Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

Host a Recruitment Event

Prospective students and their families usually come to Penn State to visit the Schreyer Honors College — but sometimes the SHC comes to them.

The Honors College holds events away from campus for prospective students throughout the year to bring Penn State and the SHC a little closer to home. Parents, alumni or friends can join with the college in hosting these events.


  • Help SHC staff identify restaurants, country clubs, or other venues for the event
  • Open up your home for a smaller event
  • Speak at the event about the experiences you've had with the SHC if you would be willing to share your perspective

Offer Receptions (March/April)

These events invite high school seniors who have been offered admission for the upcoming fall to meet with the SHC staff and others without having to make the trip to University Park. Your commitment is to host the event at your home or a location of your choosing, and share your perspective on the SHC experience to these future students and their parents.


If you are interested in hosting either of these types of events, please contact:
