    Nashville Penn Staters would like to acknowledge the recent flooding in Middle Tennessee and extend our sympathies to those who have lost so much.  To support communities across Middle Tennessee, our charitable focus this year will be Second Harvest Food Bank, the nation's leading domestic hunger-relief charity.  Our group will be participating in an event at the Second Harvest location in Nashville in September, and continuing our food drive at the annual holiday party in December.  

    We will post more information about the upcoming Second Harvest event as it becomes available.  In the meantime, if you would like to help:

    How the Nittany Lions are using the science of acoustics to help crank up home field crowd noise.

    BALTIMORE (ISNS) -- Loud stadiums help win games, and Penn State's Beaver Stadium is one of the loudest in college football. When its crowd roars at a visiting quarterback, his calls can only be heard from a foot and a half away.

    Next season, the university's athletic department will put into play a new strategy to make its field even louder thanks to a team of acoustic scientists. The goal is to send a deafening wall of sound at the opposing team's offensive line.
