Glunk Jr., of Williamsport, at Beaver Stadium before Saturday's game.Students in the School of Business & Hospitality’s Catering course were busy behind the scenes at Penn State’s annual All-University Day football game on Saturday as the Nittany Lions faced the Maryland Terrapins. The class gained valuable experience and industry exposure as they assisted Chef Ken Stout and the rest of the catering crew from The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel to help prepare and serve food for the skyboxes in Beaver Stadium, the second-largest stadium in the nation. The Penn Stater offers Penn College’s Catering class several hands-on experiences alongside its staff, including a presidential tailgate at the Schreyer House (the official residence of the Penn State president); the annual conference of the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture, which is held at the Penn Stater each spring; and an event at the university’s new Pegula Ice Arena.
