Penn State Welcomes Kanye West

Penn State Welcomes Kanye West

As many of you may already know, Penn State’s Bryce Jordan Center has hosted a variety of distinguished musical artists throughout the years. These musical performances have ranged from Tiesto and Avicci, electro-house music sensations, to rock legend Bon Jovi and hiphop superstar, Kendrick Lamar.

There was a lot of delight throughout Happy Valley in the beginning of September, when it was announced another renowned musical act would be taking the stage at Bryce Jordan Center. On September 6th, 2013, Jay-Z confirmed the dates for his upcoming “Magna Carter World Tour,” and luckily for Penn State students, he decided to perform State College, Penn. on Jan. 31. If you didn’t stop by the Hub the day tickets went on sale, or see complaints on your Twitter feed from angry peers, then you missed a massive line of students waiting for hours on end to purchase tickets. As January flies by and the date gets closer, excitement is in the air for dedicated Jay-Z fans.

Over winter break, even more exciting news was announced. On Jan. 7, Kanye West, a prominent hip-hop star, known for being a skillful songwriter and record producer, an entrepreneur, husband to Kim Kardashian and the man who interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech in 2009, announced the dates for his 2014 Yeezus tour.

Kanye will bring his Yeezus tour to State College on Thursday, Feb. 13,  not too long after Jay-Z takes the stage. Tickets for Kanye’s performance went on sale on Jan. 9, however, tickets are still being sold on Ticketmaster and various ticket websites. Penn State students will receive a student discount when purchasing tickets ($20 off floor access and $10 off reserved seating).

The Kanye West concert is not to be missed. Allie Rothstein, a sister of Alpha Sigma Alpha and a Kanye West enthusiast,says, “Kanye West is an unbelievable performer. You will definitely regret it if you don’t purchase a ticket to his concert!”

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
