0 Levels Nightclub Can’t Handle Their Shit

Remember that time Levels opened? Oh, wait. It still hasn’t happened yet. There was yet another delay today in the widely anticipated grand opening of Levels Nightclub when their plumbing system backed up. A post on their Facebook account this afternoon informed potential parties of the plumbing plight, apologizing for the delay, which has become a pattern as this is now their second canceled premier.

0 Penn State: A Football School With A Basketball Problem

Seven freshmen, four sophomores, two juniors, and one senior. There’s no doubt that the Penn State Nittany Lions men’s basketball team is young. The majority of the players we’ve seen take the court this season will be here for at least the next two years. Like it or not, there won’t be very many changes to the roster during the coming offseason.

I don’t think that I made it through more than an hour of THON last year before boredom took over and I ventured back to East Halls. But after just a few caffeine-powered hours in the Bryce Jordan Center and a trip down to the floor, my perspective on the world’s largest student-run philanthropy has taken a complete turn.

0 My Hero Zero Impresses at THON 2012

Local State College rock band My Hero Zero took the stage at the Bryce Jordan Center just after 5 a.m., ready to wake up the crowd with unique covers that encompassed the entire musical spectrum, from ‘N Sync and Avicii to the Beatles and Bon Jovi. The group, which benefits from a Jaegermeister sponsorship, has been donating iTunes song sales to THON for the past month. They opened with a “Living on a Prayer” cover, took a trip down memory lane with “Bye, Bye, Bye” and “Larger Than Life”, and appealed to the electronic crowd with “Levels” and “Party Rock Anthem” covers.
