Welcome to Penn State Behrend!
We know that being new to college can be an overwhelming experience, as you face meeting new people, adjusting to classes, and finding your way on campus—especially now, with the coronavirus pandemic requiring social distancing.
That’s why we created Belonging@Behrend, a special program for first-year students. It will connect you to other students, show you the people and services available to you, and most of all, help you become part of the Behrend community.
Belonging@Behrend takes place on two platforms: In Canvas, our learning management system, where you’ll get advice for a successful semester and connect with a peer mentoring group; and in BehrendSync, our student engagement system, where you’ll find ways to get involved in Behrend activities.
Please be sure to log into Canvas, find the Belonging@Behrend tile on your dashboard, and sign up for a mentoring group that fits your schedule.
The best part about Belonging@Behrend is that it is meant for all first-year students, whether you’re a commuter or you live on campus, and whether you have in-person classes or all remote learning.
There’s a place for you here—and Belonging@Behrend will help you find it.
