Become A Part of the Onward State Community

Do you have a story that you think should be told?

Whether you want to write about your experience studying abroad, why you’ll miss eating in Simmons, who you think the starting quarterback should be, or anything else that you think Penn State students should know about, you can have your voice heard thanks to Onward State’s Community Content.

We pride ourselves in being as interactive and involved as possible with the Penn State student body, and part of that is encouraging you, the reader, to contribute your own content.

Penn State is full of great people with “ideas worth spreading”, and we want Onward State to be the place where those ideas are shared with the entire Penn State community.

Wondering how you can contribute to the Onward State Community? All you have to do is:

  • Go to
  • Select “Submit” (located in the top-left of the screen) then “Submit Content
  • Paste your story into the “Body”, fill out the rest of the forms, and submit!
Things to keep in mind:
  • No writing experience is needed. All you need is a story or subject you think should be talked about!
  • Try to keep your post between 500-800 words.
  • The topic should be related to Penn State or issues relevant to Penn State students.
  • A creative title will draw readers in, so make sure to put some thought into yours.
  • Try to use your best grammar, but don’t worry too much. Our editors will help you out with that.
  • After it’s published, share it with your friends and family!
We hope to see you submit a Community post soon, and thanks for reading!
