To provide exceptional opportunities, advocacy and support for every student to become a responsible and open minded citizen
Student Affairs is dedicated to students' growth and development outside of the formal classroom. We create opportunities and experiences for students to challenge and broaden their individual perspective, to advance their personal and professional growth, to encourage healthy decision making, and to foster leadership characteristics. Our goal is to cultivate students who will positively contribute to a future role in the workforce and in society.
Adult students may have additional family and work responsibilities that some of our traditional aged students do not have. We provide an array of services to help support the adult student. Some of these include programming, an Adult Student Center and resources for adults.
Athletics and Fitness

Basic Needs Support
Students can face financial challenges or unexpected life events during their college careers. Nationally and at Penn State, food and housing insecurity is an increasing concern for many college students. We are here to help provide the resources you need to thrive and succeed, so you can focus on your goals and making the most of your time at the University.
If you are struggling to afford basic needs, such as food, housing, textbooks, clothing, or other household items, we are here for you. If you need help - or if you are uncertain about your needs - reach out to one of the many resources available on-campus or in the community.
