What To Do This Weekend If You’re Not Canning

For the next few days, Penn Staters will gather outside storefronts near and wide with cans to collect money for THON for the last time. The first and final canning weekend of the year has arrived, and State College will seem a bit emptier than usual this weekend.

For those of us staying local this weekend, there are still some fun things to do. We’ve compiled a list of some events taking place over the next couple of days right here in Happy Valley:

Penn State Field Hockey vs. Northwestern

The Penn State field hockey team will host Northwestern at 5 p.m. at the Field Hockey Complex on Friday, September 22.
