Brainstorming Penn State Mac & Cheese Shapes

Among the many easy meals for college students, macaroni and cheese is arguably one of the most common. Many students have grown up eating Kraft Mac & Cheese which has a long history of creating special-themed noodles, often featuring iconic cartoon characters. 

With the essential cheesy meal on our minds thanks to the return of Spongebob Squarepants noodles, our staff decided to create Penn State-themed mac and cheese shapes and bring the Happy Valley noodle game to a whole other level.

Old Main

Old Main is the key to some Penn Staters’ hearts, just like mac and cheese. If you don’t know about the history of this iconic Penn State landmark, mac a mental note to brush up on the details.


Like the mac to some cheese, Penn State gamedays wouldn’t be complete without the iconic cocktagons. Who wouldn’t want to take a bite out of one of these?

Penn State Squirrels

Life on campus is cheddar with the Penn State squirrels.

The Den

Similar to the Lion’s Den, mac and cheese is always a crowd pleaser — it always pastas the test! In case you need a reminder for Tuesday night, roll Den and have a (cheese) ball.

The Lion Shrine

With the Lion Shrine being a common spot where Penn Staters say “cheese” for photos, we thought it was only fitting. After all, the cheesier the better.

THON Ribbon

The Penn State-themed mac and cheese market would be missing a crucial element without a THON ribbon. At the end of the day, mac and cheese is For the Kids.
