Special appearances will be made throughout the broadcast, with community leaders , athletic coaches, the Blue Band, and several student clubs and organizations all taking part in the welcome back event.

With the event going virtual this semester, all Penn Staters, not just first-year students are invited to join and enjoy ‘Be A Part From The Start.’
