10 Things To Put On Your Penn State Bucket List

Four years may seem like a long time, but it's hard to accomplish everything that Penn State has to offer in that short amount of time. However, having a bucket list can help you cross off things from the second you arrive on campus!

1. Eat an infamous West cookie

The sheer joy you get while eating a warm, gooey, chocolatey West cookie while it crumples in your hand is indescribable. However, trying to grab one after a fresh tray of them has been set down is a battle comparable to that of the Hunger Games. Be sure to grab one because they will change your life.

2. Try every flavor of ice cream at the Creamery

The Creamery is a Penn State landmark. How many other schools can say that they make their own ice cream on campus? From classic flavors like Peanut Butter Swirl to seasonal flavors like Mint Nittany, the creamery has so many options to choose from. But without trying them all, how can you know which one is your favorite?

3. Camp out for a football game at Nittanyville

Before every home game, crazy Penn State students will camp out in front of beaver stadium in order to stand in the front row. Standing in the front row of a Big Ten football game is a once in a lifetime experience that you won't ever forget!

4. Yell "We Are!" to a tour group

Everyone remembers going on a Penn State tour and hearing someone yell "We Are!" and responding with "Penn State!" Now's the time to return the favor and keep the tradition alive by doing the same for prospective students.

5. Take a picture with the Nittany Lion

Whether you’re cheering on the football team in Beaver Stadium or eating lunch on the HUB lawn, he’s always there to put a smile on your face and get you to participate in the famous “WE ARE” chant.

8. Dance in THON

THON is the world's largest student run philanthropy for childhood cancer and something that makes Penn State incredibly unique. Dancing for 46 hours may seem daunting, but in the end, it's all worth it!
