News & Events


We are reaching out to you from the Penn State SI’s Sustainability Experience Center (SEC) to share an opportunity for your students! We are in the process of forming a new club focused specifically on our site itself called the SEC Collective.

The mission of the club will be to engage students to explore the use of the site through programs, events, and activities. Members will also provide tours of the site, and they will further develop the site through workdays, and art/ scientific research projects. We intend to host many community events such as sustainability workshops, dinners, outdoor movie nights, site workdays, and our flagship event will be an eco-tailgate for the 2022 Blue & White game all at the SEC.

Interested students can scan the QR code in the attached flyer!

Best regards,
