Upcoming Welcome Week Events

Welcome Programs is a collaborative effort between many departments and offices across the University Park campus, designed to welcome new and returning students to campus at the start of the semester. Funded in part by your student-initiated fees via the University Park Student Fee Board, these events are open to all current students (new and returning, graduate and undergraduate) and come at no additional cost.

Explore the full list of upcoming Spring Welcome events below. We are continuously adding more events to our program lineup, so continue to check back as more events are added throughout the weeks ahead leading up to Spring Welcome.

Penn State encourages persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and activities. If you anticipate needing any type of accommodation or have questions about the access provided, please contact Ben Giuliana, Assistant Director for Welcome Programs at welcome@psu.edu or call (814) 865-4178 at least two weeks prior to the start of the program to allow sufficient time to effectively meet your access needs.

Interested in having your event on the Welcome Programs calendar? Student organizations and campus departments can submit events here for review.
