As a Penn State student, youâ€™ve probably passed the farmerâ€™s market, either on your way to class or while shopping downtown. You probably didnâ€™t think twice about it, shrugging it off as just a place to buy fresh fruit and veggies.
When I heard that Penn State was getting a Jamba Juice in the HUB I honestly could not believe it. Could it be? The smoothie place that Iâ€™ve only been able to treat myself to while in New York could really be coming here? In our HUB? But itâ€™s true; weâ€™ve been blessed with another great food chain on campus.
Sweating, perspiring, dripping, whatever you call it, you hate it, it’s horrible. Whether youâ€™re walking from Willard to Thomas, dancing in a packed frat or bar, or sitting in a stuffy classroom, youâ€™re probably sweating everywhere. It is obvious that no amount of deodorant or perfume can disguise your sweaty body parts, but donâ€™t worry.
Last week at the annual “Be A Part From the Start,”, Penn State’s Homecoming Executive Committee made the highly anticipated announcement that Lara Spencer, co-anchor of “Good Morning America,” was selected as the 2014 Homecoming Grand Marshal.
Change how you see chicken with our Spiced Chicken Power Bowl. Each serving is a complete meal, packed with 35 grams of protein from whole grains and lean meat. Quinoa, one of the main ingredients, is a go-to power food. While itâ€™s often labeled as a grain itâ€™s actually a seed, made up of all 8 essential amino acids. In college-speak this means you can count on quinoa as a complete source of proteinâ€” itâ€™s got your back.
College is a stressful time for everybody, but for some students, itâ€™s so stressful they sadly never make it home. Suicide on college campuses is a taboo topic thatâ€™s rarely spoken about. It seems like there are only one or two resources to help students.
If youâ€™re still googling â€˜LionMenusâ€™ when you get a craving for Wings Over that just canâ€™t wait, youâ€™re going to want to keep reading. Contrary to what you might think, Happy Valleyâ€™s favorite online food delivery service, OrderUp, didnâ€™t buy-out our beloved LionMenus.
From dorm rooms to apartments, many of us have become accustomed to the small closet life. Sure we all probably have high hopes of having a roomy walk-in closet one-day, but for now we must make use of what we have. Having a small closet means maximizing every inch of space. Organization is a key factor in successful space maximization.
Ever since we were little the beginning of school was an exciting time. Now that you attend Penn State, exciting is an understatement. There is nothing like stepping onto Penn Stateâ€™s campus for the first time in the fall. Stepping into your first class, howeverâ€¦ thatâ€™s another story. To get you started, Valley has provided some tips to help adapt to the new semester.
We’re insta-back to Penn State for another soon-to-be insta-amazing year, so you know what’s coming and you’re more than likely a contributor. Get ready to throw your dying iPhone in a fitted rage at the nearest wall for freezing up, because your Instagram feed is about to actually burst into flames.
Itâ€™s no secret that all upperclassmen are in denial about not being freshmen anymore. Once they start their sophomore year and they see the next batch of twerps move into East wearing their lanyards and brand new Penn State Football shirts, they start to realize that the many perks that came with the freshman life are now gone.
Itâ€™s trueâ€”Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are back together, but is Jelena headed for another split? A few weeks after reuniting, Justin broke Selenaâ€™s heart by hanging out with his maybe ex-girlfriend Chantel Jeffries.
Ever seen the movie, 500 days of summer? Well, having a summer fling is a relationship that is similar to this movie with some cheesy one liners, pointless emotional fights and a whole lot of summer lovinâ€™. Instead of Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the main lovers, replace them with you and your partner.
To all my ladies (and any willing gentlemen) out there, itâ€™s time to address the way you dress. Whether youâ€™re rolling out of bed just in time for class or waking up at the crack of dawn to primp and prep, the outfit you choose in the morning can make or break you later on (Yes, itâ€™s that serious).
Freshman year was weird.
It was fun, challenging, made me want to drop out and move to California and made me question why I couldnâ€™t skip high school and come straight to State. Itâ€™s mind blowing to think itâ€™s over and Iâ€™m moving on to sophomore year.
Dear graduating seniors,
Congratulations! You did it. You successfully balanced your schoolwork, social life and your various extracurricular activities for the last four years. As sad as it is to say it, your time in Happy Valley is almost over.
Breaking News: you’re old. Seriously, are you really planning out your schedule for next semester? Who even does that? I guess your every waking moment is just one step closer to graduation.
Going to college comes with tons of awesome experiences: your first football game, your 21st birthday bar crawl, killer internships and (for Penn Staters) THON. But with the mad perks college gives you, come the cons along with it. The dreaded right of passage we all experience? The all-nighter.
Admitting you have a crush may sound juvenile when you say it out loud (obviously boys donâ€™t have cooties), but thereâ€™s no harm in a little window shopping every once in awhile. Itâ€™s innocent fun and makes you feel like a kid again, which is a nice refresher when hooking up is the norm nowadays.
Major bashing. Itâ€™s something weâ€™ve all been guilty of, and no doubt something weâ€™ve all found ourselves at the butt of. But, itâ€™s time to set the record straight. â€œOh, so youâ€™re planning on being homeless after you graduate?â€
