CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — Penn State Lehigh Valley Office of Student Affairs planned a week for the campus community to keep calm and relax. 

Each day during “Keep Calm and Carry On” week, different activities took place for students to participate in. On Dec. 5, students were invited to “Lego their stress” at the campus bookstore with coloring, Legos and snacks.  During the day on Dec. 6 students could create their own emoji mug, as well as enjoy a movie night co-hosted by Blue and White Society.  

Students had free range on creativity and design standards using the famous text icons. Each mug featured a Penn State Lehigh Valley saying on one side and an emoji of their choice on the opposite.  Students were able to choose from one of nineteen different icons.
