Help Rename the Corner Pocket

Video games: a welcome addition to the Corner Pocket

If someone asked me to meet them at the Corner Pocket,  I probably would have thought they were drunk and headed over to the Corner Room on Allen.

With this logic, I would also end up alone.

Lo and behold, the Corner Pocket is actually a room in the HUB that, until recently, was strictly a billiards hall held near and dear to the hearts of pool sharks everywhere (or at least those on campus).

However, this hole-in-the-wall pool hall now includes much more than billiards. The Corner Pocket has been revamped and transformed into a general gaming lounge with features such as Dance Dance Revolution, Wii, PS3, Xbox 360 and a snooker table.

Although the inside of the Corner Pocket may have gotten a much needed makeover, we all know its what’s on the outside that counts.

So now the pressure is on YOU! The Corner Pocket is looking for a new name and logo and they want Penn State students to come up with it.

Submissions can be sent to the Corner Pocket’s manager, Keith Somers, at [email protected] or dropped off to Erin in 230 HUB until Oct. 15.

In case the sense of accomplishment and legendary status  isn’t enough to entice you, the winner will also receive over $150 in gift certificates to places downtown including Fresh Harvest Kafe, Quiznos, Student Bookstore, Dragon Chasers Emporium and Grillers Cafe.

Free food, fame and fortune- what are you waiting for?
