The 55 days of Café are almost into single digits, and reality is setting in—seniors are graduating. How are seniors supposed to cope with the loss of the four greatest years in the happiest of Valleys?
The graduation gowns are colored Penn State blue. There are many colors that work with this shade of Navy. However, the event is celebratory and marks a fresh start, so most people will want to choose light-colored dresses.
The sun is finally starting to show its rays, and Penn State students will be here to soak up every last one of them. The time between the freezing winter and sweltering summer doesn’t last nearly as long as a normal springtime. Soon enough, we’ll be looking for places to take a dip. Luckily, there are various paces to go swimming in the State College area.
Amp up your typical lunchtime sandwich with a healthy and tasty veggie wrap. It’s easy to make and leaves you feeling full but not overstuffed. I used six different toppings that I enjoy but you can swap out or add in items as you please.
Finding the perfect internship to boost your resume and make yourself more marketable for the impeding senior year job search seems like a must. As Penn State students, we are trained to apply for internships each summer in order to land a dream job right out of college.

All Penn State students have an impressive array of hoodies, tees and sweatpants displaying their Nittany Lion pride. Because we attend such an amazing school, showing our spirit for it is a given. However, grungy sweats inevitably bring your outfit down and make you feel and look sloppy.

Even though the State College streets are icy and show absolutely no evidence of an approaching spring season, new fashion trends are making their way through. It’s time to put away the dreary black totes. Colorful and playful bags ruled the Spring/Summer 2014 runways during fashion week.
The beginning of each semester eases us back into classes by allowing a somewhat slow-paced first week. Because very little homework is due and full attention isn’t necessarily expected in classes, some students take the opportunity to go out every single night of the week.
New Years Eve is a big night for everyone. There is a ridiculous amount of planning that goes into picking the venue, which group of friends to go with, and who that lucky person receiving your 12 a.m. kiss will be. New Year’s Eve is an overrated, over-planned, and over-hyped night when it comes down to it.
Studying abroad is one the most life-changing opportunities you will receive during your college career. Due to the massive amount of preparations, the months leading up to your departure are stressful.
