For better or worse, my time in Happy Valley has been strange, unexpected, and irreplaceable.
Now we all know the familiar words “The stately Nittany Lion, the symbol of our best!” That being the case, I’d easily argue that the terrible line on graduation weekend leading to a photo op with “the symbol of our best” plays host to some of the best quotes on campus. And the worst sunburns.
Welcome freshmen! I see you’ve survived your first month here as a Penn State student. By now you’ve undoubtedly Instagrammed a photo of Old Main, argued or watched someone argue with the Willard Preacher, eaten a West cookie and told 13 different people the same uninteresting story about just how drunk you were last weekend and how much you can’t even (Don’t worry, we’ve noticed your progress). Staples of your first month in Happy Valley, no doubt.
