Undergraduate Admissions prepares for 'Spend a Summer Day'

May 30, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The beginning of May is important to Penn State in many ways. It marks the end of classes, features a busy graduation weekend, and welcomes the newest group of Penn Staters, the class of 2022, who plan to enroll as first-year students in the upcoming summer or fall.

And while May 1 was the all-important date for these first-year students, their Penn State journey began the prior fall, when they submitted applications for admission to Penn State. For the next eight months, the Undergraduate Admissions Office reviewed over 80,000 applications, hosted hundreds of information sessions, gave tours to thousands of visitors and continuously communicated with interested students to enroll an outstanding class across Penn State’s 20 undergraduate campuses.

Now, as the over 16,000 members of Penn State’s Class of 2022 begin New Student Orientation, the Undergraduate Admissions Office is looking forward to recruiting the Class of 2023.

For many students, the summer months before their senior year of high school are a time to visit the top picks on their college list. Penn State offers visit programs to prospective students throughout the summer, with Spend a Summer Day providing the best opportunity to explore Penn State’s academics, student life and campus communities. Visit sasd.psu.edu for more information.

Spend a Summer Day at University Park will take place on July 20, 23, 26, 27 and 30, allowing prospective students and their guests to explore academic programs, connect with important University resources, interact with current students, advisers and faculty and take a walking tour of campus. These full-day, open-house events help prepare future classes of Penn Staters to apply to the University, while introducing them to the endless opportunities a Penn State education can provide.

To help make Spend a Summer Day and other summer visits at University Park as impactful as possible for prospective students, the Undergraduate Admissions Office is looking for current students to share their Penn State pride and provide campus tours to visitors.

And, to make sure we are as welcoming to future classes as we have been to the Class of 2022 — be sure to give a “We Are!” as you see visitors touring campus this summer.
