The HUB Lawn Will Be Back In Business In April

Students and student organizations will be able to enjoy the HUB lawn starting April 1.

The HUB lawn has been a primary spot for many gatherings in the past, whether they’re students tanning or organized get-togethers like carnivals, fairs, speakers, and concerts. After being closed for maintenance, the HUB lawn will once again be a prime location to hold these events. Those who want to use the space for future events are able to do so through contacting the Event Management Office, found in room 125 of the HUB.

OPP is responsible for maintaining the HUB lawn, while the Union and the Student Activities department is responsible for handling the reservations piece. “We work together on keeping it a viable place for students to congregate,” said Mary Edgington, Senior Director of Union and Student Activities.

Weather permitting, it looks like Penn State students will see a lot more going on at the HUB lawn this spring. Organizations looking to reserve a spot are encouraged to contact the Event Management Office about possible reservations sooner rather than later.

“It is a wonderful venue for the right type of event,” Edgington said. “It is also a great place to relax, eat, study, etc. when the weather cooperates!”
