Not Quite a Senior Column: David’s Parting Words

I joined Onward State in the Fall with the hope that I would be part of the group that was going to sustain this blog after the founders, Davis, Eli and Evan, graduated. It didn’t turn out that way. So it’s time for my good bye post. It’s not a senior column, since I’m not graduating and I’m not in undergrad anymore. Anyway, this is my good bye post.

The Soundtrack to Your Year

we’ve compiled a list of the songs that are bound to remind you of the 2011-2012 school year here at State. Whether they mark your first taste of freedom as a freshman or they represent a bittersweet goodbye for all you seniors, these tracks are certain to take up a special place in your heart from this point forward (even the overplayed ones—especially them).

Evan’s Senior Column: Let’s Get Weird

This is weird that this is my last Onward State post, right?

Like, I co-created this site with my buddy Eli and my randomly-assigned roommate (and buddy) Davis during the fall of freshman year. And now, almost four years later, I’m writing a goodbye post? And there are people who aren’t my parents who will read it? That’s bizarre to me (and probably even more bizarre to my 18-year-old self).

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.

I wish.

10 Questions With Ludacris [VIDEO]

When I first heard that hip-hop star Ludacris would be performing at Movin’ On this year, I jumped at the chance to interview him. After many emails, a lot of patience, and just a little bit of luck, Luda finally agreed to let me as him a few questions. Check out the video after the jump to find out more about his salary, his driving habits, and his past experience as a Blockbuster Video employee.
