A Win for Onward State is a Win for Penn State

posterityWow… yesterday marked the three month anniversary of this blog’s launch. It’s a happy coincidence that the U.S. News & World Report Best Alternative Media contest ended yesterday too. I just wish we had another Girl Talk rumor to put up, in honor of our very first post.

Thanks to the incredible efforts of our friends, families, and readers (especially the readers), we pulled out a last minute victory!

Onward State has been in existence for just a couple of months, but it managed to muster thousands of votes to win this thing. These Penn Staters asked nicely, then they issued death threats, but I think the clincher was when one blogger offered to prostitute himself out as Green Man from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Whatever it was (Facebook, families, a giant student body, a legitimately good blog), Onward State eked through at the end with 24.76 percent of the vote.

We’re super pumped about the win, but we’re even more excited to see where we are in another three months. As always, we’re here for y’all, our readers. Drop us a line if there’s anything you’d like to see on Onward State.

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.
