Battle of the Cut Out Letters

Looking up at the stands from the floor, the cut out letters are EVERYWHERE. Org names, Greek letters, sports teams, Commonwealth campuses — everybody is represented. Sadly, all signs were not created equally. So, who wore it best and who came up short?

I’ll start with who I assume is cross country. While I totally respect your sport, your sign came up short. “XC” written in Sharpie is just not going to cut it. Especially on a poster board! Not durable, my friends. I give you until midnight before it disintegrates completely.

I can assure you, however, that Delta Zeta’s letters will hold up. Why? Because they made them out of wood! What?! That’s dedication. I’m very impressed, I just hope nobody gets a splinter.

Still, one group in the special interest org section has DZ beat. Could it be the power house that is Atlas? Or my own org, Apollo? While both made very respectable showings, it was Boulevard who won it in the end. For anybody who hasn’t seen their letters, look for the green “BLVD.” Not only are they an eye catching bright green, they also light up.

Kudos on the mixed media, Boulevard!

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State–costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.
