This was our first time visiting State College. Penn State is really a pretty campus, just what you imagine a college campus should look like! There is a mix of old and new, beautifully combined in a perfect little college town. I can see why people love to go here to school!

We spent 2 days in State College on a fall foliage travel week. The campus is a luxury to walk around - no one strays off the sidewalks.

Of course, as an alumni, I love the campus and the game atmosphere is awesome. The weather was awesome, but the game was not great (due to the loss). Traffic is under control and security is present

We went up for our very first time to Beaver Stadium for a football game. The stadium was pretty clean. Bathrooms were okay - considering the amount of people there. Nice family environment. No smoking or drinking! Awesome! Helpers/Workers were helpful enough. Would definately return.

Penn State is a very fun place to visit. We took in a football game, went to the museum on campus visited the Nittany Lion statue, walked around College and Beaver street. It was quite a fun trip.

There are so many interesting things to see for a relaxing mid-week visit. You may not have time to enjoy all of them when you are visiting a student. There's more to PSU than football.
