Lantern Tours Guide From Past To Present

The Lion Ambassadors will host their annual Lantern Tours this evening from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. starting at Old Main. Don’t miss this chance to cross a Penn State staple off your bucket list!

Lantern Tours should last approximately 45 minutes and will take you through an interactive view of Penn State’s history as Lion Ambassadors bring to life characters such as George Atherton, Charles Schwab, Milton Eisenhower, and Evan Pugh. Free food will be provided as well as entertainment from a capella group Blue in the FACE, RAM Squad, and Whiplash Dance Team.

Planning Committee Director Annie Urish invites both students and members of the State College community to take advantage of this opportunity to learn unique facts about Penn State that are not widely known. Stories about Sue Paterno painting the lion shrine orange and old-school dating policies will be shared, as well as other legends about the university.

At the end of the route, guests are invited to take an optional tour of the Old Main bell tower, which will provide a beautiful view of campus during the evening hours. This is one of the two times the bell tower is open, the other being in the spring for the Lion Ambassadors’ Old Main Open House event.

Lantern Tours only happen once a year, so grab some friends and enjoy a stroll from the past to the present with the Lion Ambassadors.

“If you’ve ever seen the movie You’ve Got Mail, you’ll understand me when I say I have the “Kathleen Kelly Syndrome.” I often have trouble saying exactly what I mean. Instead, I find it easier to outsource by using quotes or songs to convey my message. That’s why you’ll find a few of my favorites scattered throughout this post: my senior column.”
