At today's Penn State where so many of our leaders fall into a robotic, impersonal -- yes, heartless -- abyss, honorable intent is at least a start. If nothing else, David Joyner had that.

Most of my memories stem from my time at the helm of Onward State during the last two years, and from the relationships gained as a result. It has been the honor of my life to be a part of this community experiment, but the real joy has come by learning from the thousands of people I've had the pleasure of meeting over the last four years.

Don't worry about what you should be doing, or how what you're doing is going to fit into the cadre of college—or Penn State, for that matter—predetermined by our culture. Go make your own Penn State, without any expectations; you'll be much happier.

Go to parties. Go to games. Go to class when you can. If there’s a concert, go to that. Do bar crawls. Climb Mount Nittany. Get involved with clubs and other stuff around campus. Hell, if you and your roommate want to go get lunch in Pittsburgh, get in a car and go to Pittsburgh. Doing spontaneous stuff is the best thing about college. So do spontaneous stuff. Worry about real life later. It’s more fun that way.

The decisions of thousands of Penn State alumni over the course of the next few dozen hours will decide the fate of this election. These races have become extremely competitive, and I believe this year’s victors will be determined by a few hundred votes.

We are writing to you as students and soon-to-be alumni to explain why it’s important for you to vote in this year’s Board of Trustees election. The Penn State community is divided and students certainly notice. There are some alumni who are fixated on the past scandal and others who are looking to the future… our future.

I came into my Penn State experience with a bit of dread and a lot of uncertainty. But every person throughout my Penn State journey has left their unique hand print on my life- and for that, I am thankful. Every year I have learned not just in the classroom, but especially outside of it. Here are some of those lessons.

I wish I could say I had some grand advice I learned over the past four years, but I can’t because I still don't have most of the answers. As I sit here thinking about the mistakes I’ve made, I realize I wouldn’t want to change any of them. Each speed bump brought me to where I am today, and for that, I am forever grateful. So rather than leave you with a piece of advice I learned, I’d like to thank the people who defined my college experience. Although I can’t name everyone, I’d like to thank some of the people who helped me along the way. Without all of you, I don’t know where I’d be today.

Most of us have now learned better than to put our implicit trust in the CATA app with its frequent crashes and occasionally unreliable information, but is there any hope that we can one day track our beloved Loops and Links with peace of mind?
