Penn State officials are trying to determine whether a porn video was made in a Penn State classroom. Students believe the video may have been filmed in the Thomas Building. While the classroom’s podium has the Penn State logo on it, a logo in the movie is blurred. The video was uploaded to an adult film website but it has since been removed. Penn State spokeswoman Lisa Powers says Penn State was obviously not aware of the use of its classroom in this manner and the film was made without any official permission. Screenshots of the video have been shared with police, who will investigate to determine if any criminal activity is present in the film.
