If you are wondering exactly what capital day is, I think the CCSG website explains it best, “Penn State students will bring together alumni and student advocates for Penn State in a series of visits with state legislators, culminating with a “Rally in the Rotunda” that will bring together students, alumni, and friends of Penn State on the Capitol rotunda steps in a message of solidarity and support for a greater state appropriation.
The goal of Capital Day is to deliver a message that continued government support for Penn State is critical to maintain the University’s strength, keep a Penn State education affordable, and sustain Penn State’s positive influence throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.”
