A Field Guide to the Penn State Twitterati

If you haven’t noticed, we’re big fans of Twitter here at @OnwardState. For those of you who don’t tweet, though, it might seem like a confusing mess of @’s and #’s, follows and re-tweets. Here’s a guide to who of the Penn State Twitter community is worth following (in less than 140 characters).

@ANGELsucks – Want to know when you’re arbitrarily going to be unable to access ANGEL? This is the account for you.

@dailycollegian – The official account of everyone’s favorite student newspaper. They mostly link to their stories, and they are always working on an update.

@GoPSUSports1 – Penn State Athletics’ feed. You can find updates on all of Penn State’s sports teams.

@LAUSDeanLong – Christopher Long, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies for the College of Liberal Arts, tweets with students in his college.

@OldMainBell – Every hour – ding, ding & ding, ding! ding?

@SHCDean – Schreyer Honors College Dean Christian Brady has a feed full of interesting links, questions, and student interaction.

@StudentBodyPrez – Twitter account of Christian Ragland, this is one of the best ways to keep up-to-date with UPUA. He also has no days off.

This is far from a complete list. Those of you more avid tweeters, feel free to make more suggestions in the comments below.

UPDATE: Here’s some more names worth following, as suggested by our readers.

@ThisSquirrel – Enjoy getting IT info from a rodent? Follow this squirrel for Penn State/Tech related news.

@PalmerMuseum – Penn State’s best on campus art museum keeps you informed about museum and other arts events on campus.

@penn_state – While their choice of tweet topics has been questionable in the past, Penn State’s official twitter account is a great place to get general news about the University.

@TheLION907FM – A mix of music, pop culture and Penn State specific updates, the official account of the LION 90.7 FM is a must follow for fans of Penn State’s student run radio station.

@PennStateIFC – Greeks are a major part of our university, and the IFC keeps the community updated on their activities through their account.

@THON – As the biggest weekend for THON approaches, now is as good a time as any to follow the largest student-run philanthropy on twitter.

@SCNewsDesk – If you want info about what goes on in the town half of town-and-gown, StateCollege.com’s official account is your best bet.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day.
