Lion Ambassadors Set to “Light Up the Past” on Friday Night

On a typical Fall Friday, you’ll often see the Lion Ambassadors touring prospective students around campus, but tomorrow night the tour route and material will be slightly altered.

This Friday evening, the Penn State Lion Ambassadors are set to host their annual Lantern Tours around campus. Should you choose to enjoy a Penn State flash back, you’ll be meeting several characters such as Old Coaly and Heinz Warneke on your tour through Penn State history.

This year, the theme is “Lighting Up the Past.” 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 annual event provides interesting insight into Penn State legend and lore. Tours will start at Old Main and will be given on a frequent basis from 7-9 p.m. Begin your weekend by exploring some University history — you just might learn something you didn’t know.
