You may have noticed Canyon Pizza's newest edition to its delivery fleet -- an old police cruiser. You'll remember seeing the "Canyon police car", so you'll remember Canyon Pizza, at least if the marketing plan works out.

Every once in a while, the running buddy can't make it, your music isn't getting you pumped to run, or you are lacking motivation to get a hard run in. Luckily, outside motivation can exist through Penn State's lovely public transportation system, AKA the Blue and White Loops.

After countless times of being shanked by the metal chains lining the sidewalks thanks to groups not moving over, after countless times of being late to class because it was impossible to pass the texter walking aimlessly ahead, and after, dare I say it, countless indecisive, awkward passing issues, there has been enough sidewalk crime. It's time to take action and end terrible walking habits all over Penn State!

It’s early Sunday morning after the final Saturday night of Penn State’s Spring semester, and on frat row one would expect to see all the walk-of-shamers making their way back one more time before the summer; but instead something quite different is happening.

Every "All Sinner's Eve," or Thursday, Gary Cattell preaches outside the Willard Building, just like he has been doing for the past 30 years. We decided to ask the Willard Preacher a few questions about his thoughts on Easter, and how students celebrate the religious holiday.

Most schools want students to stay for the fourth year and to pay another year's worth of tuition, even if you can graduate in three. If you were wondering how to graduate in three years, Onward State has no reservations about telling Penn Staters how to get more bang for their buck.

After nine hours of THONing, spectators have agreed -- Thrift Shop by Mackelmore is the number one song played so far by a nearly 2:1 margin. Coming in close second was Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, followed by Wagon Wheel by Bob Dylan.
