Gnoza Knows It | Are more fans flocking to Penn State?
STATE COLLEGE, Pa —
I wanted to know if more people are interested in going to Penn State when the football team is doing well.
Now Penn State had a great year last year and expectations are very high for this year.
So I emailed the University's Communications Department to pose that question to them.
A spokesperson said that University Park campus had a record number of first-year applicants. They went on to say that indicates an interest in the depth and breadth of the Penn State educational experience.
That may be true, but I also feel that youngsters who watched that Big 10 title game and the Rose Bowl may have gotten caught up in the excitement.
And I say there's nothing wrong with that!
I dreamed of going to Notre Dame as a kid, right about when I started following their football team.
