  1. My father got his BS from here, my brother got his BS as well. I got my MS and MEd and my daughter just graduated with her BA. Most is true regardless of the generation. But you forgot to add Ye Olde College Diner and the grilled stickies!

  2. Every one is true as gold. As someone who’s about to graduate, it brings a tear to my eye to remind myself all the things I will miss about Old State.

  3. In the 70’s you knew it was,spring at Penn State when the guys streaked threw the quad, with their underwear on there heads and the campus police chased them.

  4. I would have thought there would have been mention of the diner on this. Color me disappointed. Kinda like I used to be when we wanted to get some grilled stickys after some drinking, only to discover that the diner had one of its semi-annual kitchen fires.

  5. When we stood at childhood’s gate,
    Shapeless in the hands of fate,
    Thou didst mold us, dear old State,
    Dear old State, dear old State.

    those words rang so true for my experience at dear old state
