TEDxPSU Hosts Old Main Bell Tower Tour
Have you ever seen Penn State from above? In the second of four TEDxPSU events (three TED mini-salons and one main event on Nov. 13) a a few fortunate individuals took part in a brief tour of the iconic Old Main bell tower.
The event began on the steps of Old Main around 7 p.m. where an excited, TED-enthused group chatted about the delightful fall evening and anxiously awaited the upward ascent to the bell tower. Once inside, a Penn State Lion Ambassador shared a few PSU archival tidbits about Old Main and the bell tower, the final destination of the brief tour.
On the top level of the tower were gorgeous views of Penn State campus, framed by the setting sun over the practice fields west of Atherton Street. For those of you wondering, there are no hands on the tower clock, but they will return when repairs are completed.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to climb up the winding three-foot-wide bell tower staircase, to one of the highest points on Penn State’s campus, I highly recommend you add it to your PSU bucket list. Until then, here are a few late afternoon, autumn photographs from the TEDxPSU tour of the Old Main bell tower, and of Penn State’s most cherished views.
