Commonwealth engineers STEP-UP
Each year students participate in STEP-UP, a transition program that targets minority students at commonwealth campuses. The event lasts the entire weekend and includes workshops filled with information that will ease students' transition to the University Park campus. Students get a chance to create a network before they actually arrive on the campus. The event is a collaboration between Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE), Society of Women Engineers (SWE), and National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
