Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

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 returning 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 2019 Scholars enrolling at University Park begins with move-in on Wednesday, August 21, and runs through Friday, August 23.

Scheduling Conflicts

First-year Schreyer Scholars are encouraged to attend all planned activities for SHO TIME. We recognize, however, that some students will be asked to participate in other orientation programs or may be auditioning for the Penn State Blue Band. Please notify us as soon as possible if another University-sponsored program conflicts with your participation in SHO TIME.

New Student Orientation for Schreyer Scholars

All incoming first-year Schreyer Scholars must attend New Student Orientation (NSO) prior to starting classes at University Park.
