HAPPY VALLEY UNITED NIL COLLECTIVE
WHAT IS HAPPY VALLEY UNITED?
Happy Valley United is the official Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) collective for Penn State Athletics. The two largest NIL collectives supporting Penn State student-athletes, Lions Legacy Club and Success With Honor, have come together to create a clear direction for the Nittany Lion community. Happy Valley United will support 800 plus student-athletes in all 31 sports at Penn State.
WHY DID LIONS LEGACY CLUB AND SUCCESS WITH HONOR MERGE?
In a move heralded by Penn State Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Pat Kraft, the uniting of these two successful organizations is an imperative step to provide a large breadth of NIL opportunities for the world-class student-athletes attending Penn State.
