Visit SoVA

A visit to SoVA provides an opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of our programs by hearing directly from our faculty and students, as well as the option to tour our studios, digital labs, and galleries.

SoVA’s annual Portfolio Day, which coincides with the College of Arts and Architecture’s Fall Visit Day, offers prospective students an opportunity to have a personal portfolio review with SoVA’s faculty of artists, designers, and art educators.  Participants receive portfolio-building tips and answers to questions about professional careers in art, art education, and design.

In addition to these annual events, SoVA hosts Visit Days throughout the academic year and participates in the Penn State’s Spend a Summer Day activities.

If you are unable to travel to University Park, join SoVA at a National Portfolio Day (NPDA) in Philadelphia or New York City.

Personal visits can be arranged for those who cannot attend our scheduled events.  Please contact the SoVA office on (814)863-5349 to schedule your tour. We look forward to meeting you!
