Penn State Student Flexes On-Campus Quarantine Meals Via TikTok

Now that we’re one week into a socially distant semester, Penn State has made sure to keep up with randomly testing students, faculty, and staff for coronavirus. For those who have tested positive, that means quarantining on campus.

College students in similar positions around the country have taken to TikTok to show off how their schools are taking care of them during their isolation periods, with some universities working a little harder than others (we’re looking at you, NYU). However, according to Penn State freshman Olivia Sanders, a quarantine at University Park is turning out to be a pretty sweet deal.

As seen in her TikTok, Sanders — who made it clear she was not in the “freshman twerk circle — was treated to a care package from Penn State, which includes meals that look a lot better than what some other students may be cooking up at their off-campus apartments.

The box contained a reusable Starbucks cup, two tea packets, a package of Goldfish, pretzels, crackers, a granola bar, a bottle of water, popcorn, a Nutrigrain bar, disposable wipes, and a few Penn State-themed mints.

Sanders also showcased her dinner, which was dropped off at her door by Penn State. She received bottles of water, ginger ale, and Brisk iced tea to drink. For her actual meal, she had a side salad with ranch, Goldfish, and a cup of grapes.

Her main course consisted of a chicken breast, quinoa, and kale, which was surely the envy of NYU students everywhere (myself, too). For dessert, she was treated to two lemon bars.

While testing positive for the coronavirus and having to quarantine in your prison-like Eastview Terrace dorm room for two weeks may not be ideal, it certainly could be worse. At least Penn State is upping its game when it comes to taking care of students.
