Penn State Lehigh Valley welcomed about 240 new students Wednesday.

They had a packed agenda meeting with other new students, current students, faculty and staff.

"We want the new students to meet new people, to be introduced to Penn State, get acclimated to where their classes will be and to feel comfortable on campus," said Tiffany Cresswell-Yeager

Besides getting a feel for the school, the students also had a picnic and were given the chance to win football tickets.
