Spend A Summer Day

Virtual Open House
Aug 4 - Aug 14

Register Today!

Summer is different this year.
But Spend a Summer Day is still the perfect way to explore Penn State!

This virtual open house event for prospective students provides the opportunity to learn about admissions, student financial aid, academics, student activities, and housing and residence life at Penn State's twenty undergraduate campus locations. By talking with faculty, staff, and students you will develop a better understanding of what Penn State has to offer.

Our Commonwealth Campuses range in size from 800 students to 5,000 students and are located in equally beautiful urban and rural locations. Our university structure allows students to start at a Commonwealth Campus for the first two years before transitioning to their ending campus to finish their degree. We call this our 2+2 plan, and over 50 percent of our students earn their Penn State degree this way! The remaining students who do not participate in 2+2 begin and end at the same campus. This could be any Penn State campus as all locations offer a variety of four-year degree programs.

Penn State’s Commonwealth Campuses have so much to offer, and we think you will agree.

Reservations for virtual Spend a Summer Day are required, and events tend to fill quickly. Please make your plans and act soon.
