The Pennsylvania State University-Schreyer Honors College

Schreyer Honors Orientation: SHO TIME

Three days and 300 new friends add up to a great start in the Schreyer Honors College.

During SHO TIME — Schreyer Honors Orientation — you will learn what it takes to succeed in the Schreyer Honors College while finding your way around campus and getting acquainted with new and returing Schreyer Scholars. We pack plenty of information, fun and activities into your first three days at Penn State and still give you time to unpack and make yourself at home.

SHO TIME for fall 2014 Scholars enrolling at University Park begins with move-in on Wednesday, August 20, and runs through Friday, August 22.

Look for more details and a schedule of events to be posted in late spring/early summer.
