Faculty members climb a drilling rig

Participants in the Road Scholars Tour got to climb up into a rig to watch Marcellus Shale being drilled. The tour, now in its 16th year, is meant to introduce new faculty members to Penn State's Commonwealth Campuses and to the breadth and depth of the University's impact across Pennsylvania.
