15 Of My Biggest Pet Peeves About Penn State

Just like on every campus, some college kids have no manners, no common sense, and no common courtesy.


I love Penn State, but oh my lord, there are some infuriating things here. Just like on every campus, some college kids have no manners, no common sense, and no common courtesy.

Here are fifteen of the most relatable annoyances on campus:

1. The bikes

They are a menace to all students. Penn State is NOT a bike friendly place.

2. People taking up an entire table in the HUB... Rude

So annoying when you're on the prowl for a seat and spot those nice circle table and then see theres ONE person sitting there taking up the whole spot.

3. Needing Lion Tutors to pass intro level course!

...Math 21, I'm talking about you....I would have FAILED simple algebra. UGH.

4. Getting the plague every year

This place is a cesspool of germs, especially in the dorms.

5. People who take your unassigned assigned seat in class

I get incredibly offended, and it's simply an attack when someone does this.

6. Terrible State College drivers

You haven't lived in State College if you haven't had any close calls on the one way streets.

7. People who play their music extremely loud on headphones in the lib

Yes sir, while I'm trying to teach myself an entire semester of notes I definitely want to hear the terrifying music you are listening to.

8. Nothing edible to eat in dining halls on weekends

It's either frozen meals or laxative heavy buffet meals. UGH.

9. When the white loop randomly decides to stop

I love when you are in a race to class and the whoop suddenly just decides to stop for 13 minutes at one stop for reasons which we don't understand!

10. Construction on every corner

It is impossible to have a semester without one building being torn down and another one put up.

11. Chain smokers

My LEAST favorite thing of all time. This is a smoke-free campus and yet I walk out of the HUB or Lib every day and see a posse of people posted up chain smoking.

12. People who vape in your face

I just love getting a cloud of mango vape thrown into my nose.

13. Slow walkers

C'mon we all have 8,000 places to be. There is NO time to be lolly gagging around.

14. The squirrels

And last but not least— The SQUIRRELS! They are creepy little creatures with no chill who will be six inches from you and just stare into your soul.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
