Five Ways To Get Free Things During Syllabus Week

After spending money on textbooks, new room décor, and all other incidental PSU expenses, budgets are running pretty low. Have no fear though, Syllabus Week offers free options for all students to enjoy. Here are five places that you can go this week to snag some entertainment and items at no cost.

1. Involvement Fair

On Monday through Thursday, the Involvement Fair will take place in the HUB. Get ready for pens, magnets, cups, and more from hundreds of different student organizations on campus. Each day boasts a different selection of organizations for you to either join or at least get some pretty cool free stuff from.

2. Residence Hall Meetings

Just about all students living on campus will have floor meetings this week. In order to get students to attend, many of the RAs promise free food and drinks to any that attend the brief meeting, because who could say no to that?

3. Blue & White Society Bash

On Thursday from 5-7 p.m., the Blue & White Society will host its annual bash, open to all students. Free t-shirts are available for those who sign up to be a part of the club, but free food is available to all.

4. LION Bash

Also on Thursday is the LION Bash located in Downtown State College. The event is set to boast music, food, face painting, and a dunk tank.

5. Sporting Events

Many of the sporting events on campus come at no charge to students, and they’re great places to often get your fill of free t-shirts and pom-poms. Sporting events this weekend include season and home-openers for women’s volleyball and men’s soccer, and the women’s soccer team will play its third and fourth games of the year too.

Whatever you choose to do this week, make sure to take advantage of the many free options that Penn State has to offer.

The theme of the 31st year of events honoring MLK is Keep Moving Forward, and organizers encourage students to get involved by using the hashtag #takethenextstep to promote the campaign on social media.
