New Engagement App Aims To Bring Penn State Students Closer Together

Penn State’s Student Engagement Network has launched a new app that aims to get students more involved on campus.

The aptly-titled Penn State Engagement App received a major update to coincide with the start of the spring semester. The app, which is available at all of Penn State’s campuses, primarily promotes undergraduate student organizations and upcoming campus events. Users are also able to network with student and faculty leaders through the app’s messaging function. 

“Penn State students have a wealth of out-of-classroom opportunities within their reach, but they may not know how to find them,” said Michael Zeman, director of the Student Engagement Network, which led the app’s development. “The Engagement App is designed to help students identify and track experiences that align with their interests, so they can embark on a meaningful out-of-classroom journey to complement their in-class learning.” 

The university launched the app in partnership with Navengage, a software development company that specializes in higher education. Beginning January 18, Navengage will donate a total of $1,000 to a handful of student organizations.

The Student Engagement App is available to download for free on the App Store or Google Play. Students can use their existing login credentials to access the app.
