Freshman Scholars Event Schedule
Wednesday, August 22 - Friday, August 24
Please check this site on a regular basis as we continue to confirm times and locations of programs and activities for your arrival and orientation.
Arrival conflicts: Freshman Scholars are encouraged to attend all planned activities for SHO TIME 2012. We recognize, however, that some students will be asked to participate in other orientation programs or may be auditioning for Penn State Blue Band. Please notify us at email@example.com if another University-sponsored conflict with your participation in SHO TIME.
Dietary restrictions: Several SHO TIME events may be catered by University-approved vendors. Schreyer Scholars are asked to notify the Schreyer Honors College at firstname.lastname@example.org of any special dietary restrictions or allergies by August 1.
African Library Project: The African Library Project changes lives book by book by starting libraries in rural Africa. Penn State's African Library Project was formed and officially recognized as a group last fall. Since then, the students have collected more than 4,000 books to be donated to several countries in Africa.
