There’s no mistaking the prestige of Penn State’s athletics department: a quick Google search for the school’s notable alumni pulls up a slew of coaches, wide receivers, defensive ends and linebackers. While Pennsylvania State University maintains 23 additional campuses throughout its native Commonwealth (in places like Abington, Berks, and Harrisburg), its flagship location of University Park is in the appropriately named borough of State College.
