Football! Your Blue-White Game Preview

It's that time of year again. Thousands of fans pack into Beaver Stadium for a game that means absolutely nothing for records or statistics. But the end of spring practice is here, and we get our first look at the 2011 Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday in the annual Blue-White Game. Although there are injuries to 19 different players on the spring roster, we're offering a preview of the things you'll (hopefully) see on the field this weekend.

Campus is a beautiful place to be, but one that takes an enormous amount of hard work to maintain. Fortunately, students have the opportunity to lend a helping hand to make the transition into a warm weather campus a little smoother.

How I Got Elected to UPAC

Did you know that, in addition to being accepted through an application process, a number of UPAC members are elected during the UPUA election season? Yeah, prior to last month, neither did I. And neither, it would seem, did many of the other 39,999 students at University Park.

Men in Heels Fight Against Violence

Don't be surprised if you see a large group of young men walking around campus in high heels on April 29th. Penn State's Men Against Violence will be hosting "Walk a Mile in her Shoes" in conjunction with IFC, athletics, faculty, and staff two weeks from now as part of an awareness campaign against sexual assault and all violence against women. The event is set to take place at noon and will begin at Boucke building.
