SCHUYLKILL HAVEN, Pa. -- Each spring, the Penn State Schuylkill campus becomes busy with awards ceremonies, honor society inductions, and student research presentations. And this year will only differ in one way: all of these events will be hosted online.

“Bringing the campus community together to recognize the great work of our students each spring is a high point of the academic year,” said Penn State Schuylkill Chancellor Patrick M. Jones. “I look forward to joining in these events and celebrating our students’ achievements.”

All of these events are publicly accessible, and all members of the Penn State Schuylkill community, including friends and family, are welcome to participate. Event information will continue to be updated here:
