Know Your Rights on State Patty’s Day

This year, the State College community has focused all their efforts on fighting the "menace" that is State Patty's Day. They're bringing in the cavalry, police from beyond just Centre County in an attempt to halt our drunken revelry. But if you know your rights, your chances of making it through State Patty's with a clean record can rise exponentially.

Street Love Tour 2011: An Alternate State Patty’s

Looking for something to do Saturday that does not involve staying inside all day or being a State Patty's Day asshole? Alliance Christian Fellowship, Campus Crusade For Christ, and Navigators are teaming up for the first ever Street Love Tour.

The event, beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, is modeled after a house crawl, minus the alcohol. The Around-The-World-themed tour kicks off at 120 West Fairmount Avenue and will continue on to stops on Allen Street, Atherton Street, Burrowes Street, and Park Avenue.

Each location will be geared toward a certain country, and plenty of music, food, and drinks (non-alcoholic, of course) will be provided.

Battle Hits Milestone As Penn State Downs Northwestern

Talor Battle became the first Big Ten player in history to score 2,000 points, dish out 500 assists and grab 500 rebounds in his career with his 13-point, 3-assist performance on Thursday night as Penn State kept their slim tourney hopes alive by defeating Northwestern 66-52.

Penn State has two regular season games left to state their case for the NCAA Tournament. Games against Ohio State and Minnesota leading up to the Big Ten Tournament will be crucial to the Nittany Lions' Selection Sunday delegation.

Other Colleges Can Make Fake Holidays, Too!

State Patty’s has become a phenomenon here at Happy Valley and has given Penn State a fake holiday to call its own. Perhaps someday it will join the ranks of other cherished fake holidays, such as National Talk like a Pirate Day and Arbor Day. As it turns out, we have a lot of competition in the college drinking event arena. Other colleges have been scheduling days to champion the increased rate of liver failure for a long time. But how do their Beermitsvahs compare to our own SPD?

Astronaut & Spacey: Friday Alternatives

It has come to our attention that the music selection of the general population is less than admirable. Nickelback isn't cool. Gucci Mane isn't icy. Ke$ha is ugly. Being the philanthropists that we are, we have undertaken the calling for the creation of a less shitty/more diverse music scene here at Penn State. Ergo, we are proud to present to you: Friday Alternatives. Prepare yourself for a dive into the recesses of the alternative scene.
