Discover Penn State Wilkes-Barre
Penn State Wilkes-Barre announces its one-day Open House for Saturday, Oct. 20, starting at 10am in the Athletics and Recreation building. The statewide event, known as Penn State Day, is a program designed to help High School students and their families learn more about the University, its facilities, resources, and admissions procedures. Students can find out about scholarship opportunities, financial aid, academic programs, athletics, and student activities. During the day, admissions counselors will be on-hand to help students explore their degree options and weigh their academic strengths. Plus, everyone that attends the Open House can meet Penn State faculty, staff, and students, all while enjoying a complimentary lunch in the Student Commons.
Students and graduates who are interested in attending Penn State can choose to begin one of over 160 programs here, then go on to complete their degree at another Penn State location, including University Park. Prospective students can also decide to stay close and enroll in one of 8 Bachelor's and 6 Associate degree programs that are offered at the Wilkes-Barre campus. With convenient class schedules, affordable tuition, outstanding faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities, Penn State Wilkes-Barre provides the resources of a large research university in a small college setting.
