The Soundtrack To Your Life

Don’t you wish you had a soundtrack for your life? A never-ending string of songs fitting your mood/activity exactly? Yes, you could make a customized playlist by hand, but that takes a ton of time that your busy schedule can’t afford.

THON provides countless ways you can encourage a child with cancer, whether it be through dancing with them or squirting water guns at each other. Some students went all out and donated a piece of themselves to these children (literally), by donating their hair to Wigs for Kids.

Oh, the Holiday season.

The time when, after everyone is done freaking out about finals, students pack up and head home for a well deserved break. While some have to drive (or fly) for hours on end, a select group of students only have to endure about a 10-minute commute home.

“Going green” seems to be a growing trend in the college community. I keep seeing articles about the student government pushing for more action to be taken to make Penn State a more sustainable university, and signs in the residence halls encouraging students to recycle in the proper way.

It’s that time of the year again, hooray! It seems as though December has been declared the unofficial holiday month, judging from the decorations downtown and the Christmas party invites starting promptly on Dec. 1st.
