Air Force ROTC War Games in Stone Valley

The ratatat of a 50 Caliber Machine Gun firing blanks kept campers awake last weekend as cadets from our Air Force ROTC unit deployed to Penn State's camp grounds in Stone Valley on a field training exercise (FTX). Cadets were able to test their leadership skills and their air power battle knowledge in order to out-maneuver enemy forces led by senior cadets and active duty Air Force officers.

Read on for the full scoop on the Air Force ROTC's field training exercises.

PSU Within 300 Votes to Premiere Film

The new Jonah Hill and Russell Brand flick, "Get Him to the Greek", has a definite chance at premiering here at Penn State. The film is holding a contest to see which Big Ten school will get the honor of having the stars of the movie show up and premiere their work for free. We are currently in second place, but a late surge has put us in striking distance of Illinois.

Remember, the contest ends on April 5th, and the movie will be screened the week of April 18. After the jump, click the widget to demand it and get the film to PSU.

Penn State Alum Wins Bronze in Vancouver

Penn State graduate Allison Baver just won the Bronze medal in the 3000m Short Track Relay in Vancouver. The medal was awarded after a controversial disqualification of the winning Korean team. The Americans were in a distant fourth, but after it was determined the Koreans made illegal contact with the Chinese team, the Americans were bumped up to a third place finish.

Congrats Allison!  Maybe you'll be Grand Marshall of next year's Homecoming celebration?

THON's Total Revealed

THON 2010…Coverage Onward State Style

This weekend, I spent many hours experiencing something amazing. I covered what I believe is one of the greatest collegiate endeavors ever attempted. THON 2010.

During my coverage time with Onward State, I worked with great people and got to see what goes on behind the scenes and up close what THON accomplishes.

THON doesn't just start on Friday and end on Sunday, THON starts almost a year in advance, and so did Onward State's coverage. We started covering many stories related to THON and how THON operates, we contacted THON PR and talked with many THON representatives to makes sure you would receive the best THON coverage we could offer.

For more info on how we were able to cover the behemoth that is THON (and for 116 pictures!), read the full story.
