Professionalism at the Graduate Exhibition

As a celebration of the best of Penn State, the Graduate Exhibition is a showcase for our graduate activities and us as a community. We encourage all participants to recognize the value of making their work accessible and useful to all who attend. Helping these visitors to understand the excitement we feel for our work is an important component of the Graduate Exhibition. Additionally, many members of the Penn State community and beyond devote great amounts of their time to make the Exhibition a success.
