Special Event Features


The Penn State Go Team and univeresity partners collaborate on special events in the Penn State Go app.  

Most events are a mobile companion to support the event which generally includes the schedule, maps, general information, social media and much more. Most events fall into three categories: special interest, exclusive events, and university events. 

Special Interest 

Special interest events include short one-time events or creating more awareness about a campus initiative. These events are generally relevant to a large population of the Penn State community. 

Exclusive Events 

Exclusive events are events that have a defined start and end date and are generally reoccurring. These events are only relevant to a specific audience of the Penn State community. 

ExampleCommencement and move-in are major reoccurring events at Penn State.  

University Events 

University events are events that have a defined start and end date and are relevant to most or all of the Penn State community. Significant university events include but are not limited to Homecoming and THON.
