Student Life

From NCAA Division III athletics to student government to Penn State's renowned THON, Penn State Harrisburg offers students many opportunities to grow outside of the classroom, including nearly 90 clubs and organizations, intramural sports, and community service activities. We also provide a range of programs, services, and staff members focused on student health and safety, academic success, residential life, leadership development, and more.
