THAW Festival Offers Fun Alternative to State Patty’s Day


If you’re considering avoiding the bars this State Patty’s Weekend, you now have an entertaining new alternative. Penn State’s first ever THAW Festival, inspired by the college film festival, kicks off Feb. 23 at the State Theatre with a documentary at 3:30 p.m. There’s something for everyone at THAW Festival, from films and concerts to magicians and comedians.


Valley View: “Avenue Q”


Remember back in the day, when we used to learn from puppets? If you’re nostalgic for those fuzzy friends or in need of a few life lessons, look no further than Penn State’s production of “Avenue Q.”


#WCW: Girl Code’s Carly Aquilino


If you asked people to name some celebrities who never fail to make them laugh, names like Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell, Adam Sandler and Seth Rogen may come up. But, on this #WomanCrushWednesday, Valley wants to focus on a comedian relatively new to the celebrity scene and who is no funny man at all.

I was a little disappointed with the casting of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, but I figured I had to see the movie after all the hype surrounding it.
