Wear White Against Michigan and Show Up Before 7

Surprising nobody, the Michigan-Penn State game Saturday night has been officially acknowledged as a student whiteout. The planning has been in the work for months now, ever since the Temple White House ticket snafu, but this marks the first time that Intercollegiate Athletics has acknowledged the student movement.

As is to be expected, Facebook was the primary motivation behind this movement, with the “WHITE OUT VS MICHIGAN” Facebook group having over 12,000 confirmed guests.

Another Facebook movement has been making the rounds this week regarding the Michigan game. “Project 7” aims to fill the student section by kickoff, asking students to be in line or in their seats no later than 7 p.m. The group has close to 5,000 confirmed guests at the time of writing, and notes that the students “relaxed into complacency” following being deemed the “Best Student Section in the Nation” in 2005.

Regardless of the numbers and the medium, the message is clear: Show up early, wear white.

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.
