Annual PS i(heart)U To Celebrate Penn State With A Week Of Festivities
The Blue & White Society will celebrate its eighth annual PS i(heart)U week April 16-20 prior to Blue-White Weekend.
Each day of festivities, created to “encourage university pride and celebrate Penn State traditions,” will kick off at 9 a.m. at pop-up tents in different locations on campus and will continue with special events throughout the afternoon and evening.
Here’s a schedule of the week’s events:
Monday, April 16
The pop-up tent will open on the HUB back patio until 10:30 a.m. PSi(heart)U will take over the HUB with popcorn, snow cones, and free caricatures from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
