It's not always the easiest to find out when stuff is going on at Penn State. While many organizations offer calendars of events, none of them are comprehensive, and you may miss out on a cool concert or exhibit if you're only checking one source.
OnwardState.com and The Lion 90.7fm are partnering to bring you PSUEvents.com. The new service will provide a centralized, open-source events database, free for media outlets serving the Penn State and State College communities. Student groups and other organizations will be able to submit their events on PSUEvents.com, and have them appear on any calendar using the service.

Thomas Richards, a Schreyer Scholar and incoming member of the Presidential Leadership Academy, died early this morning after having a seizure. The tragic incident occurred at Camp Blue Diamond where Tom was a teaching assistant for this year's Leadership Jumpstart class.
At the time of his death, Tom was about to enter his sophomore year, studying political science and history.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be finalized. Onward State wishes to extend its deepest sympathies to the Richards family and Tom's friends during this difficult time.
The men's and women's cross country teams will look to build on the success of last season when they take to the course at the Lock Haven Dolan Duals on September 3rd.
The women finished 14th last season at the NCAA Cross Country Championships, thanks in part to recently-graduated Bridget Franek. Franek finished 26th in the competition, earning her an All-America performance. She became only the ninth Penn State woman to earn an All-America citation in the NCAA era.
With Franek and 111th-place finisher Cheryl Spring graduating, the duty will fall to the other runners from last year's NCAA championship team. This includes junior Caitlin Lane (86th place), sophomore Nicole Lord (94th), junior Kara Millhouse (142nd), sophomore Brooklyne Ridder (200th), and sophomore Natalie Bower (206th).
Check out how the men's team is faring after the jump.
