President Obama’s (Fake) Itinerary

We at Onward State know that the President is a very busy man, and almost every minute of his life is scheduled for him. We’ve decided to lend him a hand and point him towards some of the best spots on campus and in State College to visit while he is here. Let us know if you have any other suggestions for him below!

10:00 am – Air Force One makes an emergency landing on the Old Main Lawn after being unable to locate the tiny University Park Airport.

1:00 pm – After giving his speech, the President is sure to be hungry. You can catch him grabbing a slice in the HUB’s newest eatery.

2:00 pm – For those of you who missed the President’s speech in Rec Hall, you can catch him taking over for the Willard Preacher on Thursday afternoon.

2:30 pm – The President takes a quick bus tour around campus to see the sights. Who needs a motorcade when you have CATA’s trusty services at hand?

1600 – President Obama likes to unwind by shooting some hoops. Sorry kids, the IM Building is closed for the afternoon. And President Obama took all of the free Clif Bar samples.

1800 – The President stops at Cafe 210 W for dinner and a few drinks. It’s too bad it’s not Cafeoke Tuesday, we hear he does a great rendition of “Replay”.

1930 – No trip to Penn State is complete without a stop at the Creamery. Will he continue the Presidential tradition of mixing flavors? Or perhaps he’ll make a special request for one of his own themed ice cream flavors.

2100 – President Obama makes his way to State College’s hottest night club. We hear he’s a great dancer.

So there you have it, the ultimate Penn State visit for President Obama. Maybe he’ll enjoy it enough to come back and celebrate State Patty’s Day.
