Submit Your Best Balcony View

Finding an apartment or house in Happy Valley is one of everyone’s most dreaded activities, right behind job/internship hunting and scheduling classes (screw you eLion). There is a slew of questions you need to ask yourself: How much do I want to pay? Where do I want to be located? How many roommates do I want? The list goes on and on.

But what is one thing that never fails to sweeten the allure of an apartment you know you are paying way too much money for? The perfect balcony. Balconies can be the hot spot for many things, from admiring the beauty of State College, to shouting at passersby on Beaver Ave.

Between the hundreds of apartments around State College, we know there are some prime balconies to be had, and we want to know about them and possibly come by to take photos of the view. Simply fill out the form below (or find it here) and tell us about a balcony that you think is the best of the best, and you (or your friends) might just be featured on Onward State!

Between bringing music acts, comedians, or countless other forms of entertainment, everyone at Penn State has probably taken advantage of one of SPA’s free programs.
