Janitorial help was minimal in the early life of Penn State Behrend, so students took a class day off for the annual "Work Day" held every spring. Students were even asked to bring their own rakes, shovels and cleaning equipment.

The Glenhill Farmhouse now serves as the administrative building at Penn State Erie.
