Send Us Your Penn State-Themed Rooms

We all know how deeply rooted Penn State pride is, and it’s no surprise when you find out that parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, and cousins all chose the Happy Valley route. Here at Onward State, we are constantly impressed at how Penn State families show their pride, so we want to continue showcasing just how dedicated some are to the Blue and White.

This week, we want to see your unmistakable enthusiasm and obvious creativity within the confines of your own homes. That’s right, we’re talking about Penn State-themed rooms. We know tons of families have them (our staff members admitted to their own) and we think that’s awesome.

All types of rooms will work. From quaint and classy Penn State decor, to extreme, in-your-face embellishments that would make your friends’ eyes roll, we want to see it all. Even if you just have odd Penn State objects all gathered together, if it’s Penn State themed, we want to see it. The best submissions will be featured here, so now is your (and your house’s) time to shine.

Send a picture or seven of your Penn State-themed room to [email protected], along with your name and a short description of what inspired you to dedicate a full room of your house to Dear Old State.

We can’t wait to see how Nittany Lion pride has inspired you interior design!
