With over 70 events, there is truly something for everyone. We will begin posting events in August and will continue to add events throughout the fall.

Here's a sneak peek at a few events:

  • Join us for the Ice Cream Social on Friday evening, Welcome Breakfast Reception on Saturday morning, and the Football Game Watch Party on Saturday.  
  • On Sunday, we will open the gates at Beaver Stadium for a peek and photo opportunity. 
  • There will be a professional photographer available at the Lion Shrine on Saturday and Sunday. 

In addition, there will be special tours including Old Main and Beaver Stadium (tickets are limited for this event), housing sessions, student performances, academic events, and more are hosted throughout the weekend. There will also be varsity athletic competitions and theater performances. You will see Penn State students' incredible talent and skills at almost every event hosted during the weekend.

The schedule is subject to change.
