Rodney Erickson Has Questions To Answer

As part of his pledge for transparency, President Rodney Erickson will host his second Town Hall Forum today at 4:30 in the HUB Auditorium. The event will also be live streamed.

How to Make Healthy Choices in the Dining Halls

As an on-campus student, I find myself eating at dining halls more often than not. One thing I hear fellow students complain about is the lack of healthy food options in the dining halls.

Bar Wars: Cafe 210 vs. Mad Mex

This week's competition is between the two most well-known outdoor patio bars in State College: Cafe 210 West and Mad Mex. Let's be honest, when it's 75 degrees and sunny outside, there are few things better than (legally) drinking outside. The two downtown establishments with the largest outdoor seating areas are Cafe 210 West and Mad Mex. Both of these places have large patios which are perfect for soaking in the sun and downing a few choice beverages. Let the battle begin.
