File Under: People More Outgoing Than Me

Great video from The Daily Collegian's Beth Ann Downey of last night's THON Morale Powwow. I have so much respect for Moralers and their ability to summon energy at a moment's notice. Also, they seem to be really good at wearing bright colors, so they have that going for them too.


First General Meeting of Innoblue @ UP

The first general meeting of Innoblue @ UP will be held this Thursday, January 27, at 8:00 pm in 102 Business. Innoblue @ UP is the registered student organization charged with advancing Innoblue Inc's interests at the Penn State University Park campus. That means the student org can qualify for funding to host events like Demo Day and offer some services to its student ventures.

Innoblue @ UP is headed by Innoblue lieutenant Drew Mohoric and it seems to be positioning itself as the go-to undergraduate club for students interested in consulting and entrepreneurship. Not sure what the Penn State Entrepreneurs Network will feel about that, but Innoblue hasn't minded entering an already occupied space before... I'm looking at you, Lion Launch Pad.

Greeks Reveal Goals for IFC/PHC Coalition

The Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council announced a partnership yesterday to create the IFC/PHC Community Coalition. The initiative is apparently the first of its kind; though the IFC, PHC, and the other two Greek councils have collaborated in the past, this seems to be the first time that the IFC and PHC have joined forces in a "official" way.

Onward State sat down yesterday afternoon with leadership from both of the councils to learn more about the plans. Led by IFC President Dan Florencio and PHC President Paige Rothaus, the IFC/PHC Community Coalition has three main policy initiatives at this point. Find out what they are, and what the significance of this announcement is, after the jump.
