What do Afghanistan, China, Peru, Syria, Bosnia, Pakistan, Venezuela, Croatia, Haiti, Poland, Egypt, all have in common? All of these countries and many more are the birthplace of a Penn State Lehigh Valley student or parent.

The Penn State Lehigh Valley Google Earth project, sponsored by the PLSV Library, plots countries of origin for our students, staff, and faculty on a virtual rotating globe. Begun in the fall of 2007, the program is an ongoing effort to present a visual image of the diversity represented here on campus.
