Onward State Goes to Cafe Laura

The first thing to come out of our waiter’s mouth at our Cafe Laura experience: “Welcome to the Seven Deadly Sins… thing. I’m bad at this. What can I say?” And that quote pretty much sums up our evening at Cafe Laura.

For those of you who do not know, each HRIM student is required to work a semester at Cafe Laura. Each student learns how to cook, serve, take reservations, and plan a whole dinner with a selected group. Onward State decided to check out the Se7en: Food to Die For dinner that took place on March 14th. Check out our collaborative review of the evening after the jump.

Soon after being named the university’s new president, Rodney Erickson proclaimed that he wanted to transform Penn State “from a football factory to a world-class research institution.” We all know that this school has been recognized for the prolific, field-defining research that has taken place on this campus, but it’s not often that we get a chance to see a collection of the analysis of our fellow students like that which will be showcased at the ninth annual College of Engineering Research Symposium (CERS 2012), taking place on Thursday in the Nittany Lion Inn.

Bar Wars: Indigo vs. Levels

Okay, so we’re starting off our “Bar Wars” series backwards here…but let’s be honest: you have to end up at a club at the end of the night. It’s important to conclude any night in a fun atmosphere, especially a bar tour. After drinking all day, you’ll want an exciting environment. The club selection at PSU is… let’s go with, limited, so we took the two clubs downtown and put them head-to-head in this week’s Bar Wars challenge. So what’s it gonna be? Indigo or Levels? Andrew Tarr took the task of going to both Indigo and Levels to rank the two via several categories. The results are after the jump.
