Support Penn State Student Activities

Help support the future of the residential construction industry! Each year, students at Penn State University participate in various activities related to the housing industry, including the NAHB Student Competition held at the International Builders Show. The Penn State National Association of Home Builders Student Chapter and Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Design Challenge team actively recruit enthusiastic students looking to enter the housing industry through guest speakers and site visits. These students would benefit from your financial contributions to help make these activities and their experience with the housing industry more successful. During the registration process, there will be an opportunity to contribute to these student activities.
