Dear Old State

“For the Glory of Old State, for her founders strong and great. For the future that we wait, raise the song, raise the song.”

As one of the most recognizeable spots on campus, we couldn’t help but feature Old Main in our first snapshot of the year. Originally built in 1863, this breathtaking building is home to the Office of the President and hosts all kinds of events throughout the year right on its front steps and vast lawn. Though this shot is actually taken from the back, the Old Main Bell Tower makes this landmark unmistakable to anyone who’s been to Penn State.
