Small Section Of Schwab Auditorium Balcony Collapses

Schwab Auditorium was evacuated Monday morning after a small section of the balcony overhang collapsed. The 2×8 piece of plaster fell into the auditorium scattering debris in the aisle and several seats.

Approximately 500 people were in the building for Spend a Summer Day, a program to help prospective students and families better learn about the school and campus. The program was relocated to Thomas.

One person was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center where they were treated for minor injuries. Another was examined on site and released by emergency medical help.

Building engineers and environmental health and safety teams are examining the building and it is closed until further notice.
