pick up lines
If you're like me, you have absolutely no game. I'm talking a complete inability to say anything clever, funny, or sexy to anyone, regardless of sobriety level. Realizing my shortcomings, the Onward State staff decided to help out and compile a list of Penn State-themed pickup lines. We'll provide a list here for your viewing pleasure, and hope you utilize them to the best of your abilities.

If the only time you find yourself at the Penn State Bookstore is when you're picking up textbooks, you're missing out. We took a trip to the store's temporary mobile home on the HUB Lawn to browse the items currently in stock.

We sent out some film guys to see how Penn State students recreated the famous Nittany Lion roar.

The New York Times did a great user-generated feature this spring collecting haikus to describe what New York City meant to its diverse communities. Like New York, I believe our community in the Nittany Valley elicits profound emotions that could be conveyed beautifully through haiku.

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.

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.
