Maggie McGlinchy shares her parting thoughts on graduating from Penn State.
The Wong family has been making egg rolls for the State College community since 1970. But when I called to speak further about the family business, Suzie Wong politely declined the interview.

The Daily Collegian's sex columnists Dick and Jane are newly born-again virgins. They have stopped writing their sex column to pursue a new topic: Abstinence. They will now write for Onward State every Thursday about not having sex and why it's awesome.
When I made the descent into Irving's basement, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. It was to be my first meeting with the Penn State Furries, the Happy Valley sector of the fan culture for people who like to, in its simplest form, dress up and pretend to be animals.
A second church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints is being built on Beaver avenue in downtown State College.
For the first time since 1992, Penn State will welcome a new sorority to campus -- two, in fact. Penn State Panhellenic Delegates voted last night to reopen two sorority chapters: Phi Sigma Sigma and Delta Phi Epsilon.

THON partners Kappa Kappa Gamma and Delta Chi as well as Pi Kappa Alpha and Kappa Alpha Theta have their own sets of flags that they have been waving. The orgs are standing right next to each other in the lower bowl but had no idea that they both would be bringing flag poles to THON.
What do you think of the THON 2014 Line Dance? Personally, I'm not too impressed. Here's why.
The Hope Express is an annual 135 mile marathon completed in 24 hours as a tribute to THON and the Four Diamond Families. A group of 54 runners make up this year's team, carrying messages from the Four Diamonds children that can't make it to the Bryce Jordan Center.
Sure, we've all taken EGEE102 with Pisupati, GEOSCI010 with Richard Alley (RockOn!), or THEA100 with Rob Schneider (sigh), but what about other classes we wish we had? If Rutgers can get away with a class about Beyoncé and Bruce Springsteen we can get away with some novelty courses too, right?

The Upright Citizens Brigade Tour Company will make a stop at Alumni Hall this Thursday, January 30, at 8 p.m. Presented by SPA, the performance is free with a valid Penn State student ID (aka State College High kids can’t crash).

Deciding where to study abroad is a difficult, but fun choice to have! But what exactly are other people thinking when you tell them where you're studying next semester?
It's been about a year since Onward State introduced the world to Sneezy and it's been quite the ride for both Sneezy and Mary Krupa ever since.
The only way to get through college is to hook up a caffeine IV to yourself. Or take a lot of adderall. Most of us just grab coffee on our walk to class. But where exactly are you buying your coffee? It says a lot more about you than you think.
Hard-hitting journalists Mara Kern and Maggie McGlinchy stopped by the Mad Hat'r on Pugh Street to check out their selection of hats. It. Was. Awesome.
What's Boombox Guy still doing in State College? It's not what you think.
