Penn State’s Graduate and Professional School Week Kicks Off

Are you thinking about attending medical, law, or graduate school following your time at Penn State? Beginning today, the university will be hosting its annual graduate and professional school in Alumni Hall in the HUB.

Similar to the college fairs that most of us attended in high school, more than 250 schools from all around the country will be convening in the HUB to hand out application, admission, and curriculum information for potential students. Prestigious schools such as Columbia, Johns Hopkins, and George Washington will be in attendance, and the full list of schools can be viewed online.

Over the next three days, the fair will feature a different type of school for each specific day. It goes from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every day:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 21 – Graduate School Day
  • Wednesday, Oct. 22 – Medical and Health-Related School Day
  • Thursday, Oct. 23 – Law School Day

Penn State Career Services will hold workshops in Room 103 of the Bank of America Career Services Center for students looking at graduate schools. Starting at 4 p.m. everyday, students can attend selection workshops the day before their respective schools will be represented in the HUB.

No preregistration is required to attend the fair, and business casual attire is recommended. If you’re still deciding on whether to attend graduate school, this is an opportunity that you shouldn’t miss, as it will only help you in the decision-making process — or at least allow you to walk away with some free stuff.
