Penn State students providing alternative activity on 'State Patty’s Day'
By: Lauren Hensley
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State students are finding a creative alternative to the "State Patty's" student-created drinking holiday.
In an effort to curb the drinking-related issues, the Council of LionHearts, a student organization, is gathering volunteers to participate in over 30 projects throughout the State College area.
"The Council of Lionhearts, for the third year in the row, is sponsoring the 'State Day of service,'" said Council of LionHearts President Zane Douglass. "It is a day of service where we offer alternative activities to students who don't want to partake in the student created-created holiday and we like to think of it as a relationship builder between the town and gown."
Douglass said more than 1,000 students have signed up to volunteer.
