Free and open to the public, “Haunted Valley” will take place from 7:30-9:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Hintz Family Alumni Center and University House. Lion Ambassadors will explore the haunted history of Penn State and State College with ghost tours around campus and downtown, leaving from the Hintz Family Alumni Center. There also will be a haunted house in the historic University House, home of 11 Penn State presidents and the oldest structure on campus.

“Haunted Valley is a fun-filled spooky event that is fun for the entire family,” said Lion Ambassadors Committee Director Eric Bilbrough. “We are excited to offer a look at some of the forgotten haunted past of this school and town. It’s a perfect event for the entire family, especially on family weekend!”
