Penn State Behrend Parents, Families & Alumni Weekend

We look forward to seeing you again!

Parents, Families & Alumni Weekend is one of the highlights of the fall semester at Penn State Behrend. Each fall, we look forward to inviting parents, families, and alumni to campus for a weekend of activities and fun. 

There is a lot to celebrate at Penn State Behrend: a beautiful campus, talented faculty who foster academic excellence, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, the opportunity to develop close, lasting friendships, and much more. Events will follow any safety guidelines that may still be in place.
