Penn State surveying fans for ideas on stadiums, facilities

The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State is asking fans for ideas on how to improve Beaver Stadium and other facilities.

The plan to renovate Penn State's Beaver Stadium could cost more than $485 million.

The survey is part of the school’s ongoing review of its facilities’ master plan.

The online survey is being distributed to thousands of season ticket holders, students, alumni and others.

Athletic director Sandy Barbour last year says she’s rather renovate the 107,000-seat football stadium rather than build a new one.

Beaver Stadium is the second-largest college football venue and the third-largest stadium in the world. But university officials said they’ve received complaints for years that the building was overcrowded.
