There could be a mention of the mule Coaley, who carried the limestone used to build Old Main. Furthermore, the bones of Coaley still rest on campus in one of the Ag Hill buildings.
- Do you have a reference for that? I've never heard of that, and I've been studying at PSU for a few years now. --Spangineer (háblame) 02:16, 14 October 2005 (UTC)
- No, but I've seen Coaly's (I spelled it wrong before) bones with my own eyes. There use to be a little coffee shop in the HUB called Coaly's Cafe after the mule. Anyway, I found this article: Coaly and the Sesquicentenial. Apparently, the bones are now in the HUB somewhere.
- Last year the bones were on display on the upper floor of the HUB, along with the story.--Joe 18:03, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
- The bones are in the HUB, near the HUB auditorium under the wall-mounted television last I checked. That Coaly story is told to visitors who take the Old Main bell tour, along with a story that talks about how pranksters used to carry the mule up the steps to the towers. It could use a reference though. --Jtalledo (talk) 18:20, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
