Penn State: Then and Now

Penn State Live posted an interesting slideshow yesterday that captured the progression of Penn State’s campus over more than 100 years. From the Farmers’ High School, to the Agricultural College of Pennsylvania, The Pennsylvania State College, and finally The Pennsylvania State University, our learning community has done a lot of growing up over the years.

Without further ado, here are some of the photographs, courtesy of the University Archives via Penn State Live.

Allen Street Gates, circa 1924
