Extra-Curricular Programs with Global Focus

There are many opportunities outside the classroom for involvement, gaining some global exposure, and for learning about other cultures.

There are several international student groups, both in the College of Engineering and around the university, that allow students to gather together around an international and/or multicultural theme.

The international buddy program is in development. It will link incoming exchange students to Penn State engineering students to help make our international students feel more welcome and to give Penn State students a chance to interact with students from another culture.

The Study Abroad Representatives Program provides an opportunity for engineering students who have had an international experience to give back to the college and help encourage other students to pursue opportunities to internationalize their education.

There are activities and programs around the university and the College of Engineering which provide students with a chance to learn about other cultures, interact with students of similar interests, and to find out about various global opportunities.
