Tracy Knittel, The Daily Collegian

Tracy Knittel, The Daily Collegian

Lasting legacy: Despite single-digit temperatures, more than 60 people gathered outside the Sue Pohland Paterno Catholic Center last night to commemorate the second anniversary of Joe Paterno’s death. Many students created luminaries with messages honoring Paterno’s legacy, making for some beautiful photos—like the one above, from The Daily Collegian‘s Tracy Knittel. “Paterno helped make this school what it is,” Senior Alex Wismer told The Collegian. “That’s something that they’ll never be able to take away.”

Party’s over: More news on the continuing State Patty’s Day crackdown: In yesterday’s meeting of the State Patty’s Day Task Force, owners of several downtown establishments agreed to close their doors on the student-created holiday, though the specific establishments weren’t specified. Apartment owners are also taking action; they’re discussing ways to eliminate or reduce visitors and parties during the weekend. The UPUA is continuing to meet with local business owners, who will decide individually whether they will reduce hours, limit alcohol service, or close on Saturday, March 1. Says VP of Student Affairs Damon Sims: “It will be another full-court press led in part by students and aimed at ending the event if possible.”

Cool advice: Yes, it’s still freezing in State College, in case you were wondering. But luckily, an article from today’s Onward State helps lighten the mood. Though intended for students, OS‘s “10 Tips for Surviving the Icepocalypse” can certainly apply to anyone braving the polar vortex this week. My personal favorite (and the subject of a tirade our poor art director Marc Kauffman had to endure this morning): Don’t wear Uggs.
