Alumni Association To Host Pep Rally In Pittsburgh

The Penn State Alumni Association and its local Pittsburgh chapter will sponsor a pep rally in Pittsburgh this weekend on Saturday before the Pitt Game kicks off at Heinz Field.

The pep rally tent will be located behind the Carnegie Science Center in downtown Pittsburgh. The rally itself begins at 10 a.m., and the tent opens at 9 a.m. directly behind the Center on the North Shore.

The pep rally will include the Penn State Pep Band, Blue Sapphire Rachel Reiss, the Nittany Lion, Penn State cheerleaders, Lionettes, Penn State cheers and battle cries, and (perhaps most importantly) free refreshments. Penn State’s reunion game agains Pitt will kick of in Heinz Field at noon.

Parking lots around Heinz Field are on a first-come, first-serve basis, so parking is also available Downtown (take the “T” bus to Heinz Field) or in the Nova Garage using Exit 1C. Good luck tailgating with Pittsburgh’s regulations.

The Alumni Association asks that attendees use #PSUpeprally on social media when posting anything about the pep rally and Friday night’s alumni and friends mixer (which, if you aren’t registered, is already sold out). Don’t forget to use the new Snapchat filters made for the PSU-Pitt matchup.
