I wanted to write about the availability of CAPS during this Mental Health Awareness week because it is so important. The services they provide can save you from so much stress, anxiety, frustration, sadness, and a multitude of other problems. They did just that for me, and I hope, if necessary, they can do the same for you.

A few weeks ago, we wrote about Penn Stater Kayla Nakonechni who is battling cancer just months after she danced in THON 2013. You can help raise funds for her cause by buying a "Whiteout Cancer" t-shirt at Old State.

On the outside, Kayla Nakonechni is your typical Penn Stater. She camps at Nittanyville, studies biology, and danced in THON last year. On the inside, though, she's fighting the battle of her life.

You graduated in May. You moved out over the summer, piece-by-piece. You cried. Now it's time for everyone else to move back. They'll be at "your" bars, apartments, and favorite study spots. Well, I'm here to tell you how I'm dealing with these same exact struggles in the hopes that we can all deal with the ultimate post-grad problem: not moving back to State College for the first time in four years.

In front of hundreds of fans at the Penn State Lacrosse Field, the Penn State Football defensive squad beat the offense in the 11th Annual Lift For Life competition benefiting Uplifting Athletes 160-122. No one cared about that score, though. The team raised over $113,000 for kidney cancer research and is on pace to shatter last year's record.
