Beaver Stadium is one of the most iconic stadiums in college football, but it may look different soon for Penn State Football fans.
It was announced on Friday that Beaver Stadium, the home of Penn State Football, will undergo renovations in the coming years.
The announcement came in a press release from the school on Friday. University President Neeli Bendapudi had released this statement.
"After extensive research and consultation, renovation for Beaver Stadium is the direction we want to take as it is far more economical than a new build. In addition, it’s important to note that no part of this project will be funded by tuition, student fees or any educational budget."
Bendapudi is certainly correct that this route is more cost efficient. The cost of building a new stadium, tearing down Beaver Stadium and then turning the empty space into a parking lot/ intermural fields would be significantly more.
Moreover, there really isn’t much room for a new stadium considering how much the east section of campus has grown in the last few years.
With that said, here are what some of the changes coming to Beaver Stadium may include once the plan is finalized by the Board of Trustees.
