Campus plans open house on Penn State Day
As part of Penn State University’s 150th anniversary, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will join with its sister campuses throughout the state by hosting a Penn State Day Open House on Saturday, October 30 starting at 9 AM. The University is inviting prospective students and members of their families to attend this event to learn more about Penn State including valuable information on degree programs, admissions strategies, and financial aid and scholarship opportunities.
Students can complete seven baccalaureate or seven associate degrees at the Wilkes-Barre campus, or they can complete the first two years of more than 160 of the University’s degree programs and transfer to another location (including University Park) to finish their degree. Campus tours will be available and prospective students, their families, and alumni are encouraged to stay and enjoy a free tailgate party compliments of the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Society.
In conjunction with Penn State's celebration, Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell has signed a proclamation declaring Oct. 30 Penn State Day across the commonwealth. In signing the proclamation, Rendell encouraged all students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters to join in recognizing the vital role the University plays as an active community partner throughout the commonwealth.
