Help Us Find The Ultimate Penn State Grandparents

Penn State has the largest alumni network in the world, and plenty of current students have a Happy Valley history that spans multiple generations. In fact, the university is what it is today because of those who came here before us.

Thus, it’s about time the grandmas and grandpas of Dear Old State get the recognition they deserve — and we need your help. Do you know a grandparent with a unique sense of pizzazz and a fiery Penn State spirit? Does your tailgate-loving gram finally deserve some time in the spotlight? We think so too.
