Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

Academic Resources

Schreyer Scholars are bright, resourceful students but they still need help navigating the requirements of both Penn State and the Schreyer Honors College. They also need advice about how and where to take advantage of the numerous opportunities available to them, and more importantly, how to find what those opportunities are.

The Schreyer Honors College complements the University’s resources by providing additional staff and programs specifically to assist Schreyer Scholars. Resources include:

SHC Weekly Newsletter

The Schreyer Honors College sends a weekly e-newsletter to all Scholars that contains the following:

  • Schreyer Honors College academic announcements, deadlines and events
  • Career Development events, due dates and information sessions
  • Internship and research opportunities
  • Weekly features
  • Links to job listings and fellowship/scholarship opportunities
  • A link to our Interest Area Subscription page where Scholars can sign up to receive customized e-mail content directly related to areas they self-select (i.e. business, education, information technology, law, sports and recreation, etc.)

Honors Advising

Your honors adviser is your go-to person for your course selection process as you plan your academic path. We encourage you to contact your adviser with any questions, or ideas, you may have during your time as a Schreyer Scholar.
