@AbolishCancer Taps Twitter Love for @THON

I wonder if Andrea Miller knows what she’s getting herself into.

Only a few weeks after Pat Howley pledged to donate $1 for every follower that @AbolishCancer got on January 29th to THON, Miss Miller is choosing to do the same. Pat Howley (a junior at Penn State) wound up with a $1700 pledge to back up after the THON twitter account exploded with popularity. An outpouring of support from students, alumni, even IFC/PHC resulted in Pat’s pledge ballooning to over $6000 being donated to the philanthropy.

Today’s the day to help THON by way of Andrea Miller. For every follower that @AbolishCancer gets today, Miss Miller has pledged to donate $1. According to Abolish Cancer’s website, Miss Miller is a recent Penn State grad who decided to participate in the pledge program because she feels that “no child should ever have to experience cancer.” Miss Miller has pledged to sponsor up to 200 followers, but here’s to hoping that she’s able to receive a few matching donations, a la Mr. Howley.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
