Plan to visit Penn State Beaver during our Athletics Spirit Weekend, February 7-9, to meet coaches and players and find out about our outstanding athletic and academic programs. This is a great opportunity to learn what it’s like to be a student athlete at Penn State Beaver.
You and your family are invited to join us for this free, three-day program beginning Friday, February 7. Meet with our coaches, discuss academics with our faculty, and have dinner with current student athletes. Join us for a pool party at one of our host hotels, Home2 Suites by Hilton, following dinner.
On Saturday, February 8, join us for presentations on athletics, admissions “next steps,” on-campus housing, and financial aid. You’ll have VIP seating at our men’s basketball game and will be our invited guests at a private dinner with Penn State Beaver alumni athletes before our annual athletic awards and hall-of-honor induction ceremony.
An athlete send-off will occur on Sunday, February 9, at our host hotels, Home2 Suites by Hilton and the adjacent Hilton Garden Inn. Complimentary breakfast will be provided by the host hotels.
The program is FREE for prospective student athletes and their immediate families.
