Historical Exhibit Commemorates PSU Heritage

Most Penn State students are familiar with staple historical landmarks on campus like Old Main and the Lion Shrine. What most students don't realize is that over 70 historical markers and buildings decorate the beautiful west side of campus. On top of that, Penn State has a history of considerable accomplishments in the fields of engineering, agriculture, nuclear science and bio-mechanics.

A photo-exhibition, honoring just a part of Penn State's vast heritage, is currently on display at the Hintz-Alumni Center until June 8. The 32 pictures, which are hanging in Robb Hall, can be divided into three main categories: prominent people, historical buildings and noteworthy accomplishments.

Men’s Volleyball EIVA Championship

Penn State will host the Eastern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association men's volleyball championship on Thursday and Saturday and are the favorites to win the title for the eleventh consecutive time. However, if the regular season was any indication, the team will have to play at or near their best to win the title.


On Thursday, Penn State will take on Springfield College. The winner will advance to play either Princeton or George Mason on Saturday. The winner of the championship game will get one of the three guaranteed berths to the NCAA semifinals.


Find out why the EIVA championship is especially important this year after the jump.

Onward State Spring Tweet Up on Thursday

Onward State is happy to announce that it will be hosting a spring tweet up on Thursday afternoon at 4:30 pm somewhere on the Penn State campus. The weather is forecast to be in the mid 60s. An exact location will be announced soon-- we're trying to figure out the best spot to hold it.


The tweet up is not just an opportunity to see your favorite writers and editors though. You'll also get an early taste of State College's newest culinary trend: cupcakes. Sugar on Top will be providing four different flavors of cupcakes for the event, including their "soon-to-be-famous" pancake and bacon variety.

Remote Printing – Avoid Lines in the Lab

As an employee for the ITS Lab Consulting Group here on campus, I spend a lot of time each week in computer labs. I also see a lot of people waiting in lines just to get on a computer. While other users in the lab are checking Facebook or watching the newest episode of LOST, you need to log on and print out that file for your project! Did you know that you can use your laptop computer to print on campus? If not, today is your lucky day!


Remote printing has been around for a couple of years now, but it   definitely could be more utilized. There are printers all across  campus that are capable of receiving remote print jobs. Some of these include the Atherton, Pollock, Waring, and Redifer labs, Thomas Building, and the HUB. With the ability to print to either black & white printers or color printers, you'll never need to wait in line again at the computer lab to print something out.


Find out how to do it after the jump!
