The Best Late Night Bites

By

By now, may have read the “Penn State Eats Here” article in our Fall 2014 print issue. While the restaurants downtown definitely deserve their own bucket list – what about the late night eateries? So let’s just be honest right from the start and admit that our late night eating habits are still in full swing (for most of us anyway).

How to Tailgate (The Right Way)

By

As if you didn’t already know, tailgates are one of the highlights of every football season—scratch that, every fall semester. What’s better than hauling your favorite party dips and bevvies up to the stadium to consume with your friends and family and pump yourself up for yet another great game?

Kung Fu Tea

By

Any time something new pops up in our rather small Happy Valley, we can’t help but be some of the first to check it out. This past week, we ventured near the Palmerton—under it, actually—to enjoy some bubble tea.
If you haven’t heard about bubble tea, get your head in the game. State College is not new to this drink trend—Tea-Time on McAllister Alley is a popular spot for many students—so naturally another spot is always welcome.

Is summer really gone? Well to us, we’re just happy we can soak up the last rays with our favorite group of college kids in these next few weeks.

If we’re laying our honesty out on the table now, some of us will admit that the Super Bowl is not of extreme interest. What is of interest, however, is walking into a friend’s apartment only to find a plethora of snacks and pizza. Suddenly watching the game is a pretty good idea.

How to Keep Yourself Alive During Finals Week

By

So you’ve just barely made it through the grueling 15 weeks of the semester and now you’re coming up against the most stressful part of it all—finals. It happens every semester—the memory of staying up until late morning studying for tests you’re fairly certain may kill you and living on the free late-night meals the dining commons offers doesn’t exactly exude positivity, but we all go through it.

Black Friday: The Experience

Black Friday: The Experience

The only other time I’ve ever gone Black Friday shopping was for a family my mother and I took under our wing from her Adopt-a-Family Foundation, and we had a mission—find as many clothes as possible and if we had time, a few awesome toys as well.

Dinner for Winners

Dinner for Winners

There aren’t many luxuries in the world quite like a home-cooked dinner after a long, busy day. The vision of a hot, steaming plate is stuck in our memories forever, but what shouldn’t be is the feeling of fatigue, inability to move or just overall “I shouldn’t have eaten that” syndrome that follows a not-so-good final meal of the day.

Breakfast for Success

Breakfast for Success

From elementary school on, we’ve heard repeatedly that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet, when we got home and put on the TV, we saw cereal and Pop Tart commercials that preached its nutritional value when the back of the box reveals the reality.

Getting Outside the Bubble

Between the football games, weekly org meetings, classes and the convenience of having (almost) everything you need downtown, it can be difficult to notice that there’s an entire county around you, let alone another side of State College.
