(BLOG.PENNLIVE) — Penn State students have renamed the encampment outside Beaver Stadium from “Paternoville” to “Nittanyville,” the Nittanyville Coordination Committee announced in a press release today.

“This is a decision undertaken by and made solely by the Penn State student officers,” said president Troy Weller, a Penn State senior.

“Our four major officers, plus our six organizational officers, met via conference call and after careful deliberation decided, by a vote, that moving forward the group will be named Nittanyville.”
