Penn State Harrisburg will hold a Graduation Fair on Tuesday, March 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Olmsted Building lobby on campus. Students graduating spring 2017 are invited to stop by and learn more about the commencement ceremony.

At the fair, students can:

  • Receive Legacy Cords. In honor of the college’s 50th anniversary, the Penn State Harrisburg Alumni Society provides legacy cords to graduating students whose parents and/or grandparents are Penn State Harrisburg graduates. Celebrate your graduation and recognize your family ties by wearing the gold, blue, and white cord. Students are requested to provide their parents’/grandparents’ names, year of graduation, and degree(s) earned.
