Academics aside, college is all about the experience! So we're compiling a list of the Top 20 things that a student MUST do before leaving Happy Valley.

We need your help to put together a great list of long-standing traditions on campus and/or in the State College community! We want to know the things you miss most about Penn State and Happy Valley, and/or the top things on your list of things to do when you come back as an alum!

Here is our list...

Play Ultimate Frisbee on Old Main or Hub lawn
Climb Mount Nittany
One word: Tailgate
Get lost in the stacks of Paterno library
Dance at THON
Start a snowball fight with another residence hall
Prepare last minute for tests with Nittany Notes
Attend a white out game with 110,000 of your friends
Eat Late-Night pizza. Your choice: College or Canyon
Get your picture taken at the Nittany Lion Shrine AND the JoePa statue
Ski (or snowboard or tube) at Tussey Mountain
Grab a window booth at the Corner Room
Stand in line for a weekend Waffle Shop breakfast (it's worth it!)
Eat Peachy Paterno at the Creamery
Order grilled stickeys at The Diner
