President’s Office Open House Will Give Students A Look Inside Old Main

Hundreds of Penn State students walk by Old Main each day, and likely thousands of us have a shot of the building on our Instagrams. As picturesque as the focal point of campus may be, not many students know what’s on the inside.

Fortunately, the President’s Office Open House event will give the Penn State community a peek inside mystery that is Old Main’s interior. Better yet, you’ll even have the opportunity to see where President Barron helms the university ship from.

The annual event will be held on Friday, October 14 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Old Main. Lion Ambassadors will take visitors on tours of the building, the bell tower, and the President Barron’s office. Visitors can also view the Land-Grant Frescoes painted on the walls of Old Main’s lobby. The murals are some of the largest of their kind on campus and depict the inception of the university.

The event is open to students, staff, faculty, and the public. Refreshments will also be served.
