Last Friday, the art and music club, SOMA (Students Organizing the Multiple Arts), organized a mobile music showcase titled Keyboard CATA. Participants played live music on the White/Blue Loops for unsuspecting passengers. Is this just the first step toward a more musically-conscience Penn State? Or nothing more than a street performance?
Keith Somers (senior, finance) has created a company that will service the finest Penn State students. Party Service Unlimited LLC’s first installment is a white, 14-seater bus that can be rented out for tailgates. You may have seen this bus blaring Ke$ha and promoting itself while traveling around campus. DJ services by resident DJ D-Goodz are included with the bus rental, as well as snacks and drinks! The bus service aims to create a fun, safe environment for Penn State students. I had a chance to meet with Keith and take a ride on the bus last Friday night (cue Katy Perry music) and had a blast. Both Keith and DJ D-Goodz have great energy and know how to take care of their clients.
Yesterday evening, the 2012 THON Captains received a long-awaited knock on their doors, informing them of their new positions. In lieu of the addition to this year’s THON assembly, committee member applications are now available, and we know you’re itching to fill them out.
Freshmen, on your way back home from a long day of classes, you can stop by the East Halls Quad from 5-7 p.m. for Freshfest, hosted by the University Park Undergraduate Association.
The 2011 football season kicked off this past Saturday, and along with it began a new era for the Penn State student section. General admission seating may have some worked up, but why?
Penn State steamrolled Indiana State, 41-7, on Saturday. Using the magic of digital video recording, along with my time in the press box, I was able to come up with four things from the game against Indiana State that will also be key for the upcoming week against Alabama.
Zone Week began yesterday, officially kicking off the Fall 2011 IFC recruitment process. Houses will have their doors open from 6pm-10pm for the next two days hoping to attract recruits into a meet and greet that they won’t blackout.
