Movin’ On Part 2?

n78207581270_1014No. It’s actually called “Wallypalooza”, riding the “palooza” wave spawned by “Lolla” and “Elmo“. It will be held on Thursday, April 30th, during the last week of classes, from 5-10 PM on the HUB lawn.

From the Facebook Event page:

The brainchild of elite Smeal College of Business Representative Michael Wallace, Wallypalooza is a festival which will be held on the HUB Lawn on the Thursday during the last week of classes. The idea came to Representative Wallace in the form of a dream on a brisk night in mid-October. In that dream, he saw children singing and dancing in the green, rolling pastures of Pennsylvania State University. The next morning, the idea for Wallypalooza was born.

From the Collegian:

As for the festival’s budget, Wallace said it will be around $62,000. That amount is slightly less than Movin’ On’s $67,870.19 budget this year, but Wallypalooza will also feature fewer acts.

“We’re planning on having four musical acts and a DJ,” Wallace said. “But we want to take it one step further and have it be like a festival.”

Several high-profile artists and sponsors are lined up for the show, but Wallace said the names can’t be released until the contracts are finalized.

In addition to musical acts, Wallace says that there will be concessions, a dunk tank, and other carnival-esque things.

The difference between this event and Movin’ On is that Wallypalooza is being run and funded by UPUA, while Movin’ On was funded by UPAC and presented by ARHS.

The Facebook group currently has 985 people attending, a number that is certain to go up. I’ll see you there!

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.
