Brainstorming Selfie Locations For Penn State Hoops Head Coach Mike Rhoades

Move over ladies, there’s a new selfie pro in State College.

Newly hired Penn State men’s basketball head coach Mike Rhoades is bringing more than just his “bold, different, aggressive” mentality to Happy Valley. Rhoades is bringing his masterful selfie game with him as well.

As Rhoades begins to settle in, we took the time to imagine where else Penn State’s newest selfie king could soon be snapping his next masterpiece.

Old Main

A classic like none other.

Rhoades can’t avoid snagging a selfie in front of the embodiment of Old State. Say hi to Neeli for us!


Although they aren’t in season quite yet, surely Rhoades already understands the magnitude of these incredible, quaint, blue works of art, and what they mean to Penn State’s student body.

Bryce Jordan Center

MTV cribs! Rhoades is snapping flicks in his new home.

The Basement Nightspot

Well, this took an interesting turn. I guess everyone has to give The Basement a shot at one point or another. Party it up, coach!

Frat Daylong

We aren’t entirely sure how Rhoades got on the roof of a frat to secure this momentous selfie. Do you think whoever was on door duty asked him to name five brothers?

Onward State

It was very nice of Rhoades to stop at Carnegie and take a selfie with one of the country’s largest student-run media outlets. If he picks recruits as well as he picks campus media outlets to associate himself with, then the basketball program is in good hands.

SOC 119

Wow! Rhoades is already out here volunteering for Sam Richard’s SOC 119 class! We hope he had a great time!

Dunkin’ Donuts

We know that Penn State football head coach James Franklin is a Starbucks stan. But according to a tweet from a recruiting visit, it appears that Rhoades prefers his coffee from Dunkin’.


Rhoades is really getting the full campus experience by taking a few laps on the Bloop. Enjoy the ride, coach!

Onward State vs. The Daily Collegian Dodgeball Game

Rhoades somehow captured the emotions The Daily Collegian staff members experienced when Onward State made light work in a 3-0 dodgeball sweep. Read the room, Rhoades.
