Onward & Outward: Study Spots

For the past few weeks we've been taking you outside the confines of State College to explore a number of different day trip opportunities in the area. This week, however, we know that you're swamped with finals and leaving the library is probably out of the question, right? Not so fast. With a little bit of exploring, you can find the perfect new study spot on campus, away from the crowds during finals week, and we're here to help you. With the help of some of our readers, we've compiled a list of some of the lesser known study spots around campus.

On May 1, 2011 (a little more than nine and a half years after the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks), almost 6,000 Penn State students got that chance.

Students were dressed in Christmas lights, Mexican wrestling masks and somberos but nothing else on Sunday night as girls and boys took a break from pouring over textbooks to streak down Mifflin Road and cross another thing off of their Penn State bucket list. Look at Onward State's pictures of the event after the jump.
