Business Building remote learning room availability now featured on Penn State GO app

  • Students can now learn how many seats are available in Business Building remote learning rooms on the Penn State GO app. Click on “Academic Colleges,” “Smeal College of Business,” “Learning at Smeal,” then “Remote Learning Rooms.”
  • Starting next week, students should use their smart phone to scan a QR code posted by the door of each remote learning room when they enter, and when they exit. Those steps are essential to ensuring the accuracy of the information that appears on the app. Students should understand that while the information may not be 100 percent accurate, it is a great way to understand whether there are seats available before proceeding to rooms.
  • Smeal is the first college at Penn State to offer this feature on Penn State GO.

Smeal’s “Mask Up or Pack Up” video viewed by hundreds  

A new Back-to-Smeal video, starring Smeal faculty members, debuted last weekend. Meant to supplement the University’s Mask Up or Pack Up campaign, the video implores the Smeal Community to do its part in keeping the campus and Business Building safe this fall. For those who haven’t yet viewed it, the video can be found here.
