Old Main Open House 2k9
Old Main had its biannual Open House yesterday, an event run by the redoubtable Lion Ambassadors. I stopped by to check it out and take some pictures. What is the Open House? In short, the Ambassadors took us around Old Main pointing out the different offices and introducing us to “historical figures” played by other students. It was kitschy, but in a fun way.
Oh, hey Old Main! What should I do first?
How about some grubbin’? The Lion Ambassadors were serving a variety of food and drinks on the front porch of Old Main. I’m pretty sure that were at least as many Lion Ambassadors as there were other guests. There was also a kiosk where you could pick up a ticket for the tour! Like a free haunted fun house!
Check out the rest of our tour after the jump.
Still grubbin’, but now with more chattin’.
I wonder what they’re watching…
A line dance! And how!
K… time to go on the tour… it’s hard to see from this picture, but there were definitely more security officers than I would have expected.
Oh, hey! USAS, do yall remember this couch? The ironic thing is that later in the tour, the tour guide made a point of saying that Graham Spanier has basically an open door policy… o rly?
Speaking of Graham, that’s him on the left! Seriously… I thought I was going to get to meet the Prez myself, but not this time. On his right is Evan Pugh.
Yep, that’s Evan Pugh alright.
This Lion Ambassador was telling a story about stealing the clapper– the hammer in the bell. Love his facial expression.
Another stop on the tour. The girl on the left was my guide– thanks!
Heading up the bell tower!
“Someday, Graham, all this will be yours…”
It was a cool view though. Notice the mural in the foreground. It was put there so that the staffers with offices on that level would have more than a blank wall to look at all day.
Wish that the bell tower was open more often… it was a cool view.

We think Nittany Lions like Makenna Marisa and Parker Washington are more than deserving of their own trading cards.
