No matter where you are on the planet, a trip to Walmart is usually an interesting experience. The State College Walmart — in this case, the one near the Megabus stop that most students frequent — is no different.
Sure, it has your Cheerios, Duck Dynasty DVDs, and solo cups just like every other Walmart. But the State College Walmart has two aisles dedicated to carrying just about every Penn State related item one could ever imagine. Don’t believe us? Here are the most unnecessary Penn State products available for purchase at Walmart:
1. This obnoxiously bedazzled iPhone case
2. This wind up toy
3. This Penn State gnome
4. This alternate Penn State gnome
5. This Nittany Lion blanket that will only keep your back, head, and half your hand warm
6. This air freshener
7. This over-priced pumpkin carving kit
8. These Nittany Lion loofas — because it is really not OK to be rubbing our mascot all over your body
9. Penn State knockoff Uggs
10. These mini-boxing gloves because they are perhaps the most useless thing to ever exist
11. These “luggage grabbers”
12. These exorbitantly expensive silly bandz
13. While not Penn State related, this just by far is the most unnecessary Walmart product
Now you know. Those two aisles in the State College Walmart dedicated to cheap Penn State attire is a real treasure trove.
WE ARE! Not going to buy this.

The largest private employer in the U.S. has announced today it plans to pay 100% college tuition and books for its associates.
Walmart said in the announcement from its corporate headquarters today 100% of college tuition and books for its associates will be paid for through its Live Better U (LBU) education program.
Starting Aug. 16, Walmart said it will remove the $1 a day fee for associates, making all education programs paid for by the company. This affords approximately 1.5 million part-time and full-time Walmart and Sam’s Club employees in the U.S. the opportunity to “earn college degrees or learn trade skills without the burden of education debt.”
As the largest U.S. private employer, Walmart said it is committing over the next five years, to invest nearly $1 billion “in career-driven training and development.”
“We are creating a path of opportunity for our associates to grow their careers at Walmart, so they can continue to build better lives for themselves and their families,” said Lorraine Stomski, senior vice president of learning and leadership at Walmart. “This investment is another way we can support our associates to pursue their passion and purpose while removing the barriers that too often keep adult working learners from obtaining degrees.”
The economy and job market have changed. Walmart claims it’s always looking for new ways to encourage more associates to pursue further education. Hence, the company has now amended the LBU program, removing the initial $1 a day approach, which had been designed “after consulting with experts, reviewing other employer-provided education programs and studying the research around what helps drive completion rates among adult working learners.”
Stomski said the program will add “in-demand college degree and certificate options in business administration, supply chain, and cybersecurity.”
Additionally, Walmart said it will add four academic partners, “including Johnson & Wales University, the University of Arizona, the University of Denver and Pathstream to the list of existing partners: “Brandman University, Penn Foster, Purdue University Global, Southern New Hampshire University, Wilmington University and Voxy EnGen.”
Walmart said with the fiscal year 2021 revenue of $559 billion, it employs 2.2 million associates worldwide, noting that it continues to be “a leader in sustainability, corporate philanthropy and employment opportunity.”

Penn State partnering with Walmart to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinic April 22-24
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State is partnering with Walmart to offer a COVID-19 vaccination clinic that is open to Penn State students, employees and dependents of employees age 16 and older beginning Thursday, April 22, through Saturday, April 24, inside Pegula Ice Arena on the University Park campus. The clinic will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Students and employees will be asked to show their Penn State ID upon arrival to the site, and dependents will need to acknowledge that they are the family member of an employee.
The clinic will offer 1,170 first-shot doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine over the three days. Under Phase 2 of Pennsylvania’s vaccine distribution plan, anyone age 16 and older is eligible for a vaccine. However, at this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved for those ages 16 and 17.
Appointments are required. Click here to sign up for an appointment. Those who do not have a MyIR account will need to sign up for an account prior to registering for an appointment. After registering and/or signing in, individuals will need to select "Scheduling" on the left side of the page and then "Schedule a New Service. "
The clinic will reopen May 13-15 to administer second doses of the vaccine to those who received the first dose at the April event. Individuals should only sign up for an April appointment if they know they are able to return to the clinic three weeks later to receive their second dose.
“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Walmart to offer this important vaccination opportunity to the Penn State community,” said Kelly Wolgast, director of Penn State’s COVID-19 Operations Control Center. “Available time slots are limited, and we expect appointments to be in high demand, so I urge any member of our community who has not already received a vaccine to sign up quickly.”
Penn State is strongly encouraging all students, faculty and staff to sign up to receive the first vaccine that is available to them. As an incentive for students to get vaccinated, the Penn State Berkey Creamery is offering a certificate for a free ice cream cone to the first 500 students who sign up for and receive their vaccine at the clinic. Other on-site incentives are planned as well for those who sign up to be vaccinated.
Although the vaccine is being offered at no cost, individuals should bring their insurance card to their appointment. In addition, individuals should arrive at Pegula Ice Arena’s Entrance B approximately 10 minutes before their scheduled appointment to allow time for paperwork completion and plan to stay 15-30 minutes after receiving their vaccine for monitoring. Those driving to Pegula for their appointment must follow all posted parking lot restrictions around the arena; individuals are encouraged to walk when possible.
Due to the vaccine clinic, walk-up COVID-19 testing will not be available at Pegula Ice Arena from April 22-24. Walk-up testing will continue to be offered at the Hintz Family Alumni Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, as usual.
In addition to the Pegula vaccine clinic, the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and Pennsylvania Department of Health are operating a Regional Vaccination Clinic inside the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State’s University Park campus.
The Pennsylvania Department of Health website features a map of vaccine providers that includes hospitals, urgent care centers, doctor’s offices and pharmacies, and also includes specific support and guidance for college students, including information about how students can ensure they receive their second vaccine dose once they leave campus. Several pharmacies, Mount Nittany Medical Center and Centre Volunteers in Medicine also are administering vaccines in the Centre Region.
The latest COVID-19 vaccination information for the Penn State community is available on the University’s ’s coronavirus information website.
