Here is what he said from his window (from the Daily Collegian).

“We’re always going to be Penn State, regardless of what happens to certain people. We’re Penn State. I’m proud of you.”

“I’ve always been proud of you. Cheer our football team on Saturday, alright? Beat Nebraska.”

He’s then moved to his front lawn.

Here’s what he said (via OnwardState):

“Joe on his front lawn: ‘I’m so happy to see you.'”

“Say a prayer for all of the victims and their families.” … “I thank the students for your support.”

“I live for this place. I live for people like you guys and girls.”
