As a recent graduate of Penn State University and a resident of Erie, Penn., I decided to make the four-hour drive to Ann Arbor this weekend to watch my Nittany Lions. It was my first time traveling to a road game, and I must say that my trip to the University of Michigan set the bar extremely high for my future visits to other Big Ten campuses. The overall experience at your campus was simply outstanding. I did not exactly prepare the best for the trip, so I continually had to ask for directions. All of your fans and students were very helpful. The students along State Street were very welcoming and friendly, and even invited my friend and I inside for a bit. The downtown scene at night was more of the same, with Michigan fans congratulating us for finally winning in the Big House.
Although I was very pleased to see Penn State leave with a victory, I left Ann Arbor much more appreciative of the campus beauty, genuine friendliness and overall amazing atmosphere that your student body and fan base has created. I can only hope that anyone who travels to Happy Valley anytime in the future will have just as wonderful an experience.
