Photos offer bird's-eye view of University Park campus

University Park, Pa. -- The new issue of The Penn Stater magazine offers readers an unusual perspective on the University Park campus: from above. In April, Public Information photographer Andy Colwell and Penn Stater editor Tina Hay hopped on a helicopter and spent more than an hour shooting aerial photos of the campus. The resulting photo essay is the cover story of the July-August issue of The Penn Stater, mailed free to Alumni Association members.

To see a sampling of Andy Colwell's aerial photos, visit online. For the Penn Stater's collection of images from that shoot, visit and click on the "Photos" tab. Information on joining the Alumni Association is available at online.
