It isn’t easy going back to the life of classwork after straight boozing for a full 18-or-so hours. Penn State, as a whole, just went H.A.M this weekend and the start of the week couldn’t be more loathed. So, in order to suspend reality, we have some hilarious YouTube videos for tools of procrastination. Not just any viral vids, State Patty’s Day madness that has made the web. Call it, State.0.

But OnPoint is looking to expand its horizons, and to do so its members are holding a meeting this Sunday for anyone interested in joining.
The Academy Awards are tonight, but if you’re looking for last-minute advice in your Oscar pool, well, we’re not here to help you. We here at Onward State have quite the assemblage of movie buffs, and we figured it would be far more interesting to go around the table and pick who we think should win.

Whoever said State Patty’s day was just for the kids clearly didn’t have their heads on straight, because as of 10:30 a.m. this morning, there are old-timers taking part in today’s activities. How old do you ask?
42-years-old, to be exact.
Earlier this morning, a 42-year-old male was found running down Allen Street, stealing parking tickets from cars’ windshields. According to State College police, the man’s blood alcohol content was .364. That’s just one of the many incidents reported from this morning.
