Ingrosso and Alesso Light Up BJC

EDM superstar Sebastian Ingrosso, one-third of supergroup Swedish House Mafia, performed at the Bryce Jordan Center last night along with openers Alesso, a rising star in the genre, and David Solano, a regular Dayglow DJ.

Back By Popular Demand: A Visit From State Patrick

A year ago, I was challenged to come up with a poem about State Patty's Day to which I said, "Challenge accepted". A Visit From State Patrick was born and posted the day before State Patty's 2011.

While the Republicans arrived ready to handle the attacks from three other parties, their preparation was for naught. The three other political organizations did not attend.

We Are Not State Patty’s

State Patty’s Day has become a problem for the Penn State community and it’s time that somebody other than the university makes an effort to stop it.

We’re asking all students, not just Greeks, to support the decisions we’ve made regarding Saturday and to take part in the other activities we’ve made available.
