Penn State Live Trivia

So you think you know everything there is to know about the Pennsylvania State University? Well, just in time for the end of finals, the folks over at Penn State Live have another test for you.

The test requires you to answer twelve quirky questions. Worst of all, there’s no way for you to prepare. No amount of study time will help you with this exam, but on the plus side, it doesn’t affect your GPA.

One of the questions I found interesting was:

1. Penn State’s University Libraries ranks among the ten largest academic libraries in North America, by collection size, with Pattee and Paterno Libraries at the University Park campus containing the majority of the holdings. How many linear miles of shelf space are there in Pattee and Paterno Libraries combined?
a. 40 miles
b. 25 miles
c. 7 miles
d. 3 miles

Wow! All of those numbers are huge. They should really ask easier questions like, “What does Simmons Dining Hall always serve for dinner on Tuesdays?” The answer: Fish, of course. That’s about the limit of my Penn State knowledge.

Good luck Penn State Scholars, you’ll need it.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
