Onward State Wishes You an Enjoyable Summer

Time seems to stand still during State College summers. Anyone who has spent the warmer months in Happy Valley can attest to the vacuous nature of the town, with few students and a relatively uninhabited campus.

Like most students, the majority of our staff will be out of the area pursuing various internships, spending a copious amount of time playing video games, and having awkward run-ins with old high school acquaintances. Onward Staters are real people too, and we will be operating under a less rigorous publishing schedule until classes begin again in the fall.

Don’t worry — some of us will remain in State College, so be sure to keep checking the site daily and following us on @OnwardState for pictures of the beautiful campus foliage that will make you long for Arts Fest and wish summer break was over next week. If news breaks, you’ll be able to find it here. (But let’s hope this summer isn’t quite as newsworthy as the last one, okay?)

Everyone at Onward State would like to wish you an enjoyable summer break and thank you for your continued readership over the last 9 months (And 4 and a half years, for that matter). We look forward to bringing you all the great news and minutiae that make Penn State so very special again in 2013-2014 and beyond.
