You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

State College


Sunday, Jul 29, 2007 from State College, Pennsylvania

Since starting at Michigan State in 2001 and becoming a bigger fan of Big Ten football each year, I have since wanted to go on a Big Ten campus tour, experiencing each university for a few days. I’m not too close to seeing them all yet, but I’ve made it to Penn State, the 5th Big Ten school I have seen, and the 11th school in the Big Ten for those of you who don’t know (yes, in the Big Ten we don’t know how to count, but personally I think it’s cool that they admitted an 11th team without changing the name).

Penn State is an awesome college and I think State College is a perfect college town, although I think the name is just a little strange. It’s a huge university in a pretty small town that’s just in the middle of the state. It’s a beautiful campus with great tradition. Of course the greatest tradition may be that of Joe Pa. It’s an amazing story, it truly is. I stood at the statue and was amazed looking at all the old seasons and how many perfect seasons he’s had with Penn State. Of course I had to stop at the Nittany Lion and the Creamery for some ice cream. And of course I had a great visit to the Palmer Art Museum where it was perfect timing for a visit to enjoy the Ansel Adams exhibit to view some of the most valuable photographs and most iconic photos in the world.

Among other great streets I have seen in the country such as Water Street in Savannah, Church Street in Burlington, Ocean Drive in Miami, Duval Street in Key West, and 6th Street in Austin. I could go on for a long time about the awesome streets across the country. It’d make a great book to photograph and document these classic streets. Even better is these streets in college towns, Grand River at Michigan State, State Street at the University of Wisconsin, and it’s College Street at Penn State.

Make sure you hit Ohio State when you get to Ohio, that way you are half way. When will you be in Alaska. We will be there Aug. 26-29.

Just a correction, College Avenue is the name of the street, not College Street. Hope you had fun :)
