Spend a Summer Day: July 2019

Spend a Summer Day is the perfect way to explore Penn State University Park! This campus open house event for prospective first-year students provides the opportunity to learn about admissions, student financial aid, academics, student activities, and housing and residence life at Penn State. By talking with faculty, staff, students, and alumni, you will develop a better understanding of what Penn State has to offer.

Spend a Summer Day visitors can explore the University Park campus by attending numerous academic sessions, for which you can register below. In addition to the academic sessions, visitors can also attend:

  • An Information Fair featuring student clubs, activities, and student support offices.
  • A Resource Fair in the Hetzel Union Building (HUB) with representatives from Undergraduate Admissions, the Office of Student Aid, Housing and Food Services and more.
  • Campus tours, which will depart continuously from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. from the HUB.

Other Visit Options

In the summer months, due to lack of student tour guides and the schedule of our advising and program coordinators, we do not offer the same level of visit/tour that we do during the academic year.

If you are a prospective student interested in scheduling a visit during the summer, please contact us for more information.

Group Visits

For organized groups of 10 or more students, please fill out the Group Visit Form. The maximum group size is 40 students.

Schedule a Penn State Admissions Visit

While you are on campus, be sure to meet with the Penn State Admissions team. You can participate in morning or afternoon sessions to learn more about the University, financial aid, housing and the admissions process. A walking tour of the campus is also provided. Visit the Penn State Undergraduate Admissions Office website to schedule this tour. Note that this is separate from the College of Agricultural Sciences visit and tour.
