Nittany Lion Mascots 3

Nittany Lion Mascots 3

Twelve former mascots returned to Penn State during Homecoming weekend to attend the University Libraries talk and to celebrate its exhibit and bookmark series, "The Lions Roar: Penn State Spirit," and to share their memories as Penn State's beloved mascot. At far right, Alumni Fellow Dan Kohlhepp, who became the mascot in 1967, started the mascot's tradition of performing one-arm push-ups. To the mascots who succeeded him, he apologized for their sore arms.
