The Ablogable Snowstorm

Since the entire state of Pennsylvania is covered in a giant snow blob, we thought it would be appropriate to share a screenshot to show the severity of the issue. Is anyone up for a snow-shoe race?

Who’s Who: The Chapters Behind Their Letters

Joining a sorority was never on my list of things to do. The intensity of formal recruitment intimidated me and the number of chapters on campus was terrifying. Three years later, I can’t imagine life without my sorority. Hopefully I can encourage you to check out some of the smaller, lesser known Greek organizations on campus – one of which I’m actually a sister of.

Sanderson Squad Heading Towards National Championship

It has been since 1953 when the last Penn State wrestling team– or any east coast school for that matter– won a national championship , but with an 11-0 record and a No. 2 ranking the 2011 squad is heading in the right direction to break the 58 year drought.

The No. 2-ranked Nittany Lions will continue their national championship campaign on national television against No. 22 Pittsburgh on Friday in Rec Hall.

UPUA Passes Legislation, Despite Bureaucratic Struggles

Last night’s University Park Undergraduate Association was a tough one to sit through. The end result of it was productive but we should have been out of there a lot sooner. As a constituent who can vote (as most of you probably can too), it was frustrating to see my elected representatives bickering over minute, largely irrelevant details rather than putting the appropriate focus on crucial aspects of the issues.

Let me say before I begin: a lot of good things came out of this meeting, but the way the Assembly looked at them, the spirit of conducting business, was far less than ideal—there was way too much emphasis on politics in itself, red tape, and bureaucracy.

Johnson’s Last-Second Jumper Downs Penn State

When a team shoots better than 50% from the field, wins the rebounding battle by 11, and is perfect from the free throw line in an away game, you normally wouldn’t expect them to lose. Then again, Penn State isn’t a normal team.

Once again, coaching ineptitude cost the Nittany Lions players a victory that they rightly deserved.
