Re-experience the Nittany Lions' 2013 season through the best of our staff's photos on the year.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Onward State! Aside from you readers, here is what our staff is thankful for this year.
Brittany Hicks and Chris Carmody came up with the idea of writing an original song about THON when the two were selected as Mr. and Mrs. PR for the Mr. and Mrs. THON Pageant. "Diamonds In The Air," which features Carmody playing the guitar and rapping and Hicks singing, was a combined effort between the two earlier in the semester.
It’s almost time for another football Saturday for the Penn State Nittany Lions (5-4, 2-3). The team will face off against the Purdue Boilermakers (1-8, 0-5) tomorrow afternoon at Beaver Stadium. The Boilermakers have yet to win a conference game this season and the team has been in disarray on both sides of the ball for the majority of the season. Here are our staff predictions for tomorrow’s noon kickoff.
Earlier this week, we published a list of the 100 Reasons Why We Still Are Penn State. One of the most incredible reasons is THON, with over 15,000 students participating in the ubiquitous philanthropy every year. With THON only 100 days away on February 15, we bring to you a list of the 100 reasons why the organization means so much to so many people. These are truly the reasons "Why We Dance" -- all for the kids!
Students aren't the only ones who have issues with classroom behavior. Here are classroom pet peeves, TA edition.
There is optimism around Penn State basketball for the first time since 2010-11. With that in mind, we ask this question: can this year's team make it to the NCAA Tournament? The season starts on Saturday, and March is a long way away, but it's never too early to talk basketball.
It's almost time for another football Saturday at Beaver Stadium. These mid-season, weak Big Ten opponents used to be something of a chore for Penn State, but after coming off one of the most crippling losses in program history, every game means something. Ever since Illinois coach Tim Beckman came into State College to recruit after the sanctions were implemented, Penn State has had an unlikely rivalry with the Illini. Here are our staff predictions for tomorrow's noon kickoff.
Edging out the nine other law schools in the state, the Penn State Dickinson School of Law graduates received the highest bar passage rate in Pennsylvania on the last exam. Penn State Law had a 93.83 percent success rate.

The hierarchy of sports at Penn State has remained unchanged for quite some time; football has always been king in Happy Valley, with basketball a distance second. However, the Penn State sports landscape might change for good tonight as the new Pegula Ice Arena opens to fans.

Bid Day is a big deal for Penn State sororities. It's when they officially announce their newest class of sisters. It's a day full of emotion, lifelong memories, and really loud chants. We sent three writers -- drunk, sober, and high, to check it out.
Many successful relationships got their beginnings at Penn State, so it only makes sense that a large number of these happy couples choose to take the next step in their relationship at the birth place of it. Some Onward State staff members decided to take a good look at some of the best and worst places to pop the question at Penn State.
Penn State is widely known for its whiteout games and the intense atmosphere that each brings. Traditionally, Penn State has one "official" full-stadium whiteout per season, with a few student-declared whiteouts sprinkled in. When the UCF game was declared a whiteout earlier this week, some students complained on social media that having a student whiteout this early in the season for a non-conference opponent makes the exercise less special.
Boy band-era sensation Aaron Carter made his highly anticipated second appearance in State College last night. The platinum-selling artist broke onto the scene in 2000 with Aaron's Party (Come Get It). Now 13 years later, he still performs in nightclubs and college bars around the country. We sent three writers in different states of inebriation to Levels Nightclub to see the one and only Aaron Carter. These are their stories.
