New students can explore University Park and enter to win prizes!

Learn about Penn State and the College of Health and Human Development

The first few days and weeks being on-campus can be overwhelming and we want to help you learn about campus and some of the resources available to you. Attend as many of the following events or participate in the activities to earn a Passport stamp.

Get your Passport at the Dean’s Welcome Meeting on June 29 and get ready to take flight! For those of you who are remote this summer, your Passport will be emailed to your Penn State email. Remote students can still win LionCash and earn up to 8 stamps, however, not all Passport events have a remote option.  Students living on campus or in the State College area should plan to attend events in person in order to receive stamps and win LionCash!

Prizes: 

  • Earn 12 stamps to win $50 in LionCash. 
  • Earn 8-10 stamps to win $25 in LionCash. 
  • Earn 4-7 stamps to win $10 in LionCash. 

Obtaining stamps: For every designated Passport location or event, you will receive a stamp to place on your Passport. Some stamps can be acquired through accomplishing tasks and are not time specific while others require your attendance at a specific date, time, and location.

Lost Passport: If you lose your Passport, a new one may be obtained in 9 Henderson; however, stamps are non-transferrable.

Deadline: Turn in your Passport to Assistant Dean, Megan Owens in 9 Henderson by Wednesday, August 11, 2021.
