The LION 90.7 FM To Highlight Penn State’s Many Organizations At Involvement Fair Weeklong

While many students will begin their first week of classes guzzling drinks on consecutive nights, Penn State’s student radio station will have a weeklong of its own.

Monday through Thursday from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., The LION 90.7 FM will broadcast outside the involvement fair at Alumni Hall. It’s all in an effort to bring awareness to the diverse selection of student activities at Penn State, according to The LION’s president and general manager Tyler Ball.

“We wanted to be at the involvement fair, but we felt that like as the student radio station we always feel like it’s our duty to help other orgs out,” Ball said. “There’s so many orgs at Penn State that we figured as a freshman, even as a sophomore, maybe even transfer students, they don’t really know what’s fun or what’s a good option to do.”

The LION will play host to representatives from many of the organizations on campus. While on the air, the groups will have their chance to present themselves, and entice new members.

“I’ve heard that Penn State has about 900 organizations,” he said. “We have 64 spots available, so we’re hoping to showcase 50 organizations.”

Larger organizations like THON often attract much of the attention at involvement fairs. Ball and The LION are using their extensive airtime to show off those that may often get overlooked, or simply overshadowed.

“We have THON and Homecoming, but we also have some smaller special interests orgs, things you may not know about,” he said. “It’s a really wide range, the whole idea is to get the names out there.”

It’s been an exciting past few months for The LION, which recently opened its new headquarters and studio inside the renovated HUB.

If you’re a representative from an interested club, The LION is still looking for student groups to fill the open time slots. You can email them at [email protected].
