Recovering From Thirsty Thursday

The Illini’s “Unofficial” State Patrick’s Day

Every year, we Penn Staters take pride in our celebration of State Patrick’s Day.  The fact that we chose to celebrate the holiday famous for drinking copious amounts of alcohol on the weekend, instead of March 17 (on a Tuesday this year), is a testament to our awesomeness and respect for our own education.

Both of these bands were large successes in the 90’s pop-rock genre and continued to shine tonight after a […]
