In a powerful documentary titled “The Truth 365,” pediatric cancer patients are given a voice in social media to describe the struggles of a cancer-fighting childhood.
Friday and Saturday, Penn State’s very own Songwriter’s Club (SWC) put on an incredible two-night show with 100% of the proceeds going towards THON! For just $5, the audience could see some of the most talented musicians Penn State has to offer play in an intimate setting.
With over 40,000 students at Penn State, when class lets out. campus suddenly gets crowded…and fast. For your sake (and the sake of others), keep these dos and don’ts in mind while you’re strolling around on this beautiful campus at peak crowd times.
“Here’s the mail, it never fails. It makes me wanna wag my tail. When it comes I want to wail—MAIL!”
Yes, we did just quote “Blue’s Clues”. It may be a silly song from the past, but it’s exactly how most of the dancers feel when Mail Call comes around THON weekend.
As any young child would do, many of us used to laugh and make fun of our grandparents when they would tell us that their walk to school was uphill both ways. How could that even be possible?
Well, I’m sure most of you have already kicked yourselves for thinking that. When it comes to Penn State’s campus there is no such thing as “flat ground”. Walking to and from class around Happy Valley is indeed uphill both ways and can become quite of a pain in the winter months.
Each semester, Penn State welcomes a new set of transfer students to our campus. Whether they’ve transferred from a commonwealth campus, or an entirely different school, this relived freshmen year experience has its pros and cons.

Goo Goo Cluster; sounds like a cereal for babies, right? What about Happy Happy Joy Joy… or some Arboretum Breeze? Are those air fresheners?
Students here wear their Penn State apparel every day – like it’s a uniform. Be honest: we know you own enough PSU-related clothing to complete an entire wardrobe. (Sweats? Yoga pants? Socks? Headbands? Jewelery?)
And then… there are those students who wear clothes from other colleges and

Ye Olde State College Diner may be famous for grilled stickies, but when it comes to tradition, theirs is rooted good food and philanthropy.
The dinner table at Thanksgiving is always a special time for families to share a meal and memories of the past year- or in my case, a chance for embarrassing stories and awkward topics to be discussed.
It’s that time of year again! The weather is getting chilly, the holiday season is picking up speed and what better way to celebrate the start of the season than with local comfort foods and Thanksgiving inspired dishes?
