UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Registration is ongoing for We Are Weekend, to be held June 1-3 at Penn State's University Park campus, featuring plenty of fun, family activities, college events and a concert on the HUB lawn.

Below are five reasons why Penn Staters should attend We Are Weekend, and those who are interested can visit the Alumni Association’s website to register today. The full agenda is available online.

1. Concert/ice cream social on the HUB lawn

Join alumni and friends for a true Penn State tradition — Berkey Creamery ice cream — and spend an afternoon enjoying an outdoor concert. Bring a blanket or chair and reminisce about your college days.

2. Movie night at The Arboretum at Penn State

Watch "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" under the stars at one of the gems of the University Park campus. Round up your family and friends and enjoy the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise at this family-friendly evening event.

3. Dueling Lions Piano Bar

Request your favorite song, connect with friends and classmates, and make sure you have on your dancing shoes for some late-night fun at The Nittany Lion Inn. You might even hear some of your favorite Penn State fight songs.

4. College events

Experience the University through the eyes of a current student, with opportunities for walk-in hours and open houses within the colleges. Work on your golf swing, take a cooking lesson, or tour one of the state-of-the-art learning spaces on campus, among other options.

5. Commemorative photos at the Nittany Lion Shrine

Stop by the campus landmark for a complimentary photo taken by a professional photographer. You’ll be able to download the photo after We Are Weekend and share with your family and friends.

What did we miss? Visit the Facebook event and let the Alumni Association know what you’re looking forward to.
