Help fellow students enhance their learning experience.

The Student Engagement Network internship program was created to support the advancement of student engagement across the University, providing interns with the opportunity to serve as voices of engagement at Penn State. Applicants must be undergraduate students at Penn State University Park and be in good academic and conduct standing with the University. The internship program is open to students of all educational backgrounds, especially those interested in helping current and future students enhance their out-of-classroom learning.

Working at the Student Engagement Network allows me to connect students with opportunities and resources that they may otherwise overlook. I wouldn’t be the student or the person I am today without my Penn State experience, so I find great joy in helping others discover what the University has to offer and how it can shape their journey and overall experience.
