7 Tell-Tale Signs of Fall in State College
Onward State

With Daylight Saving Time ending on Sunday, fall is surely upon us! Pumpkin carving, leaves falling, and a chill in the air were good hints too. How many of these signs of fall have you noticed in State College?

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.


It all started with the Pumpkin Spice Latte... Now we have Pumpkin Spice milk, Pumpkin Spice gum, Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, Pumpkin Spice vodka, Pumpkin Spice yogurt, Pumpkin Spice bagels, Pumpkin Spice chocolate, Pumpkin Spice cream cheese... Please, someone, come up with a new spice!

5. Falling leaves

And the child in you will never stop wanting to jump into the piles.

6. The Instagram captions

If someone you follow is in a relationship, they're definitely going to be breaking out their cheesiest fall themed captions so have your likes ready!

7. Midterm Season

While October and November means Halloween and Thanksgiving, it also means lots of exams, papers, and projects... Yay

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
