Welcome Week is dedicated to bringing you together with other new students to kick off your Penn State journey. The program helps prepare you for the academic challenges that lie ahead, while sharing resources to enhance your success as a new Penn State student. This program, which is required, will allow you to:
- Meet faculty, staff, and other students
- Learn more about campus life and prepare for the academic challenges and resources that lie ahead.
- Attend interactive workshops conducted by faculty and staff to learn about academic procedures, student responsibilities, electronic resources, campus support, and so much more!
This event also includes our Welcome Convocation, which formally welcomes you to Penn State and Penn State Greater Allegheny. You will be able to register for this student only event in VZO once you have selected your NSO date.
