Extended Orientation

Our Extended Orientation programming is designed to build on the foundational messages delivered during your virtual New Student Orientation. This includes programming focused on alcohol and drug use and abuse; sexual assault prevention and response; and diversity, equity and inclusion. Throughout the weekend, we will help you explore campus, re-introduce you to the classroom environment, connect with other students, and learn about life in State College.

Extended Orientation is required for all new first-year students starting at University Park in Spring 2022. You will participate in your two-hour Extended Orientation during the weekend of your arrival on campus. You'll be able to select your exact session on your NSO Tasklist after attending virtual NSO.
