Lion Ambassadors Give Tours of Old Main

You probably pass by Old Main at least once a day, but how often do you get to go inside of it? The prominent yet rather mysterious building doesn’t generally offer current students a whole lot, being filled with administrative offices.

That changed yesterday afternoon when the Penn State Lion Ambassadors held their annual Old Main Open House. The afternoon was filled with games, trivia, and appearances by the Pennharmonics, the Blue Band Trumpets, Penn State Majorettes, Blue Sapphire PJ Maierhofer, and the Nittany Lion. But the highlight of the afternoon for most attendees was the tour of Old Main.

The tour takes you through various floors of Old Main and ends with a trip up to the Bell Tower, where visitors can experience unparalleled views of campus and downtown State College. Before you get to the bell tower, though, you meet several costumed Ambassadors along the way who talk about what life at Penn State was like back when Old Main was the entirety of campus.

Staff photographer Charlotte Kohl was at the Open House and took the tour. Her pictures are below.

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
