1. Football!!!

Unless you live under a rock, you're probably well aware that it's football season and our Nittany Lions have had quite a year so far! I guess there are other fall sports, but nothing feels more like fall to me than celebrating in Beaver Stadium with 107,000 of the world's greatest fans!

2. Changing wardrobes

With the changing weather comes a changing wardrobe for many Penn Staters. Flip flops are swapped out for UGGs, shorts and dresses are traded for leggings, and the North Faces come out in full force.

3. Plague Season

If you're not sniffling or coughing yet, you must be on some strong vitamins or something because the Campus Plague is almost impossible to avoid this time of year.

4. PUMPKIN SPICE
