Major Spotlight Event Series

We are excited to announce our inaugural Major Spotlight Event Series. The series highlights a College of IST major, corresponding career paths, and professional opportunities. In Fall 2022, we will be piloting the series with the Cybersecurity Recruiting Day on October 12 and the Data Science Recruiting Day on October 13.

Students interested in pursuing career paths in these fields will be here to meet with your organization and learn about your open full-time and internship positions. Many of the student attendees will be pursuing degrees within the College of Information Sciences and Technology, but all Penn State students interested in these careers are welcome to attend.

Parking:

Visitor parking is available in the West Deck and the Nittany Parking Deck. Please note that there is ongoing construction on the west side of campus so plan extra time to park and walk to the Westgate Building (approximately 5-minute walk from each deck). Signs will guide you around the construction areas from the West Deck to the Westgate Building.

Upon entry into either deck, take a ticket. Please keep this ticket with you as you will need to pay before exiting the deck. Unfortunately, we are not able to validate parking for either deck. Parking rates are $1.00 per hour.

Boxes and materials may be shipped to the Westgate Building for arrival no earlier than the week before the event. Please email Brianne Lippert at bek147@psu.edu to provide details on the expected delivery date and number of boxes.
