Best alumni gifts for Penn State graduates

This weekend, Penn State's 830,000 alumni will be getting a fresh infusion of graduates. While times have changed since the first twelve graduated in 1861, some things have stated the same. We want to mark commencement day with a memorable gift that will bring back memories of the day for years to come.

Here are some of our top picks.

It's impossible to be grumpy while checking out Penn State's archive of commencement pictures. Completely impossible.
