Movin’ On: They’re Doing Work, Son

With a little pushing and lots of comments on my ideal Movin' On lineup, the ball seems to be rolling a little faster. Movin' On's third survey was released yesterday, trimming many of the artists who had been on the the previous survey.

This time students rate the artists individually from a scale of 1 to 5. A few of my ideas (and many of yours) made it into this list of potential artists.

Synthetic Meth Hazardous, Should be Illegal in U.S.

If you have an odd feeling that spiders have burrowed under your skin or that the FBI has wire-tapped your dorm room, you may be one of the many to discovered the legal high, bath salt. Described by some as synthesized meth, should this newest fix in the recreational drug scene be taken off of the market? Or do the people of this country have the right to stay up for days and scratch holes in their necks?

Bar Tour App Quenches Thirst

Some students have already caught the sweeping trend, but for others that haven't, the PSU Bar Tour App is here! Those unfamiliar with the app should know that it is a complete list of every bar and their specials for the night, including the bands and happy hour times. For many students, this is a lifesaver. I mean, who doesn't love a complete list of bars in the palm of their hands? The app also include a unique GPS function to locate the bars near you as well as specific dates of specials. Week summaries are also available on the app.

ATO Sentenced in Furnishing Case

The Collegian is reporting that one month after being found guilty of furnishing alcohol to minors, Alpha Tau Omega fraternity was sentenced to pay a $500 fine and serve community service.

The misdemeanor charge stems from the September 19, 2009 evening in which freshman Joe Dado was found dead in an exterior stairwell between Hosler and Steidle buildings. This is the second misdemeanor furnishing charge brought against Alpha Tau Omega by the Centre County District attorney. The first charge was dismissed last July.
