Tree Swings for PSU!

I don’t know of you guys have heard of this movement on campus to get tree swings put up but it sounds awesome.

The idea came to Samuel Borchers and Stephanie Herbstritt after swinging around on one at a local college by Sam’s home town. Initially, the two planned on buying the materials themselves and having friends help them install the swings under the cover of night, but eventually they decided they wanted the swings to stay hung once they were up, so the duo took their plan public.

They are in contact with several student government officials (they recently spoke at the January 21st UPUA meeting), working on setting up meetings with OPP, and finding a contact in the Alumni Association to spark interest in having tree swings hung in honor of people or in memory of them, in order to fund materials and maintenance.

Anyone interested in donating money to the project or having a swing hung in someone’s memory should contact Stephanie.

If you want to reclaim those lazy childhood summers of yore join the Facebook group or sign the petition in the HUB and show your support for Tree Swings for PSU.

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
