HUB Student Engagement Space Opening Monday

The Student Engagement Space in the HUB (where Higher Grounds used to be) will officially open to the public on Monday as the first major initiative of the new Student Engagement Network. At the Engagement Space, student interns will help other students who visit find opportunities to increase their engagement and broaden their learning experiences.

According to a press release on the Engagement Space launch, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members will be requested to offer their input and feedback in an online survey to help build and develop the functions of the Space.

The Student Engagement Network as a whole encourages Penn State students to discover new ways to engage and participate, network with others, and use their passions to solve broader issues. The goals of the Network align with Penn State President Eric Barron’s university-wide educational goals, directing more attention to positively affecting students’ intellectual, personal, and social development.

“Research has shown that engaged students are healthier, happier and primed for success. The Student Engagement Network will help ensure that all of our students have the opportunity to learn and grow through a variety of out-of-classroom experiences,” Barron said in the release.

The Engagement Space will open for the first time at the HUB on Monday, October 9 — it’ll be open to the public from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

That potential lies as much in the hands of active, informed, and opinionated students as it does in those of the profit-driven athletic departments.
