Entertainment Promoters Deliver On Point

You may have heard of an organization that has been growing in popularity on campus. They market themselves as entertainment promoters and producers.

OnPoint Ent. is an organization that aims to help students unwind and relieve their stress, primarily through dance parties. If you’ve been to one of their events, you know their DJs lay down some serious tracks. But OnPoint is looking to expand its horizons.

I sat down with members of OnPoint to discuss their plans. They said they’re looking to expand their organization to accommodate several major changes and projects they are taking on, including promotional campaigns, an apparel line and even extending their services beyond State College.

But the members of OnPoint stressed some important policies they try to follow. First, they strive to comply with university policy. In fact, one of their new efforts includes looking for an adviser so they can become a university-recognized student organization. They also wish to set an example for the community. Finally, they want to keep their new initiatives, such as the clothing line, ecologically friendly.

Something else OnPoint stresses is the importance of planning. They said they discovered that when students don’t have good nights in terms of parties and socializing, it’s usually because of holes in, or complete lack of, planning. So they follow the mantra “We work hard so you can party harder.”

Some of the accomplishments they are most proud of include releasing some original music (including a certain campaign theme you may remember), helping hold the official Touch of Africa after party and most importantly their philanthropy involvement.

The OnPoint guys also said they couldn’t have made it this far without all of the students, organizations and leaders that have stood by them or helped them out since they started.

So if you’re interested in gaining some leadership experience with a unique organization that helps students unwind safely and is “always on point,” check out their new website, which launches today.

Switch the Right Decision

I’m probably the only person who has spent my entire college career almost evenly divided between working for The Daily Collegian and Onward State. I feel like this has given me a unique perspective on Penn State’s media scene. And I’ve learned a great deal from both media outlets.
