Lion Ambassadors to host 'Haunted Valley' ghost tours

April 07, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Penn State Lion Ambassadors will host a spooky ghost tour through Penn State’s University Park campus at the first "Haunted Valley” on Friday.

The “Haunted Valley” ghost tours will take place from 6:30-8:30 p.m. on Friday, April 8, beginning at the Hintz Family Alumni Center. Lion Ambassadors will guide students through tales of Penn State's eerie past, enlightening attendees with legends of haunted areas on campus, and the ghosts that inhabit them.

“Every year, we have people reaching out to us asking if we will be giving ‘night tours’ around campus in the spring, similar to the Lantern Tours that we have in the fall,” said Jerry Bannon, executive vice president of Lion Ambassadors. “With that in mind, we decided it was time to take this idea and make it a reality. We are very excited to start this new project, and we can't wait to have everyone join us.”

Similar to Lantern Tours, there will be free food, activities, and various student performance groups to provide entertainment. “Haunted Valley” is free and open to the public.  

The Penn State Lion Ambassadors are the student alumni corps of the Penn State Alumni Association who aim to communicate the University’s history, personality and traditions to students, alumni and friends through tours and programming. Founded in 1982, the Lion Ambassadors serve as an important facet of student outreach for the Alumni Association.
