The 2010 Census is upon us, and five Penn State students are determined to count every man, woman, and child in Centre County.
Laura Peck, Jennifer Wallington, Emily Franklin, Kate Wiedie, and Emily Simmons formed "Count Centre County" to compete in this year's Public Relations Student Society of America's National Bateman Competition. They're especially targeting groups with low return rates, namely rural populations and college students.
Count Centre County, a community outreach organization, will host informative events during the month of February to maximize the county's participation in the Census this year. The group will make appearances in the HUB and residence halls, so be sure to participate.
Students comprise roughly three quarters of State College, so a lack of Census participation on our part could drastically alter the results for Centre County.
Check out the group's Facebook and Twitter pages for more details.
Craigslist is a big, and sometimes scary, place. Craigslist Penn State is no exception. In an effort to better serve you, our reader, we have started an new effort to highlight listings we feel should be shared with the greater Penn State audience.
We hope we can find what you're looking for.
This is probably a long shot but I feel the need to address what happened today.
I appreciate that you found my book and called the number to give it back to me. When I saw you walking up with it I was awestruck by your beauty. Usually I don't run away from beautiful girls but.. I just couldn't control my reaction. I'm sorry I turned and ran away, subsequently falling down a staircase. I also am aware it may look like I soiled myself shortly after falling down the stairs but this was not the case, I was carrying Hershey's chocolate bars in my back pocket and became very sweaty and hot when I saw you and they were probably crushed while I fell down the stairs. This is the best explanation.. of course the other is that I actually did soil myself which is not entirely impossible but it's been a few weeks since that's happened otherwise so it seems unlikely.
Er.. anyway, I really do need my book back. I promise if you meet up to give it to me I won't run away or shit all over the place this time.
If not can you please email me questions 2 - 15 and question 17 for Chapter 1? Thanks.
I totally feel for you man, this is how I react every time I see an attractive girl on campus. Like a deranged lemming, I just make a beeline for the nearest stairwell and throw myself down it.
