Frequently Asked Questions:

Why is We Are Weekend virtual?

We Are Weekend traditionally reaches 500-plus registrants, with programming sprawled across the entire University Park campus and parts of downtown State College. The weekend involves our entire staff to help facilitate and oversee events, sessions, transportation, and other details that go into ensuring the weekend is a success for all Penn Staters who attend.

With the uncertainty of COVID-19, the anticipated large crowd, the need to mobilize our staff of nearly 100, and our commitment to the health and safety of our alumni, friends, and staff, we feel it was necessary to host this year’s We Are Weekend virtually.

How will I access the virtual events?

We will provide detailed information on how to access the virtual event platform in June.

When will the Alumni Association recognize the Class of 1970 and the Class of 1971 as Penn State Pioneers?

Both the Class of 1970 and the Class of 1971 will be inducted into the ranks of Penn State Pioneers virtually at a special event during We Are Weekend. However, both classes will also be invited back for We Are Weekend 2022 to reconnect with their classmates and celebrate in person!

What about the Class of 1972?

The Class of 1972 will celebrate their 50th reunion during We Are Weekend next year (June 17-18, 2022), with class representatives working with the Alumni Association on how best to recognize this special group of Penn Staters.

How can I contact my classmates?

When you register for We Are Weekend, you will have the opportunity to join the event attendee list. By joining the attendee list, you make yourself visible to other attendees and can contact each other from the attendee list page of the website. If you're not interested in having your name visible on the attendee list you do have the ability to opt-out of this feature.

When is We Are Weekend next year?
