Decorative lights go out for Earth Hour

University Park, PA — On Saturday, March 28, at 8:30 p.m., Penn State's University Park campus joined in the global effort known as "Earth Hour" by turning off the exterior decorative lights of Old Main, as well as lights elsewhere on campus. In addition to Old Main, decorative floodlights at the Lion Shrine, the Nittany Lion Inn and the Information Sciences and Technology building were shut off.  Penn State students suggested various building lights to consider, and after safety evaluations, all were approved.
