Stock Market Summer Camp

Penn State offers over 160 undergraduate majors – no doubt a daunting number. The average college student changes majors two or three times throughout their college career. I’d be willing to bet that many of you reading this haven’t declared a major yet or are unsure if the one you’re currently in is “the one.” Wouldn’t it have been nice to have been exposed to what a particular major entails before you took the $14,000 leap?

This coming July, Penn State’s Smeal College of Business is offering a “Stock Market Madness Camp: An Introduction to Trading and Analysis.” The cost of the one week program ranges between $395 and $825 and will allow campers to get a glimpse into the fast paced world of finance and the stock market.

Throughout their stay at University Park, students will compete in and trade in simulated markets, meet with and learn from finance professors and students, polish Excel skills, work in teams to pick apart real life companies, and compete in daily competitions for some pretty dank prizes. Campers will be buried in state of the art technology and surrounded by seasoned professionals–they’ll even learn how poker strategies can be applied to investing.

Campers will be shown far more than just hidden rooms in the Business Building. Throughout the week, those attending will be taken on field trips to the campus pool, Beaver Stadium, Sports Museum, the Creamery, and a State College Spikes baseball game.

Unfortunately, the camp isn’t offered to Penn State students. Rather, it’s designed for high schoolers grades 10-12. However, if you have a brother, sister, niece, neighbor, or future poker protégé interested in learning more about the camp, direct them here to register.

Four Diamonds Video Explains Roots

The word THON has left the lips of nearly every single Penn State student at least once for the past 37 years. In the same vein, nearly every student and alumni have a general idea of what THON is all about. If you were to survey any one student still awake in a 100 Thomas lecture, he would probably respond with ” it’s the largest student-run philanthropy” or ‘”it’s FTK.” Both correct. But what if you were to ask how it got started, or what exactly the Four Diamonds represent–would they know?


Recently, Onward State got a hold of a new video vignette released by The Four Diamonds Fund. The video, featuring Four Diamonds visionaries Charles and Irma Millard, Tucker Haas, and countless other Four Diamond Families, explains the roots of The Four Diamonds Fund and THON.


You can find out about the history of the Four Diamonds Fund and check out the video after the jump.
