Both State College and Penn State offer a wide variety of entertainment options, from 26 bars and clubs in the downtown area to a number of music and performance venues, including the Bryce Jordan Center and The State Theatre. Happy Valley has hosted such performing greats as Kanye West, Bruce Springsteen, Florida Georgia Line, and The Weeknd. Student groups like SOMA and SPA also provide both national acts and student art and entertainment on campus and the community is home to an up-and-coming local music scene.
It has been a long and sad couple of days for us here in Happy Valley. With the passing of our beloved Joe Paterno, we once again are reminded of how precious life is and how important it is to live for more than just ourselves.
With that in mind, we are reminded that THON is just a few weeks away and the Penn State community has an opportunity to come together for some music, fun and fundraising for a cause which we all hold so dear.
The Songwriters Club will be hosting concerts tonight and tomorrow night that will feature many student acts to benefit THON.
