“Let There Be Light,” Said the Greeks

On December 7 (for those of you already befuddled from studying, we mean tonight), the Greek community will do what they do best. As part of the 2010 edition of the Holiday Lights Tour, fraternities will compete with each other over who has the best something for bragging rights. The “something,” in this case, is holiday decorations. It combines the spirit of the holiday season with practice for one-upping the neighbors’ holiday trimmings, a valuable skill most of us will need later in life.

The event is open and free to students and the rest of the State College populace. Reportedly, free refreshments will be offered to onlookers.  This year, the starting point is the Acacia Fraternity on 234 Locust Lane. The whole shebang runs from 6 to 9 p.m., and is sponsored by the Interfraternity and Panhellenic Council with help from the Off Campus Student Union.

The 3 Keys to Never Graduating

It is that time of year again. The weather is getting warmer when it feels like it and we switch to shorter pants just as the insects begin to multiply. It is a magical time of year that some of us will see for the last time in State College. For those lucky few, not going to class this week is a sign of maturity. With a college degree ensured, the world awaits you. Unless you’re in the Liberal Arts, of course. Then, your mother’s couch awaits you. However, there exist among us the ones that dare to take it to the next level. The ones that can’t get enough binge drinking, construction, and parking citations. The ones that will never graduate. How do they do it? Very, very smugly. These are the keys to never leaving Penn State.
