Life@State is a special visit opportunity for prospective high school students who wish to shadow a current Penn State student. This program is most beneficial for students with a clear academic interest area or decided program of study. Life@State participants will attend classes with their student mentors and 1-2 other prospective students with similar interests, get a feel for life outside the classroom, and enjoy lunch at a dining commons. Parents will also have an info session, presentation with the Parents Program, and an optional tour or free time to explore campus. Experience Penn State life firsthand with Life@State!
