Nittany Nation Needs YOU

You might not know this, but if you’re a Penn State student, you’re in Nittany Nation.

If you don’t know what that is, let me tell you.

Nittany Nation is the student section of the Penn State Men’s Basketball team. Our official mission is to foster excitement and support for the basketball program of Penn State University and to gather, organize, and educate current students in support of the Penn State basketball program.

Most people know us as those kids who sit in the front row, holding the “We Believe” signs. Well yes, those are some of our loudest members and current executive officers, but that’s just a small percentage of who we are and what we want to become.

We want your help. We need your help.

Have you ever been to a Penn State basketball game? If not, why? If so, did you enjoy it? Did you go to Hoops Madness? What benefits do you think season ticket holders should have?

We know there are issues. Seating, ticketing, that awkward moment when the other team is shooting foul shots and we’ve got random big heads and no official chants going on. This year we helped start the Home Court Challenge, with each Big Ten student section in contention for a $1,000 check to a charity of their choice if they can stop the other team from making the most free throws. I’ll be honest – we were in last for quite some time. We need your ideas to help up become a bigger contender next year!

We want to hear from YOU. We want to improve and become the best student section in the Big Ten, and maybe even the country.

We want to hear it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly. What has YOUR Penn State Basketball experience been like?

Coach Chambers has brought the most exciting team to the BJC that we’ve seen in years. He’s already turning heads in the Big Ten Conference with energy and attitude from a team that’s constantly diving for loose balls, taking charges, and, have I mentioned Tim Frazier? They deserve a crowd and we want to give them the best we’ve got.

Send your questions, comments, and concerns to [email protected]. I look forward to hearing from you!

Maddy is the recently elected President of Nittany Nation.
