While many Penn Staters will be travelling to exotic beaches and foreign countries for a week come Friday, a few students have chosen to take the non-traditional route for Spring Break 2012. Not to say that there is anything wrong with taking a week off to enjoy yourself and participate in potentially regrettable activities for seven straight days, but some students have decided to make a difference in the lives of others next week.
Each year, hundreds of organizations raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Four Diamonds Fund. Organizing all of the money from these efforts would not be possible without 25 Finance captains, 150 committee members, and overall Vicki Marone.
You might know Shane McGregor as #2 on the football field, but this weekend, he will be showing off his skills in a different venue. Nope, I’m not talking about his self-proclaimed talent of “throwing things,” I’m talking about dancing. Tomorrow, the senior quarterback and his renowned flowing blonde locks will be hitting the dance floor to represent Parmi Nous in THON 2012.

To avoid the constant reminder that I will not be being wined and dined on Valentine's Day, I think it's always best to stay away from all restaurants, ice cream shops, and any other date destinations. Because of this decision, along with the fact that, to single people, Valentine's Day is better known as "Comfort Food Day," I have put together a little shopping list of all the foods you will need to survive this Valentine's Day from the comfort of your couch.
Hundreds of students took to Facebook and Twitter last week in an attempt to raise money for THON. This was the second such social media campaign in the last month, the first being the #CyberCanning movement which attempted to make up for the cancelled third canning weekend in January.
