Lion Shrine Mania: Our Favorite Shrine Pictures
It is a right of passage to take a picture at the Lion Shrine. Whether you’ve done it after graduation or with your best friends we’re all guilty.
We asked you for your best Lion Shrine pictures and you delivered. Here are some of our favorites.
Taking Down The Lion
Instead of taking down his opponent, this wrestler decided to set his eyes on the Nittany Lion instead.
The Harmon family takes pictures at the Lion Shrine every chance they get. Both of their children went to Penn State, and their daughter Jess was a cheerleader.
This family used some creativity for their family picture. Each number on their jersey represents the year that person graduated from Penn State.
Nicole Hatchard decided to step up her picture game and brave a handstand on top of the Lion.
Growing Up Lions
Meredith Barnes grew up a Penn State fan, and graduated a Nittany Lion in 2015.
Nathan Raver was seven when he first took a picture at the Shrine. 11 years later, he returned to take another in the same place.
Sisters Molly (left) and Kathleen (right) took their first picture on the Lion in 2002. They recreated the same shot in 2015, this time as students. Molly is a freshman and Kathleen is a junior.
Lion Shrine Love
Frank shared pictures from his proposal to Morgan, making this spot even more special for the couple.
Alyssa and Nick got engaged in front of the Lion. Just days after this picture, Nick was diagnosed with cancer. Luckily, two years later Nick is happily cancer free and they are now married.
As long as the Shrine is still there, pictures will be taken. Penn Staters have grown up in front of the statue and they will forever have the photos to prove that, once a Nittany Lion, always a Nittany Lion.
