Choosing a major may be one of the most important decisions you make and that is why we would like to invite to you to visit Penn State's College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and learn about us first-hand. If you know you want to be a MatSE major, than you are at the right place! If you are still deciding on a major, we have lots of resources and events to help you find the major that works best for your interests. While on campus, you can attend information sessions and learn about the many majors that we offer. You will also be able to talk with our professors, staff and current students. Our premiere college visitation event is EMEX; we also host Spend a Summer Day and interested students can participate in Major Discovery Night and Link UP.
The Earth and Mineral Sciences EXposition (EMEX) is the College’s annual student-run Open House. All high school students, current Penn State students, and transfer students who are considering an EMS major are invited to attend.
