We Are...Thankful For You, Penn State

Penn State offers a lot to its students, but here are five things all Penn State students are thankful for.

We Are...Thankful For You, Penn State
"Happy Valley Photos"

With Thanksgiving season ending, I had the time to reflect what I'm most thankful for. Every other year I say how I'm thankful for my family, health, pets, etc. This year I'm still thankful for those, but I've decided to reflect on the things that I, and many other Penn State students, are thankful for:

1. Penn State in general

As an Animal Science major, I'm thankful for the opportunity to attend one of the largest agriculture schools in the nation. Being a Penn State student means that I will not only have classes that prepare me for a career in agriculture, but it also gives me the biggest alumni network and all of its associations, so my chances of getting hired by a Penn State grad are pretty high. Since Penn State has a big agricultural college, it also allows students to get involved in clubs like the Dairy Science Club, and participate in the events they put on , like Meet A Cow Day.

2. Penn State Football

In just this season we went from being an unranked team, to being ranked number 7. Oh yeah, we also beat Ohio State... sorry I mean THE Ohio State. Need I say more?

3. The food downtown

The food downtown is a necessity in all Penn Stater's diets. Whether you're craving Pokey Sticks or a burger from Baby's, every kind of cuisine that you would possibly want can be found downtown, plus it's cheap!

4. Berkey Creamery

I'm a huge ice cream fan, so being able to get delicious ice cream practically 24/7 for sure makes this a huge thing that I'm thankful for.

5. The friends

Finally, I'm thankful for the friends that I've made while attending Penn State. I'm at a school that has over 40,000 students during any given year and I'm somehow able to make friends that have the same background I do, and some that don't. Finding this diversity at Penn State has allowed me to grow as a person.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
