Experience a behind-the-scenes look into the world of news and weather broadcasting at the CNN Center in Atlanta, and journey through the global headquarters of CNN, the largest of its 48 bureaus worldwide. Enjoy a seated dinner and hear from a panel of Penn Staters from The Weather Channel and CNN, who will tell you stories about their professional experiences, day-to-day work, and how they found their place in news and weather.

Alumni Networking Event
New York City
Saturday, May 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Climb aboard the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum with Charles Kupfer, who will travel back in time through the major events of World War II, lesser well-known aspects of the conflict, and changes in the way we remember it. This is a family-friendly discussion that will also explore the material culture of the war, in particular our ongoing fascination with World War II military hardware, especially ships and planes. Launched in 1943, the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid fought in World War II and was decommissioned in 1974. 

There is also an optional Alumni Career Services Networking Workshop for Veterans.



Virtual Networking Events

Online networking enables you to speed-network from wherever you are: home, office, library, even on the road. During the event, you will be paired with fellow Penn Staters for several 8-minute text-based chats that will allow you to make a connection, exchange contact information and build your network. We hope you’ll join us for this unique opportunity to connect with fellow Nittany Lions around the world.
