World Campus Connects is a new series of online, streaming events we're offering to World Campus students. Each event will feature a guest connected to Penn State who will sit down to answer questions and talk with World Campus students.
At our online events, World Campus students will have the opportunity to interact with Penn State faculty and staff, as well as other students. To facilitate the online nature of the series, some students will attend the events via Google+ Hangouts, a live, multi-person video chat.
