Are you headed to Penn State this fall for your first year of college and reside in Philadelphia or the surrounding counties (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, or Montgomery)? If so, we want to invite you and your parents to our annual First Year Sendoff, co-hosted by the Penn State alumni association chapters of Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County, and Montgomery County, and Philadelphia. It takes place on Sunday, August 8th from 10:00AM to 12:30 PM. This is a free event for all incoming first year students to any of Penn State's 20 campuses and their families.

This year's event will be held virtually via Zoom.  A tentative agenda is included below:
