6 Alternative Penn State Quotes To Hang On Your Wall

Penn State decor is everywhere. From diploma frames to Penn State gnomes, it’s hard to find something that hasn’t been slapped with a Nittany Lion and painted blue and white. But as great as trinkets like the Penn State Mr. Potato Head are, Penn State’s merchandising could definitely stand for a little more diversity. Take for example, the musings of some of Penn State’s celebrities. Everyone from JoePa to Mike Waite has had a quote-worthy moment, and what better way to commemorate that than with some Etsy-inspired Penn State decor?


This two James Franklin side by side quote’s could easily adorn any room in your home. The left photo has a powerful, go-getting feel to it, which perfectly pairs with the impactful statement on the right. These two quotes are flawless for any true Penn State fan who wants to show their support.

BaeSeanIf those intense football quotes aren’t your thing, check out this more easy quote going by Penn State’s very own DaeSean Hamilton. Tweeted out from his personal twitter, DaeSean really hits on what everyone was thinking. This quote is perfect for your kitchen, where you can stare at it while you eat your very own bowl of sprinkles with milk.

Phone Case

Why buy a new Penn State phone case that  you and 40,000 other people have? Check out this fun Bill O’Brien quote, and let everyone know exactly how you feel about Rick Ross. It’s a sweet and simple statement, which makes it perfect for a phone case.

PrintWhile we’re talking about electronics, what better background for your computer than this monumental Mike Waite quote? Not only will you have the coolest looking laptop background around, but everyone behind you in class will hate you as well. So replace that photo of you and all your friends from home with this bad boy of a background.


If social issues are your thing, what better poster to hang up on any of your walls than this Nyeem Wartman-White tweet? Subtle enough to have anyone who sees it to wonder who this football player subtweeting, or what did he actually mean. It’s the perfect decor to finish any room.


And if you really can’t seem to tear yourself away from a good ole JoePa quote, why not choose this one? It’s a bit of an oldie, but still a goodie. What better way to tell all the girls you bring home that you’re not actually the money man you claimed to be at the bar? This pillow says it all!
