Butterflies, in general, prefer nectar-rich flowers that are bright in color. Shavers Creek Environmental Center is in the final phase of an extensive renovation and expansion project, and will be reopening to the public on Sept. 1.

  • Results Will Vary

    Amina Faye, a student in Penn State’s Musical Theatre program, along with the entire cast of ‘Results Will Vary’ performed for an audience of new Penn State students at Eisenhower Auditorium on the evening of June 24. The original, interactive theatre production explores the reality of life as a Penn State student.

  • Water Tower

    The water tower on the north end of the University Park campus provides a shaded pavilion with seating and lighting. Penn State needed to replace the old tower to meet water quality regulations and welcomed designs from the Stuckeman School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The project was completed in the fall of 2017.
