University Park to launch Leadership and Service Special Living Option fall 2016

February 19, 2016

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — New students at University Park can now select the Leadership and Service Special Living Option (SLO) located in Pollock Halls. This living and learning environment will engage first- and second-year students in an experience that will empower them to create positive change in the world.

Students will be enrolled in a special section of CAS 250 – Small Group Communication, and participate in various community service and leadership development activities throughout the year.

The Leadership and Service SLO will offer students leadership and community building training in order to make Penn State feel smaller while living with fellow students that hold similar values.

No previous experience is required to become a member of the SLO, though students involved in sports teams,student government, community service, or national honor societies should especially consider being involved. The SLO will help all students develop the leadership skills needed for positive involvement on campus and make well-thought out choices about their co-curricular experience.

To select into this environment, students need to preference the Leadership and Service SLO on their housing contract. For more information, please contact or call the Office of Student Activities at 814-863-4624.

The Leadership and Service SLO is open to any major — even if you are undecided, and is designed to complement any major or degree program.
