Did you even visit Penn State if you haven't eaten any of these?

10 Foods Every Person Needs To Try At Penn State

Penn State is known for a lot more than just its football team. Downtown comes with a long strip of a variety of food places that are basically the foundation of Penn Staters. If you go to school here or even if you're just visiting, you need to try these foods or else you are not truly experiencing the true Penn State experience:

1. Pokey Stix

It may just look like normal cheese sticks, but to us Penn Staters, it is cheesy heaven. They are the biggest icon food at Penn State and are an absolute must!

2. Chicken basket

If you have ever been to a football game then you know that these are a necessity. The chicken and fries just taste better in the stadium, and no one can tell you otherwise.

3. Baby's milkshakes

This small old '50s diner is more than meets the eye. Their shakes are to die for and dare I say may be even better than creamery milkshakes!

4. The Field milkshakes....and burgers....and everything there 

Absolutely anything you get at The Field will be fantastic. Creamery styled, fancy milkshakes? They have it. A ginormous pretzel? They have it. The best burger in the world? They got it.

5. Creamery ice cream

This is clearly an obvious, but no one will truly understand the greatness of Penn State ice cream until it dances all around their tastebuds!

6. Sticky buns

Even though The Diner is closed, the buns still live on and for a good reason. The sticky buns are by far some of the best ever made--especially when they are warmed up with some vanilla Creamery ice cream on top!

7. Pizza cone

What could be better than pizza in the shape of a cone? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

8. Are U Hungry Ecstasy Fries

This goes out to all my bacon, cheddar, ranch loving people. All of that on top of waffle fries basically screams the best thing my mouth could ever handle.

9. Canyon Pizza

Even though it is an ongoing joke about having Canyon when you are sober. you should still stop by this iconic spot and grab a slice and get a pepperoni roll. You won't regret...unless you're sober.

10. College Pizza

In all honesty, probably one of the best pizzas, even when you're sober! It is still on the same level as Canyon but definitely more tolerable and delicious!

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
