I’m sure I speak for most students and alumni when I say that the day I received my Penn State acceptance letter was one of the happiest days of my life. The large white envelope exclaiming “You Are Penn State” is a sign for applicants to rejoice — the wait is finally over!
Despite frigid temperatures this winter, letter carriers are still delivering the good news to Penn State’s Class of 2022. Sure enough, future Nittany Lions and their families took to social media to share their excitement.
Great news for this guy — one and done!
This future Penn Stater was quick to use his acceptance letter to troll his sister, a Temple student.

Lastly, the Alumni Association shared this video of Jack Hertkorn letting out tears of joy after his lifelong dream of coming to Penn State came true.
