For sixty Penn State students from three campuses, six days was so much more than that.

One of their friends was on the tour and recorded a video of the proposal and posted it on YouTube. The video gained great amounts of traffic on the site, when Penn State's official Facebook profile linked to it. Deciding that the video might result in negative feelings, they removed the video from the site. It has since returned and is up for your viewing pleasure. This is their story.
