Levels Nightclub was filled with party-goers Wednesday night for “I’m Shmacked.”
The independent filmmakers of “I’m Shmacked” have created films about other colleges such as Arizona State University, Indiana University, and University of Miami.
Students were lining up as early as 9:20 p.m. in the hopes of getting extra tickets from no-shows at the event.
The line went past Greenwich Court where Big Bowl Noodle House is located and by 9:30 p.m. the line surpassed McLanahan’s.
Students varying in age and attire danced around while popular hits such as Psy’s “Gangnam Style” and Avicii’s “Levels” blasted through the frosted glass doors.
While the line grew some of those grew agitated about the wait. Around 9:35 p.m. a bouncer announced that there had been a mistweet and that the doors were to open at 10 p.m. as opposed to 9:30.
Although this put a slight damper on some of those who were waiting in the brisk, frosty evening, most were just excited for the event to start.
The arrival of filmmakers Arya Toufanian and Jeffrie Ray in Happy Valley had many students excited about the possibility of being in a video.
Brenda Blain said she had never been to Levels Nightclub before but was excited to see what it was all about and could not wait to enjoy the nightclub scene.
“[I’m] most excited about getting in the video,” said Blain (freshman-food sciences).
Though many students were adamant about getting into the “I’m Shmacked” video, some were just there to have a good time.
Daphne Rossler said she was happy she could spend the night with her good friend. Rossler (freshman-business) said that although she would try to be in the video, it was not the most important thing to her.
Freshman Alexa Marks agreed that she too wanted to try to be in the “I’m Shmacked” video but she was happy to just enjoy the whole experience of the night.
Marks (freshman-nutrition-dietetics) said she was especially looking forward to spending the night dancing and making college memories.
“I don’t really know what to expect [tonight], but hopefully it will be fun,” she said.
The outfits that made their way through the doors Wednesday evening had a strong theme of Penn State attire. Many girls had cut up Penn State t-shirts pairing them with heels and a skirt while many of the guys were decked out in Penn State pinnies and hats, often matched with brightly colored wayfarer sunglasses.
Many other clothes seen on Wednesday night included many khaki/button down combinations for the guys and many jean/tank top combinations for the ladies.
One outfit that particularly stood out was a girl who paired a blue and white tutu with a Penn State shirt.
Levels was open to those eighteen and over on Wednesday and did not serve alcohol. Bottled water and Redbull were served.
Many of the guys were also excited and shouting about some “I’m Shmacked” condoms they had gotten.
By 10:30 p.m. the nightclub was filling and was rapidly gaining more party-goers by the minute.
