Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Admissions to Penn State


LionsROAR is the name we use to describe our outreach to accepted students. It is a way for our alumni volunteers to welcome newly accepted students into the Penn State family, congratulate them on their offer of admission, be a resource for quick questions, offer students the chance to connect with proud Penn Staters, and demonstrate that a large university can still be personable. In past years, this was organized through a portal where each alum would log in and see a list of students' names, emails, and phone numbers from schools around their area. Each alum would then reach out via phone or email to welcome and congratulate the student on their Penn State offer. You would then update that portal to show if the student responded or if the attempt was made. We have also done this outreach via handwritten postcards in the past. This provided an even more personalized touch for our accepted students. We think LionsROAR is vitally important to the success of yielding students to say yes to Penn State!
