Tell Us About The Craziest Place You’ve Met A Penn Stater

Spring break has come and gone and students have made their way back to campus, whether that’s from the comforts of home or the white-sand beaches of a tropical island. If you were lucky enough to embark on a vacation to a distant city or warmer weather, it’s likely you left all thoughts of school work and State College behind.

However, with one of the largest alumni networks in the country, it’s also likely you spotted a Penn State T-shirt or two no matter how far away you were from Happy Valley. We know there are Penn Staters everywhere, and we want to hear about the times you were shocked to see a fellow Nittany Lion. Did you run into someone sporting a Penn State hat across the country? Starting a “We Are” chant with a stranger in Cancun? Buying you a beer in the Tulsa Airport because you were wearing the blue and white?

If you’ve seen just how expansive Penn State is and have a crazy or interesting story to prove it, send the following to [email protected]:

  • Where you were visiting
  • Why you were visiting
  • How you spotted the Penn Stater
  • A brief summary of the encounter

Help us see how far and wide Penn State spreads. Because while Penn State may not live everywhere, it still lives in a lot of places.
