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.

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."


I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
