Reminder: Nittany Lion Shrine closed for renovations this summer starting May 13

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Beginning May 13, Penn State's Nittany Lion Shrine will be closed to visitors this summer for extensive renovations to improve lighting, accessibility and landscaping.

Depending on many variables that can impact the progress of the work, including weather, there may be limited access between University Park's Aug. 10 Summer Commencement and Sept. 6, the target completion date of the project.

Although preparatory work on the area began in April, the statue will be open to visitors May 3-5 for Spring Commencement, and May 10-12 for ROTC commissioning and the Law School commencement ceremonies.

The renovations are a gift of Penn State's class of 2012.
