First Year Student Modules

The three modules below were designed to help educate and prepare students for the new experiences, people, and environments they could be exposed to at college. Ideally, these modules will aid students in future decision-making or help them to better understand their peers. All incoming students, as members of the Penn State Altoona community, are expected to complete each of the three modules below before starting classes in August. Each module takes approximately 30-45 minutes to complete.
