Favorite thing: Mount Nittany is the tallest of the large hills that surround State College and is visable from Beaver Stadium. It may look puny but it's actually quite a hike; be sure to get down before it gets dark because it's easy to get lost.
the mountain may not seem that tall but campus looks awfully tiny from the top :-)
it's a really nice view, especially at sunset
Favorite thing: you MUST go to a Nittany Lions football game at the fabulous Beaver Stadium - one of the biggest in the country - holding more than 110,000 people. It's an experience like no other.
