Take a step back in time and gain a greater understanding of Penn State’s most iconic building-Old Main! Every spring semester, the building that was originally the entirety of Penn State’s campus comes alive to tell the story of Penn State’s history.
Lion Ambassadors conduct tours throughout Old Main, where visitors encounter special guests, including past presidents and other characters who help describe the history of the building. Meanwhile, Lion Ambassador tour guides explain what the building and offices are used for today, showing just how far Penn State has come since its founding!
Enjoy food, entertainment, and activities and gain a greater appreciation for the building that is a symbol of Dear Old State.
This year's Old Main Open House will be held on Wednesday, April 19, 2017.
