Traditionally, Penn State has taken a focused group approach to their junior day events, which invited smaller groups to provide a more "personal approach" to the vists, as one program observer put it.

There are also indications that Pennsylvanian lineman Eric Shrive could make the trip although the event does conflict with the SAT.
