Blue-White Weekend Notebook: What You Need to Know
It’s almost that time.
Thousands of Penn Staters will decorate Happy Valley in their best blue-and-white spirit gear. The roar of Beaver Stadium will send echoes all the way downtown. Penn State pride will fill the air as past, present, and future Nittany Lions celebrate their university.
Blue-White Weekend 2017 is upon us, and we’ve got the details on events leading up to and during the weekend to help make it the best one yet:
During Penn State’s IST Startup Week, which will take place April 17 through April 21, entrepreneurs and industry pioneers—including many Penn State alumni—from across the country will help students find their place and careers in the world of innovation. From guest speakers and networking opportunities, to hands-on competitions and workshops, Startup Week will appeal to those from a variety of educational backgrounds and career interests.
