Penn Stater seek stories about first days on campus

Memories of arriving on campus last a lifetime for many alumni. Editors of The Penn Stater magazine want to hear stories about being a brand-new student on any Penn State campus. Stories about packing at home, setting up a residence hall room, tearfully saying goodbye to Mom and Dad, making first friends, getting lost on campus -- whatever stands out vividly years after graduation -- all are possibilities for submission.

Stories (no more than 300 words) should be e-mailed to, faxed to (814) 863-5690 or snail-mailed to The Penn Stater magazine, Hintz Family Alumni Center, University Park, Pa. 16802.

The best tales will be included in an upcoming issue of The Penn Stater magazine. Submissions are due by June 8, and may be edited for length and clarity.
