From Pawnee to State College: Nick Offerman to Kick Off SPA LateNight


State College, be prepared. Ron F—ing Swanson is coming to town.

Comedian Nick Offerman, well-mustached star of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” (and professional woodworker), will kick off a semester of SPA events performing in Eisenhower Auditorium on September 6th at 10 p.m. Besides playing everyone’s favorite parks and recreation director, he has also appeared in solid supporting roles in movies like 21 Jump Street and indie dramas like Smashed and The Kings of Summer

Offerman’s stand-up show, titled “American Ham”,  will feature a veritable smorgasbord of cautionary tales, tunes, and tips for prosperity (with minor nudity).”

According to the Facebook event, free student tickets are available with valid PSU University Park Student ID beginning August 29th at the HUB Ticket Desk and all CPA Ticketing Locations.

Get excited.

Senior Column: The Man Behind the Twitter

Before I visited Penn State, I had never heard of the Nittany Lions, Joe Paterno, Happy Valley, or State College. I was the quintessential out-of-stater. One tour around campus, and I realized that this was a place that I wanted to be. I soon found that, like State College’s highly unpredictable climate, Penn State, even with all its traditions, is a place of constant change.
