Penn State University
Additional Information About Penn State University
Football games, frat life, binge drinking—the iconic college experience, right? With an undergraduate population of almost 50,000, a thriving fraternity system, and a nationally-ranked football team, it’s no surprise that Penn State is one of the many universities with a powerful drinking culture. PSU students even created a new drinking holiday called “State Patty’s Day” in 2007, when Saint Patrick’s Day fell during spring break and students still wanted to celebrate (i.e. drink) at school with friends. It continues to be celebrated today, and even attracts students from other states.
