The Involvement Fair is one of the best opportunities to get involved in campus life at Penn State. Student Organizations, like the Penn State Karate Club, set up displays and have members on site talk to visitors one on one about what their organization does on campus. Involvement in co-curricular experiences is one of the most important parts of having a successful college career! You will make friends, learn all about Penn State, and develop invaluable skills you will use in life beyond Penn State. There are over 1,000 student organizations to choose from.
