Students Bare It All For Finals Study Break

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 poring over textbooks to streak down Mifflin Road and cross another thing off of their Penn State bucket list.

Started in 1977, the Mifflin Streak has become a traditional study break for Penn State students. There was no shortage of oddities this year as streakers came down on scooters, crutches and toy four-wheelers.

The streaker who gained the most notoriety Sunday night came to be known as Saxophone Guy. As you can guess, he calmly walked down the human tunnel, playing some smooth jazz tunes while feeling the breeze, gaining shouts and applause from the audience as he made his way down the road. When asked why he chose to partake in the Streak, he said, “Forty years from now, I can say that I fucking streaked down Mifflin Road.”

He also added that it was his buddy’s idea for him to play the sax, an instrument which Sax Guy had a “couple of years’ experience” with.
