Crowdsource: We Want To Hear Your Best Penn State ‘Small World’ Story

It’s a small world, folks.

With 750,000 living Penn State alumni, people are still stumbling upon the weirdest and most intricate Nittany Lion connections around every corner.

Stemming from “The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” a concept that essentially revolves around the fact that no two people on Earth are more than six connections apart, we believe all Penn Staters have some crazy connection to one another.

Everything is always connected, and lucky for us, these connections make our big school feel a little bit smaller. Whether it’s the brother of a cousin’s aunt’s chiropractor or simply your next-door neighbor, we want to hear about it.

Fill out the form below to see if you have the wildest web of connections.
