Not many students complain about the facilities available on campus. The HUB is the epicenter of campus, with study lounges, restaurants, auditoriums, and an art gallery. The IST Building on the west side of campus is the most tech-savvy place on campus. The Smeal Trading Room in the Business Building was the first of its kind in the country and displays real-time stock information. The athletic facilities are constantly being upgraded. Medlar Field at Lubrano Park is one of the top 10 college baseball stadiums in the country, and Beaver Stadium isn’t too bad either.
The presence of construction machinery is a reflection of Penn State’s continuing efforts to expand and keep itself up-to-date with other major universities. In the midst of a rural area, the University is an island of new technology and modern resources.
