The Berkey Creamery is a staple in the Penn State community. There are about 100 ice cream flavors, and Vanilla is the most popular of them. While there are many well known and loved flavors, we set out to find what flavors didn't have people screaming for ice cream.

Mike Morse, known by his students simply as Coach, or Coach Morse, currently teaches fitness walking, bowhunting, and men's basketball as a part of the Kinesiology Physical Activity Program (KPAP). He is often seen leading a pack of students through campus, donning a baseball cap and a towel draped around his neck. The sight is somewhat reminiscent of Forrest Gump running in the desert with a pack of clueless followers behind. And from the life stories told by Coach Morse, it seems as though he may have a lot more in common with Forrest than your average Joe.

An aspect that's often overlooked, but still important to observe, is the legacy that our predecessors have left before us. Penn State has a rich history of prominent figures that have walked our campus many years before us.

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.

The Blue Band is a huge part of Game Day that’s often overlooked. That’s definitely not the case, however, for Drum Major Chris Siergiej. Due to Onward State’s curiosity, Chris gave us a play-by-play of his usual Game Day; it’s different than most students’ for sure!

It’s a tradition as old as time, yet no one seems to remember when it started: fraternity pledges guarding their Homecoming floats. After a long week of pomping and dressing up for their weeklong themes, the fun continues for the young fraternity gentlemen with night shift guarding of their floats for Friday’s Homecoming Parade.

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.

Baby Mike Does Hot Yoga
Let me start off by saying this: I have never done yoga. I am not flexible whatsoever, and I often neglect stretching when I work out. So who on Onward State was more qualified than me to try out State College's only hot yoga studio? Nobody, that's who.
