Eisenhower Auditorium

Eisenhower Auditorium is Penn State’s primary theatrical performance space. Opened in 1974 and later named for former University President Milton S. Eisenhower, the modern-style auditorium hosts almost 200 events each year. The auditorium serves everything from University commencements to Future Farmers of America conferences. The Nittany Valley Symphony is another leading user of the performance space.

FDA worked with Voith & Mactavish Architects to conduct an evaluation of existing infrastructure and technology and then implemented a series of upgrades to the facility, including replacement of the fire curtain, improvements to the lighting systems, and structural changes.
