Residence Halls To Remain Open A Day Late For Michigan Game

Penn State announced this week the dorms will remain open until Sunday, November 22 at 10 a.m. to allow students to stay in State College for the football game against Michigan on Saturday. Penn State Housing, which usually closes the dorms on Saturday for Thanksgiving break, decided to keep the dorms open to allow students to see the final home game, which is the fan-selected white out game. Students will have to vacate the dorms by 10 a.m. unless they have an extended contract with Penn State Housing to stay over Thanksgiving break.

Student attendance for the white out game is in question since many students will be itching to go home for break. The hope is to keep as many students around for the game since it is an important one for the Nittany Lions.

Penn State football personalities are excited about the updated plan, anticipating a good student crowd on Saturday. Student attendance at football games this year was criticized more than once, but the hope is that students stick around for the matchup next Saturday.

The changing of the date and time the dorms will be closing mimics the change from last year, when housing opened the dorms a day early so students could attend the game against Michigan State the weekend after Thanksgiving. The game against Michigan State last year saw an attendance of 99,902 — a decent number for it being break — and Penn State Housing hopes for a repeat this year, as well as a strong student showing against Michigan.

The dorms will reopen on Sunday, November 29 at 10 a.m.
