College of the Day: Penn State University

Exactly three hours north of Baltimore, in the very center of Pennsylvania, is a campus so large that two looped bus circuits are available to save students the 30-minute walk from the freshman dorms, past the college of agriculture, the college of Arts and Architecture and double libraries to the College of Engineering. As one would expect from one of the largest universities in the country, it boasts the largest student-run philanthropy in the world. This college taught Ben and Jerry how to make their ice cream and educated the creators of Avenue Q and the Ron Burgundy story, as well as WBAL's Jayne Miller. Penn State has a distinguished academic reputation that has always transcended football, and will continue to do so.
