Last Night’s Penn State Party

Onward State had a busy night! First, we enjoyed a nice set of acoustic performances at Starbucks. Then we came back and relaxed with a little Arrested Development before heading out to an apartment party. It was, in short, an ideal evening. There’s a lot of content after the jump– some commentary on the music and many pictures.

The performance at Starbucks was good. Unfortunately, we didn’t catch the name of the first girl who played, but it was a fun set that included a cover of Sixpence None the Richer’s Kiss Me. Next, Reagan and Mario performed a few songs. We liked how Reagan’s voice worked in the context of the songs– it reminded us of Regina Spektor’s earlier songs. [Check out Poor Little Rich Boy if you’re interested; it’s one of my favorite songs.]

Now, on to the next part of the night. We wanted to take this opportunity to explain the Last Night’s Penn State Party feature more thoroughly.

We hope to take the pulse of Penn State nightlife through our Last Night’s Penn State Party feature. Our emphasis is not on the individuals. We believe that institutions are defined as the aggregate of all the personal relationships in its community. With that definition in mind, parties are a good lens through which we can view Penn State; parties are indeed the point of convergence for many relationships.

We also understand that it is unusual to see photographers at events like apartment parties. We hope that as Onward State matures and its audience grows, the presence of an Onward State photographer will feel more comfortable.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
