August 09, 2021

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State Go mobile app, launched in January 2020, has introduced a parent and family-specific experience for University Park families. Families of Penn State University Park students can download the app in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store and customize their experience by selecting "Change App Experience" and "Parents and Families."

Penn State Go, the official mobile app for Penn State, provides the Penn State community with a custom platform to access and manage University accounts, view resources, and follow special events. In addition, users can opt-in to receive push messages to stay up to date with important information.

The parents and families experience provides access to features, such as the "Parent and Family Experience" portal, LionPATH, LionCash+ Deposit, Penn State Maps, Dining, Penn State News, Penn State Athletics and more. Families will find quick links to key University resources as well as links to the Penn State Parents Program website and social media accounts.

“We are thrilled to have partnered with Penn State Go and the Parents Council to develop a mobile app experience that aims to meet the needs of our parents and families. Penn State Go complements our existing communications and provides an additional way for families to connect to the University,” said Cyndy Hill, director of the Penn State Parents Program.

This fall, the parents and families experience will provide access to Parents and Families Weekend at University Park, scheduled for Oct. 8-10, including event schedules and to receive push and banner messages.

The Penn State Parents Program worked with members of the Parents Council to develop the content for the parent and families experience within the app. The content will continue to evolve based on feedback from users. Visit the Penn State Go website to download the app.
