Campus Ready to Showoff Birthday Makeover
DuBois – In celebration of its 75th birthday, Penn State DuBois has received a makeover that the campus administration is proud to showcase to the public. Community members are invited, anytime, to take a walk around campus and observe the enhanced environment.
"Penn State DuBois is really looking good at 75," said Chancellor Anita McDonald. "The university has invested in the function and appearance of our outdoor spaces in order to make the entire campus environment more pleasing and comfortable to students, faculty, staff, and our guests."
Those improvements include: new trees, shrubs, flowers and other vegetation. New outdoor furniture, planters, and fencing have also been installed. The campus event lawn, between the DuBois Educational Foundation (DEF) Building, and the Hiller Building received a complete overhaul. It now offers an open, modern green space for activities, and attractive sitting areas.
Community members are invited to get their first look at the campus makeover during the 75th Birthday Celebration from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., on July 17. Students, faculty, and staff will celebrate this milestone with live music, carnival games, food, a petting zoo, prizes, and much more.
"Our friends in DuBois and the surrounding communities are always welcome to visit our campus," said McDonald. "But at this time, we send a special invitation for everyone to come and see, for themselves, the many improvements to our campus environment."
