We hope you had a wonderful journey to State College and are super excited to start a new chapter of your life at Penn State! 

 

Most of the information we provide on our website will overlap with the International Student Orientation organized by the Directorate of International Student and Scholar Advising (DISSA), but it's never a bad idea to get a head-start!

 

We have some recommendations on that we hope you will find useful...

Getting a US Phone Number

Opening a bank account

Commuting within State College

Groceries and Food

Utilities

 

Also, do look through our list of Useful Cell phone Apps. We are sure you will find this useful when you arrive.

 

If you have a more specific question that is not answered by our website, please don't hesitate to contact us.

 

And remember...

 

We. Are. Penn. State!
