We are happy to welcome you to Pennsylvania College of Technology. Because we want your experience to be a positive one, we have developed several programs to help you prepare for life as a college student.
Connections is an orientation program designed to help you (all new students, including transfer and non-traditional) and your parents get ready for college. This is a required program held prior to your first semester at Penn College. For students beginning in August, Connections is a two-day program held during the summer. For students beginning in January, Connections and Welcome Weekend are combined into one event the weekend prior to classes starting.
Welcome Weekend is held the weekend prior to the start of classes in August. You will move into your on- and off-campus housing, participate in academic and social activities, and be introduced to current Penn College student leaders, faculty and staff.
Welcome Back Weekend
Welcome Back Weekend for returning students is held the weekend prior to classes starting. You will move into your on- or off-campus housing, reconnect with old friends, meet new friends, take care of last-minute details, and much more!
