Lion Ambassadors' 'Haunted Valley' ghost tours event rescheduled to Nov. 4

October 18, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — PLEASE NOTE: Due to tonight's anticipated inclement weather, Haunted Valley has been rescheduled to Friday, Nov. 4.

Penn State Lion Ambassadors will hold “Haunted Valley” ghost tours for the second time, walking students and the community through Penn State’s spooky past.

“Haunted Valley” will take place from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4 (please note new date), with tours departing from the Hintz Family Alumni Center. Penn State is believed to be one of the most haunted universities in the country, so Lion Ambassadors will be giving tours to tell the eerie stories of the University — just in time for the Halloween season.

Haunted Valley is free and open to the public. 

“We have always given tours about the historical figures of Penn State during ‘Lantern Tours,’ but ‘Haunted Valley’ brings a completely different element to the school’s past,” said Project Leader Alan Ludwikowski. “Many people don’t really know about the haunted side of Penn State, so this is a unique opportunity for students and the community to experience a side of the school that they haven’t experienced before.”

There will be free fall-themed food, including pies, cider and more; a photo booth; activities such as pumpkin painting and pumpkin bowling; and live music from the bluegrass band “The Nittany Mountain Trailways Band.”

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.
