Wiestling Student Center


Many people believe that Col. Wiestling's ghost still haunts Wiestling Hall. There are many eery tales of ghostly acts in the building over the past several decades!

At over 200 years old Wiestling Hall is a true piece of Penn State history. Built in 1807, Wiestling Hall is the oldest building in the Penn State system outside of University Park. It was named after Col. George Wiestling, the ironmaster who first lived in the house when the property was in use as an iron furnace.

The building currently serves as the student center on campus. It houses Cafe Java (a cyber cafe), a small stage area for coffee house night performances, a game room with a pool table and vending machines, the student government offices, and the student activities coordinator's office.
