Presented by auxiliary service professionals near you.
On the Road with NACAS East sessions are specially designed by industry peers and occur throughout the region within a two or three-hour drive from your campus.

On the Road makes it easy for you to network with and learn from professionals in your region. The cost is free. The experience is priceless.
Best Practices at Penn State
Penn State has planned an exciting program to share best practices and to tour its University Park facilities. Inspect innovative solutions such as Personalize It at the mail, print, and copy building, which operates 24 hours and serves 24 campuses. Enjoy the aroma of fresh-baked goods that will be shipped across the Commonwealth as you walk through the bakery and warehouse. Tour Pure, a kosher and allergy-friendly dining station, and order up at the largest newly renovated dining facility. Walk the halls of the recently built residence hall with private bathrooms, knowledge stations, and complete kitchens. Surround yourself in the bustling action at the Hetzel Union Building as you explore retail dining at the bookstore managed by Barnes & Noble.
For those able to arrive the night before the main program, tickets will be provided for Big Ten basketball action Penn State vs. Michigan, including a reception and behind the scenes tour of the Bryce Jordan Center.
