Here at Onward State, we want the Class of 2014 to enjoy the graduation ceremony instead of it being ingrained in their memory as a brutal time commitment. Sure, listen to the graduation speeches, but here are some things for you to do to make your time sitting through commencement a bit more entertaining.

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.

Former Penn State defensive end and current Kansas City Chiefs outside linebacker Tamba Hali may have a future in music after his football career ends. Hali released a rap/R&B song a few days back called "Hell Yeah," and it's actually pretty good.

If you want to try an outlet for the fear you face about graduation that isn't going to kill your liver, perhaps you can try listening to some über-depressing music. As Onward State's resident sad music guy, I've got your back.

As is the case in just about any election, from national to student government, there are bound to be a few interesting write-in votes once the ballots are tallied. In last week’s UPUA election, which officially elected Penn State’s Ninth Assembly of undergraduate representatives, plenty of amusing write-in votes were, well, written in.

We all pretty much hate ANGEL. To put it kindly, ANGEL is a very bland and inconvenient course management system. All the same, we're also all pretty much stuck with it for the time being. Luckily, there's a silver lining. As it turns out, ANGEL offers some amazingly obscure themes in its personal settings. We went through them and picked out the very best, just for you. Pick your favorite and make using ANGEL a little bit more hilarious for yourself.

Irvin’s Great-Great-Great-Grandson, Steve Irvin, now wants the land back, which will result in Penn State’s eviction from State College, Pa.

It's that time of the year again. After what seems like an entire year of winter, Mother Nature has finally graced us with some much-needed sunshine, which means at least one thing here at Penn State – daylong season. Just like any other party, there is a list of unwritten rules that one must abide by to insure each precious day of daylong season is executed correctly.

In the name of journalism -- ok, it was mostly because the Drunk Deliveries people haven't expanded to breakfast yet -- I ventured down to the Taco Bell on E. College Ave at 7 a.m. when the doors opened. This one is for history.
