What We Do

Here at the Penn State OCF We Offer a Variety of Events open to all students regardless of their faith.

Weekly Meetings

“Come for the food. Stay for the conversation.” The Penn State OCF meets every Thursday from 6-7 p.m. in 124 Pasquerilla. Free food is provided for all attendees. While enjoying the food, participate in our discussion topic of the week.
