Introducing University Park (UP)
You can anticipate that Penn State at University Park will have a different atmosphere than the campus you've been attending. There are scores of buildings on campus and about 42,000 students and 2,000 faculty members. But don't let these numbers overwhelm you! After you arrive you will begin to feel comfortable as you get to know people in your classes, on your residence hall floor, in your apartment building, and in the groups you join. By participating in the available programs for new transfer students, you will not only gain a better appreciation for this once in a lifetime opportunity, but you will also learn to find your way around campus, and discover new facilities and resources for your use. Try to learn as much as you can about the system so you can make it work for you.
