Congratulations again and welcome! On behalf of myself, the Orientation Leaders (OLs), and the entire Penn State York community, We are very excited about your arrival on to campus! In preparation, we have designed many programs to aid you in your preparation for the upcoming academic year.

First-Year Engagement (FYE) is an array of opportunities for new students to become familiar with Penn State and specifically the Penn State York campus. Students will have the opportunity to learn about the University, campus policies and procedures, meet faculty, staff, and students, and discover more about academics, classes, co-curricular activities, and programs.

At Penn State York, the First-Year Engagement has two mandatory steps prior to the start of the academic year:

As you have already participated in New Student Orientation (NSO), Part I - Advising Component, we have created this page as a resource as you look ahead to New Student Orientation (NSO), Part II - Campus Life.

This page will help you prepare for the upcoming events that Penn State York has in store for you as you begin the next chapter of your education. In order to help guide you through this transition we have three separate areas for you to visit depending on who you are as well as the questions that you may have.

Should you have any questions regarding Orientation, please feel free to contact me at any time. Likewise, should you have any questions after attending Orientation, please know that my door is always open. Congratulations and welcome again to Penn State York.

We are Penn State!
