Climb Old Main at Bell Tower Bash

The typical Penn State student passes University Park’s most prestigious building several times a week, yet rarely has the opportunity to ascend its historic bell tower.

On Wednesday afternoon, students and others will have the opportunity to explore the ins, outs, and roofs of Old Main. From 1 to 4 p.m., celebrate Old Main’s history, consume free food, enjoy the entertainment by various student groups, and of course, scale the bell tower of one of Penn State’s oldest and most beautiful buildings.

The Penn State Lion Ambassadors, the hosts for the event, will be taking photos for those overlooking Happy Valley while on top of Old Main. Additionally, during the last hour of the event (3 to 4 p.m.), the Lion Ambassadors be offering “Priority Tours” to seniors, allowing them to ascend up the bell tower and snap a photo one last time before graduation.

Senior or not, climbing the Old Main Bell Tower is something that’s on almost every Penn Stater’s bucket list.
