Penn State's student blog




As you can see, we’ve posted significantly less over break than we did while school was in session. There just hasn’t been a lot going on… other than the Rose Bowl of course.

A week from today, second semester will begin at Penn State. This will be Onward State’s first true semester, and we’re excited for it.

We’re going to be introducing new features and refining old ones. We’re always looking for feedback, so if there’s anything you’d like to see us cover or cover in a different way, please send us an email or leave a comment!

(Additionally, if you’re interested in contributing to Onward State, let us know!)

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.
