Penn State’s campus is a busy and bustling place, with over 40,000 students heading to class and in and out of scores of buildings on a normal weekday. Sometimes, when wrapped up in our own lives, it is easy to forget about Penn State’s storied past and traditions, even though every single spot on campus has its own unique place in Penn State history. That’s where Campus Showcase comes in.
Campus Showcase is an event designed to highlight a different area of campus each year, and incorporates the location’s history and tradition with good food, activities, and music in addition to tours that educate guests on the selected campus landmark. The first Campus Showcase spotlighted University House and the Hintz Family Alumni Center. Lion Ambassadors presented live tours featuring past presidents, their families, and other important university leaders. Those outside waiting for tours were able to enjoy a fall-themed festival.
This year, Campus Showcase took place on September 22, 1:00-4:00pm outside of the new Bio-Behavioral Health Building!
