Take a Trip to Harrisburg on Penn State Capital Day

Penn State students are encouraged to take a road trip April 5 to Harrisburg, Pa., to join in the cause of “Penn State Capital Day,” a day when Penn State students, families and alumni will campaign together for support from legislators for Penn State’s appropriation.

The amount of state money Penn State receives directly affects tuition increases. Without continued strong support from the state, students and their families can expect to see higher tuition bills next year.

Students will join with alumni to have individual meetings with Pennsylvania senators, representatives and their staffers. They will convey the message that a strong state appropriation will

allow Penn State to continue its land-grant mission of providing quality, accessible higher education at affordable tuition rates for students and their families.

In addition to these meetings, Capital Day will also include a noon “Rally in the Rotunda” and ice cream social to show support for Penn State, its ongoing impact on Pennsylvania’s economy and its vital role in training future leaders. Hundreds of students are needed to pack the rotunda.

All Penn State students are welcome to participate in Capital Day. For more information or to register, visit

Capital Day is co-sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association’s Grassroots Network, an education and advocacy group supporting Penn State; the Council of Commonwealth Student Governments (CCSG), which represents Penn State students at the 19 undergraduate campuses beyond University Park; the University Park Undergraduate Association (UPUA); and the Graduate Student Association (GSA)
