First day of classes, students on campus

Penn State students return to in-person classes on the first day of the fall 2021 semester on Monday, Aug. 23, 2021 in University Park, Pa.

Penn State has introduced FuelRod portable charging system kiosks across campus for students and faculty to charge their electronic devices as of Friday.

The kiosks are located at the HUB-Robeson Center, common areas of the on-campus residence areas and the Business Building, according to a release.

Penn State said students can find kiosks near them by clicking “locations” on the FuelRod website. Beaver Stadium also has charging stations for students to use on game days, the release said.

There are two subscription options available, one costing $20 for 12 kit swaps and the other $25 for six months of unlimited kit swaps, according to the release.

Each purchase includes the charging unit and adapters. When a unit runs out of power, it can be recharged at a wall outlet or exchanged for a new one, the release said.
