Lion Ambassadors to Host Lantern Tours on Thursday and Friday

On a typical Thursday and Friday afternoons, you can usually find the Lion Ambassadors giving prospective student tours around campus. But this week, the usual tour material and route will be slightly altered.

This Thursday and Friday evening, The Penn State Lion Ambassadors are set to host their annual Lantern Tours around campus. Should you flash back a few years to your high school days and join them you’ll be meeting several characters such as Old Coaly and Joe Paterno on your tour through Penn State history. This year, the theme is “A Step Back in Time.” Your tour guides will give you a taste of what Dear Old State was like back in the day–and if that’s not reason enough to join a group, there will also be free food and live entertainment from various student groups across campus.

This is an awesome event put on by the Lion Ambassadors each year. They really provide interesting insight into Penn State legend and lore. Tours will start at Old Main and will be given from 7-9 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday nights. Be sure to stop by, you might just learn a thing or two about the school you call home.
