had with a bunch of Asian guys in an elevator. You rock.

Some of us had warmer welcomes than others.
I would do absolutely anything to be a part of sylly week at Penn State right now. Except actually go to class. Still, almost anything.

Ah, yes, actually going to classes during Sylly Week is quite the obstacle to overcome.
You really thought graduation/a secure job would stand in the way of me missing Penn State sylly week? Pft. You thought wrong.

Even our beloved former staff writer couldn’t keep herself away from Happy Valley this week.

Whether you miss the partying or the fine cuisine, we can all agree that it’s good to be back.

We sincerely hope Kelly survived this trauma and was able to celebrate with or without her bug bite.
We had to do icebreakers in one of my classes and a girl asked me if I went to Penn State.

“Do you even go here?”

Met our neighbor for the first time. He’s drunk, his roommates locked him out, & he asked to sleep on my couch. Uhm, Penn State? Am I back?
— Steph Smith (@Steph_Smith016) August 21, 2016
It certainly sounds like you’ve returned to Happy Valley, Steph.

No Sylly Week is perfect.
Happy Sylly Week Penn State. Enjoy it, because before you know it you’ll be sitting at your desk still fighting a hangover from Saturday
— Zach Hannah (@peeweeballer21) August 22, 2016
Thanks, Zach — we’ll keep that in mind.
These are just a handful of the best tweets from this Syllabus Week. Until classes are truly underway next Monday — stay Sylly, Penn State.
