We met our son at Penn State on Saturday. He was attending a journalism conference there, coming from his home in Pittsburgh, and we drove from Philadelphia. PSU, in State College, PA, is about halfway between the two cities and so it made a nice chance for us to have a quick visit on a beautiful sunny day.
We are familiar with Penn State, as it’s where our son went to college. We haven’t been back there since his graduation four years ago. We walked around the campus and took the opportunity to leave two figurines.
One is at the entrance to his dorm – he lived in Atherton Hall all four years. The other is at the entrance of Carnegie Hall, where the School of Communications is located – his major was journalism and he now works as a newspaper reporter.
So these little figurines are in two very meaningful places for our family.
What’s the meaning of the title of this post? PSU students chant: We are..Penn State! at all kinds of events. The slight amendment just seemed to fit for these two ladies and their new situations.
