Livestrong’s Camp Kesem A Possibility for Penn State?

With $12.37 million dollars raised for cancer research this year alone, there’s no denying that Penn State is a force to be reckoned with in the battle against cancer. Now, we have the chance to do even more. Penn State is amongst six schools nominated by the Livestrong Foundation to host Camp Kesem.

Camp Kesem serves as a summertime haven for children whose families have been directly affected by cancer. Currently, 1,200 children benefit from the camp at over 40 locations. Now, Penn State has the chance to be one of them. According to the Livestrong website, “through the 2013 Community Impact Project the Livestrong Foundation will fund the replication of this program at twelve universities with seed funding of $10,000 per campus to begin the program.” From there, it would be solely up to Penn State students to organize and carryout the camp.

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.
