What is Connect?
Connect is Penn State Altoona's platform to empower students to discover opportunities and take charge of their own co-curricular journey with an intuitive hub of interest-based engagement experiences. Through Connect, you can join organizations, see upcoming events, and get connected to other campus resources! All Penn State Altoona recognized student organizations are housed on this platform for you to explore as well as several student-service based departments.
You can access Connect using your Penn State email. All current Penn State Altoona students have access. The first time you sign in you will be prompted to complete a series of questions and then will be able to explore and manage your profile, then start getting connected!
