Residence Hall Restrictions Announced For State Patty’s Weekend

In Penn State’s annual efforts to discourage the beloved fake holiday that is the weekend between THON and Spring Break State Patty’s, Penn State Residence Life has once again announced restrictions on overnight guests for those living in the dorms.

Referring to State Patty’s simply as “the weekend following THON,” the announcement states that the university is doing this to discourage the negative behaviors associated with this weekend.

Regular dorms will be allowed to have one overnight guest, while supplemental rooms can have up to two. Like most residence life policies, it’s unclear how this rule is going to be enforced.

According to the statement, any student found to have more than the allotted number of visitors will be documented with a guest violation and will have to meet with their building coordinator for conduct violation — and their guests will have to find a new home.

What now? If all of your pals are coming to stay in your East dorm this weekend, you should probably steer clear of your RA, and try not to be overly loud or obnoxious.
