Its no secret. State College turns into something of a ghost-town on canning weekends. The tumble weed is poised to roll through any minute.
While a good portion of us are rolling out on a noble mission to stand on the side of city streets and collect money for THON, some of us will be hanging back. Maybe you have an exam to study for, maybe you have a paper to write, or maybe you just aren’t involved in an organization that’s kick ass enough to go canning. Regardless, if you have to stick around SC this weekend, we thought we’d toss you a few ideas of things to do. Most of them are going on at everyone’s favorite central campus location: the good old Hub Robeson center.
Creative Crafts -Make Your Own Halloween Treat Jar: Hub Ground Floor- 10/19/12-10/20/12 9:00pm
-I’ve never participated in ‘Creative Crafts’ at the HUB, but a friend of mine used to run it and it always looked like they were having a damn good time. Plus, free Treat jar=Ballin
Total Recall: Hub Auditorium 10/19/12-10/20/12 7:00pm and 11:55pm
-Not sure if this is the old one or the new one. Who cares? Shit’s free.
Pokemon Tournament: HUB 1st floor 10/19/12 10:00pm

SWING DANCE: Heritage Hall 10/19/12 10:00pm
-Hosted by PSU’s Swing Dancing Club! If I had any coordination in my body I’d actually probably check this out.
Penn State Womens Soccer V.S. Michigan: Jeffrey Field 10/19/12 7:00pm
-Obviously women’s basketball is the only thing that compares to seeing Bill O’Brien and the Nittany Lions tearing it up. But our women’s soccer team is actually awesome, they gave OSU an ass-whooping earlier this year.

If none of this floats your boat, there is always the obvious.. Stay home and study for the onslaught of mid-terms you have coming up, or take advantage of the lack of bar lines.
