Penn State students go mad for Cramer

University Park, Pa. — CNBC's "Mad Money w/Jim Cramer" filmed before an audience of more than 2,000 Penn State students and community members Wednesday (March 26) afternoon at Eisenhower Auditorium on the University Park campus, with the show broadcast later Wednesday night on the cable network.

The enthusiastic crowd asked questions and heard the popular host and financial expert discuss issues such as oil refiners, the American steel renaissance and his own financial success. U.S. Steel CEO John Surma, a 1976 Penn State Smeal College of Business graduate, was Cramer's special guest for the show, part of Cramer's "Back to School Tour." Cramer also heard pitches from the student members of the Smeal's Nittany Lion Fund, and earlier in the day signed books's in the Atrium of the Business Building.

Getting into the Penn State spirit, Cramer, a Montgomery County native, sported blue, and the Nittany Lion was on hand to entertain the crowd between commericals. Penn State gear adorned the stage, and at one point Cramer donned a Nittany Lion hard hat.
