Welcome Week

Celebrate your choice in becoming a Penn State student at Welcome Week!

Welcome Week occurs at the beginning of each semester and is full of activities to help you get to know your Penn State home.  We know that students who attend welcome events are more confident when they start classes because they meet new friends, explore academic and co-curricular opportunities, navigate campus, and learn Penn State traditions.

Many of the activities held during Welcome Week are required for all new students including first-year, change-of-campus, and transfer students; however you will have some choices, too.

  • Nittany Block Party
  • Late Night-Penn State
  • Residence Hall Events
  • Be a Part from the Start
  • President's New Student Convocation (for first-year students)
  • Campus Tours and Resources
  • College Dean's Meetings 
  • And, many more...
