Students Transitioning From Other Penn State Campuses

Undergraduate students who are transitioning to University Park from other Penn State campuses face some special challenges compared with students who started their academic careers at UP, including unfamiliarity with the campus and available resources and lack of a social support network.

Students from small campuses in particular may have lacked access to career advising and support, career events (fairs, networking events, information sessions, etc.), and student organizations that offer professional networking opportunities.
