Students are encouraged to join organizations related to their education and profession. HDFS majors may consider the HDFS Club, which focuses on promoting outreach efforts to community agencies and expanding the understanding of the Human Development and Family Studies major. The club provides education and opportunities for professional development in the HDFS field or any other service area of interest.
Students may also consider Pi Gamma Mu, an organization that recognizes scholastic achievement. Membership is given by invitation to students who have achieved at least a B average. The International Affairs Association promotes international and cross-cultural interaction through the sponsorship of activities such as the global pursuit tournament, fall international dinner and folk dance, and the Penn State Harrisburg Model United Nations Conference.
