Whether you're starting your first semester at Penn State or are new to University Park after taking courses at another University or Penn State campus, we hope you'll join us at the IST Academic Welcome. Meet your classmates, faculty, staff; get your College of IST shirt; and enjoy some Berkey Creamery ice cream to get your time in IST off to a great start!
Of the nearly 1,000 student organizations across Penn State, some are specifically focused on the education, experiences, and community of IST students. The IST Involvement Fair is your chance to learn how you can get involved with the college's various student organizations and meet with students representatives from each group.
From 7-7:30 p.m., IST academic advisers will provide an overview of Entrance to Major and why it matters. At 7:30 p.m., advisers will review the Entrance to Major process and offer tips to help you make the transition from pre-major status. Come to either session or stay for the full hour!
What’s the difference between the Cybersecurity Analytics and Operations major and the Security and Risk Analysis major? What job can I get with a degree in Information Sciences and Technology? Do I need coding experience to enroll in the Human-Centered Design and Development major? Join IST Faculty and academic advisers to get answers to these questions and more at IST Major’s Night!
