Reunion Weekend Schedule


Happy Hour

7 p.m.

Whiskers at the Nittany Lion Inn

If you’re coming into town on Friday, join fellow Collegian alumni for an informal happy hour at Whisker’s. From there, feel free to take your group to Cafe 210 West (Teas please), Zeno’s (is the beer passport still a thing?), the Adam’s Apple (we’ve missed you, Original Sins), Chumley’s (Strawberry Nesquik Martinis!), The Skeller (can you still handle a case study?) or whatever was your favorite college bar.


Tour: What’s new on campus?

10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Meet at Old Main

The Lion Ambassadors will take us on a walking tour to show off what’s new on campus. Even if you graduated last year, we bet something around here has changed. We’ll also spend some time in the Carnegie Building exploring the original Collegian office and what the building is used for today.

Football watch party

Whiskers at the Nittany Lion Inn
