Frank Clemente Lecture
Welcome freshmen! I see you’ve survived your first month here as a Penn State student. By now you’ve undoubtedly Instagrammed a photo of Old Main, argued or watched someone argue with the Willard Preacher, eaten a West cookie and told 13 different people the same uninteresting story about just how drunk you were last weekend and how much you can’t even (Don’t worry, we’ve noticed your progress). Staples of your first month in Happy Valley, no doubt.

The Willard Preacher has been outside of Willard doing his thing for years. The content is always controversial but frankly, it's getting kind of stale. So, we came up with a game to keep things interesting. Next time you're sitting outside Willard, pull out this bingo board and see how many you can get.

Inside Waring Commons' West Food District lies a dessert straight out of Penn State lore, up there with Berkey Creamery ice cream and Grilled Stickies: West Cookies. When you say the phrase, everyone knows what you mean. Everyone knows what to picture: warm, gooey, fresh-baked rounds placed underneath sliding glass, gently laid on a bed of wax paper atop the baking sheet. What could anyone possibly have against them?

Insect Fair 2
The Bryce Jordan Center hosts an eclectic group of events throughout the year. From concerts to the career fair, there is almost nothing that the arena won't host. So naturally, when we found out that Penn State's Entemology department would be hosting "The Great Insect Fair" at the BJC, our minds were piqued. Now, we at Onward State like to take a different approach to events like this, so we decided to send three of our writers in different states of mind to the fair.

With Fall Career Days starting today, Penn Staters are in full-on job hunting mode. Over three days, thousands will flock to the BJC to talk to their dream companies, or, well, whoever will take their résumés.

It can be kind of difficult to pay attention to the commercials during Penn State games. Between taking that much-needed bathroom break to, it can be quite the arduous task to multi-task during the game.

movin on 2012
Penn State's favorite (and only) free music festival, Movin' On, is this weekend. With the concert moving up a week this year, and on a Saturday for the first time ever, organizers are expecting the event's largest crowd ever. With each Movin' On comes a new set of musical acts, and anything and everything that you may expect at a free music concert on a college campus. For the unexpected, we have decided to set up some prop bets for the concert.
