2022 Annual Student Sendoff & bbq

Please join us at Cabin John Park on August 7 as we welcome the newest group of Nittany Lions as they join the Penn State Family

The day will include food, drinks, games, giveaways and more!


During the picnic, we will host a session where freshman can chat with current students to find out all there is to know about campus life. We will also have a special session for parents to speak with current student parents to ask all the important questions.


The event is free of charge. Please kindly register so we can ensure there is enough food and drink: Student/Family Registration
