Change-of-Campus Fall 2017 Programming

We are excited to have you join us at University Park!
 
We know, from talking to other students who changed campuses, that it is an exciting time, but one that can also be stressful and at times overwhelming.  Our office has developed a series of programs and events that are aimed to assist you in your academic and social transition to UP.  See the schedule below for programming opportunities created just for you!
