Let’s recap what happened yesterday through the lens of social media:
In a cool bit of news, Pittsburgh Penn Staters can now get their Creamery fix from an ice cream truck.

The fatigue was visible in most of the UPUA representatives’ faces as the clock struck 1 a.m. in 314 HUB. Long UPUA meetings are nothing new, but this long? Those are something of legend, anomalies that are spoken about in hushed tones as legend of assemblies past.
