Penn State’s leadership undertook another exercise in futility at the Board of Trustees’ special meeting today, and most of it didn’t…
Like the many knots in an otherwise perfect string of Christmas lights, the lies in the Sandusky story are now relics of lazy indifference. It’s sad, indeed, that nearly everyone now agrees, the fate Paterno got was a fate he did not deserve. Frank Fina said inasmuch. Corbett has now said that. Bob Costas has admitted that.
Last night, our writers checked out California Tortilla and didn’t leave disappointed. It separates itself from the traditional burrito eateries in town, but we agreed it’s a refreshing restaurant that deserves a chance.
In this video documentary, we followed the process of the Ferguson protests’ leadership. As a group, the protestors felt subjugated by the justice system, and they hoped to bring that to light.
Penn State football needs to take a page out of the basketball team’s book. That’s a sentence you don’t hear often, if at all, but with Pat Chamber’s squad hitting seven wins — one more than football had all season — by early December, perhaps it isn’t such a crazy idea for James Franklin to start emulating his colleague. But where to start? Well, how about throwback jerseys?
Each semester, every student enrolled at Penn State University Park must pay a $120 Facility Fee. These fees are pooled together and used on improvements and expansions to non-academic, recreational, and multi-use space for students. The usage of the fee is decided by the Facilities Fee Advisory Committee (FFAC), and it wants your input!
Penn State has a few options for its first bowl game since 2011. Our staff debated which is the best of them.
Penn State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop is not one of five finalists for the Broyles Award, and that’s bullshit.
I’ve learned that our former chair has a martyr-complex, and that despite having brought a lot of energy to his former position, the former chair made the conscious decision- thrice — to put his ego and self-righteousness above his mission of serving graduate and professional students. We can do better than that. And we will.
This article is being published so that all graduate and professional students may be informed with facts, and not hearsay or opinions. I strongly consider you to read the factual information contained therein and decide for yourself if GPSA is serving you well.
The relationship between coach and player is a bond like no other, and is often a major factor affecting on-field performance. In just its first year, the relationship that has developed between Penn State defensive coordinator Bob Shoop and his players is special, and so far, the unit’s play reflects that relationship.
Whether you’ve noticed or not, since the fall semester began on Aug. 25, 2014, a dozen instances of sexual assault have been reported at Penn State.
Just two days after being embarrassed in the biggest incumbent defeat in the history of Pennsylvania gubernatorial elections, Tom Corbett is changing his tune on Joe Paterno.
From Kildare’s to Five Guys, downtown State College features many different places at which one can get a burger. With variations in everything from the bread to the cheese to the beef, each burger joint offers its own unique interpretation on the iconic American food. But who does it best in Happy Valley? Just like we did with wings and drunk pizza, we had some of our staff’s carnivores debate which burger is State College’s best.
If Maryland coach Randy Edsall gets his way, Penn State and Maryland will soon call one another rivals. Obviously, there is work to be done for that to become a reality.
We’re trying to figure out why Mike Hull isn’t one of the 15 semifinalists for the Butkus Award. We’re failing.
Here at Onward State, we’d like you to be able to enjoy your Whiteout experience this weekend without being “that kid” while hopefully capturing the same energy level. Late starts are a beautiful thing. Being able to sleep in, starting to tailgate in the afternoon instead of early morning, and watching a game under the lights at Beaver Stadium is the basis for a perfect day in any Penn Stater’s book.
Tailgating is a lifestyle. “I Tailgate With the Best” is one of the most popular Penn State-themed shirts, and every football Saturday includes tens of thousands of people using parking lots, intramural fields and fraternity yards to get smashed, grill, and of course compete. Here, we have for you the definitive power ranking of tailgate games.
The UPUA meeting on October 22 was the greatest learning experience of my life. The statement I am making here is to share my experience, intentions and provide an apology for the inconsistencies in my words, actions and votes.
With so many venues to choose from in State College. Passion ensues as our staff debates who has the best wings in town.
Over the weekend, the 2015 Senior Class Gift Committee announced the three finalists for this year’s class gift. Seniors have three extremely different options to leave their mark on Penn State, and are able to vote for their favorite gift online by midnight Saturday. With that said, three of our senior writers present our latest Onward Debate: Which Senior Class Gift is the best?
Somehow, just over six weeks into the semester, it’s time to start thinking about where you’re living next year. State College boasts numerous beautiful livable apartment buildings, as well as houses, and, of course, dorms. Choosing which apartment, house, or dorm to live in is no easy task, so we here at Onward State want to help you take the first step in choosing — deciding whether to live on or off campus.
Despite riding an ugly two game losing streak, the Penn State Nittany Lions are still bowl eligible, and only need to win two more games in order to ensure that they will be playing this postseason. If the past two games have been any indication, Penn State, which sits at 4-2, will most likely be out of the inaugural four team playoff race, barring any freak occurrences. With that said, there are a number of notable bowl games that the team could wind up playing in come December.
Saturday’s performance was an embarrassing display of offensive ineptitude, mind-numbing play call decisions, and laughable time management. Not only did James Franklin shoot the team in the foot repeatedly, but he stood by the questionable decisions made after the game. Heading into yet another bye week, the Nittany Lions have numerous issues to address, hoping to right this ship before it becomes too late.
