Families and volunteers enjoyed another lively Family Carnival today in the White Building, where the THON 2015 “Empower the Dreamers” logo was revealed.
This Saturday at 8:00 p.m., Penn State’s oldest student organization will take to the stage at Eisenhower Auditorium for its annual fall concert. The Penn State Glee Club is one of the most active and distinguished men’s collegiate choirs in the United States and has toured across the country and world. Under the direction of Grammy winner Dr. Christopher Kiver, the Glee Club will perform a number of contemporary and traditional pieces.
From Kildare’s to Five Guys, downtown State College features many different places at which one can get a burger. With variations in everything from the bread to the cheese to the beef, each burger joint offers its own unique interpretation on the iconic American food. But who does it best in Happy Valley? Just like we did with wings and drunk pizza, we had some of our staff’s carnivores debate which burger is State College’s best.
Oh, general education courses. Can’t live with ‘em, can’t graduate without ‘em. Since most of the freshmen population will be scheduling within the next few days, we asked some upperclassmen for suggestions for a list of the best gen eds they’ve taken in their time at Penn State. Take a look at your new and improved list of options for crossing these suckers off your degree audit.
We asked our staff a simple question: Who is your favorite Penn State football player of all time?
State of State will help to generate conversations about sexual violence at Penn State this week as the organization hosts a sexual violence awareness panel, to take place at 5 p.m. this Thursday in 303 Willard.
A celebration of life and a memorial service will be held for the daughter of community muralist Michael Pilato today. Nineteen-year-old Skye Pilato tragically passed away earlier this month at her home in North Carolina.
Over the weekend, the 2015 Senior Class Gift Committee announced the three finalists for this year’s class gift. Seniors have three extremely different options to leave their mark on Penn State, and are able to vote for their favorite gift online by midnight Saturday. With that said, three of our senior writers present our latest Onward Debate: Which Senior Class Gift is the best?
The worst thing about away games is just that: They’re away. Nothing compares to a game in Beaver Stadium, and it’s always a little less fun when we all have to watch the game on TV instead of with 107,000 of our friends. To help us still have fun while watching the game at home, we’ve created the official drinking game for tonight’s game vs. Michigan.
Breakfast is very important to the citizens of State College. Something as simple as “how do you take your coffee?” can lead to a discussion on the relative merits of sugar and an origin story on Colombia’s best blend. In a place with such a high population density, being able to stand out amongst your peers is enough of a struggle. Now, when you’re catering to the angry whims of hungover, tired college students — many of whom hail from the New York/New Jersey area and are subsequently complete elitists about bagels — this task becomes even more tricky. For that reason, our staff got together and argued about the best spot for an early meal downtown, with divisive results.
UPUA has been criticized in the recent week by Onward State, the Daily Collegian, trustee Al Lord, and others for voting to close part of its meeting on Wednesday night to discuss the possibility of taking a stance on the Freeh report. UPUA released a statement today justifying its position on the close executive session, which is published verbatim.
We sent a trio of writers to review the only McAlister’s Deli in Pennsylvania, located in the HUB. They were mildly entertained.
Although it’s natural to be disappointed that you didn’t snag the coveted committee member role for THON 2015, that doesn’t mean that you can’t still play an important part in the THON community. There are plenty of ways you can still take part in the fight against pediatric cancer this year.
Being at such a large school with over forty-thousand students, it is often easy to overlook how diversified the Penn State community really is. And though we do not think about it often, there is so much we can learn from each other. The Global Engagement and Leadership Experience (GELE) is a unique opportunity for Penn Staters to break out of their comfort zones and learn more about each other in an open and constructive forum.
Tucked away in Kelly Alley off of Fraser Street lies one of State College’s greatest treasures: Good Seed Baking Company. The company has been around for awhile, selling their wares at the farmers’ market and other local institutions. But now the bakery has an address and store to call their own. We sent two of our staffers to try out the gluten free pastries and share their thoughts.
