It’s likely the first moments you experienced at University Park were your first real moments of “freedom.” With the 2016 Freshmen class about to experience that same moment in the coming days, we asked Alpha Chi Brothers to recall their first memories of Penn State and Happy Valley.

“The first days at PSU were awesome. I was on my own and "free.” My first stop was the Penn State Berkey Creamery. I had a Peachy Paterno and it was awesome. Saw a concert at the Bryce Jordan center- it was Bush, and they rocked it!

Pledging Sigma Chi was a good experience. The Sigma Chi Fraternity really emphasizes unity and discipline, which I use every day now.

Also, last but not least, it was amazing hearing "We are ...Penn State" from everyone, especially from the students at Beaver stadium!”
