Penn State Considering ‘Hydration Stations’

Green is cool (ex, Green Man). That’s why we’re excited OPP is considering the installation of ‘hydration stations‘ throughout campus. These white wonders contain water filtration systems that provide water as good as bottled water. Not sure if that means much, since most bottled water is just tap water anyways, but still this would be sick.

And, come on, didn’t you always get a little grossed out by water fountains? It’s so weird to put your lips all over the metal… everyone else does that, right?

Below is a mock-up of what the hydration stations would look like if Penn State were an elementary school instead of a college. Look how much fun they’re having! I want to go to there.

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.
