Incoming Penn State Schuylkill students have a new way to meet and connect with classmates, faculty and staff: the Fall 2020 Incoming Class group in LionConnect, the campus’s online hub for events and student groups.
Following a three-month comprehensive planning process, Penn State officials have determined that the University can meet or exceed the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s guidelines for colleges and universities, and look forward to welcoming back faculty, staff and students to resume on-campus, in-person classes and other activities this fall in a limited fashion.
With Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf’s announcement today (May 22) of additional counties moving to yellow phase over the next two weeks, students residing in those counties can now begin scheduling a move-out date from their on-campus residence halls. A number of Penn State campuses will also begin scheduling students for move out.
The Penn State alumni family grew by more than 15,000 this past weekend as the University recognized its spring 2020 graduates in a livestreamed commencement ceremony, which took place on Saturday, May 9.
Beginning this week, Penn State Schuylkill will host its spring awards ceremonies, honor society inductions, and student research presentations online. The events will be publicly accessible, and all members of the Penn State Schuylkill community, including friends and family, are welcome to participate.
