Upcoming Events



This years LION Walk took place on Tuesday, August 23, 2016.

During the walk, small groups of students, police officers, and senior university and borough officials walk door to door. The groups walk through neighborhoods where there is a mix of student and permanent residents to distribute information. The information provided is designed to encourage both student and permanent residents to be good neighbors and build better neighborhoods.

The LION Walk hopes to unite student, government, and Penn State leadership in order to promote a greater sense of community and connection.
