The bad news is that faculty, students, staff, alumni and their family members at Penn State Worthington Scranton can't all make it to South Bend, Indiana this Saturday to cheer on the fabled Nittany Lions as they battle the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame. The good news is they won't have to. The campus community is having an honest to goodness Tailgate Party in the school's Multipurpose Building starting at Noon.
Penn State Worthington Scranton's Assistant Director of Student Activities, Leon John explained that the day starts with a Powder Puff Football game and will include pick-up flag football, Frisbee and a potpourri of other activities. "We'll have something for everyone," he explained. That something includes barbequed bratwurst, hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, desserts and drinks served from 1:00 p.m. until kickoff.
Penn State attendees can settle in for the 3:30 p.m. kickoff and enjoy the game on a 10 foot screen television. The event is for alumni and members of the campus family and their immediate family members. No alcohol is allowed.
