Here’s what it said:

Located in the heart of central Pennsylvania, State College, PA, is home to Penn State University’s flagship campus. With nearly 46,000 undergrads, the university literally doubles the size of State College and provides access to the many amenities tied to a world-class academic institution. As a result, the city enjoys a diversified economy powered by an able workforce, a vibrant arts scene, an eclectic array of restaurants, a robust public school system and plenty of parks. This community is also great for raising a family, thanks to fun children’s activities like the Childhood’s Gate Children’s Garden at Penn State’s 395-acre arboretum.

Known colloquially as Happy Valley, it’s no wonder State College has been named one of the best places to live in the Northeast. On crisp fall Saturdays, as nearly 107,000 cheering fans fill the seats in Beaver Stadium, the valley moves the needle from happy to downright joyous whenever the beloved Nittany Lions score a win.
