"Penn State's Board of Trustees was informed today (Sept. 20) of the installation of approximately 450 Internet protocol-based video surveillance cameras in 60 residence hall and commons buildings at the University Park campus. The cameras will monitor ground-floor entrance lobbies, exit stairwells, elevators and commons service desks.

'The safety and security of our residents is a top priority and we are excited to move ahead with this important project,' said Joel Weidner, director of information technology and marketing in the office of auxiliary and business services.

    This is from May 29th, 2020. It has pretty much been kept hush, hush. People will bash me for posting it telling everyone that I am a hater(when in fact....I am not...I just expect more from my flagship). I just thought it should be posted. People can decide whether they want to read it or not.

    As a "State Related" school....PSU is not required to disclose all info.
    Posting it one of Dave Berry's threads may help.

    Did Penn State learn anything from Sandusky scandal? NC woman’s suit raises questions
