Campus to roll out 'Blue Carpet' for grand opening celebration

9/22/2010 —

Since moving to its new Center Valley location in August 2009, Penn State Lehigh Valley has spent the year making the facility reflect the blue and white spirit of the campus community. On October 15, the campus will roll out the blue carpet for the Lehigh Valley community with a grand opening celebration and open house. The celebration will kick off at noon with a brief program featuring Penn State University President Graham Spanier.


"We are eager to share our beautiful new campus with the Lehigh Valley community," says Ann Williams, chancellor of Penn State Lehigh Valley. "This celebration will give our community a chance, not just to see the facility, but to meet the dynamic student body, distinguished faculty, and dedicated staff, who continue the nearly century-long tradition of Penn State serving this region."


The noon-time event will take place at the north entrance of the campus, adjacent to the Nittany Lion Terrace, and will be immediately followed by an open house showcasing Penn State Lehigh Valley students and faculty, activities including photos with the Nittany Lion, and refreshments.
