We Want To Find The Best Views From Your Dorms And Apartments

If you haven’t realized by now, Happy Valley is one of the most visually appealing places in the world. If you don’t see that, it might be time to get your eyes checked. Campus, downtown, and the highlands are all picturesque landscapes that make our hearts swoon with Penn State pride. And the best part? Everyone gets to see this beautiful place a little bit differently.

That’s why we’re asking you to send us the best views from your dorms, apartments, and houses. Do you wake up to a gorgeous Mount Nittany sunrise? Are you slapped in the face by Old Main when you look out your window? The Penn State grand entrance signs, Beaver Stadium, and even the scenic State College, er, “skyline” are all fair game.

If you think your view of State College, campus, or the surrounding area is the best there is, send the following to [email protected]:

  • Name (and your roommates’ names if you’re so inclined)
  • Where you live (name of the hall or building will do)
  • As many pictures as you’d like of your killer view
  • A short description of what we’re looking at

We’re excited to see what you see…and don’t be surprised if you have some new neighbors next year if the view is really great.
