Get Acquainted With Penn College During March 28 Open House


The diverse “degrees that work” offered at Pennsylvania College of Technology, a national leader in applied technology education, will be on display from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the college’s Open House on Saturday, March 28.

Held twice a year, Open House provides prospective students and their families a convenient opportunity to sample campus life and to explore bachelor’s, associate and certificate programs – “degrees that work” – in more than 100 distinct career areas.

“Spring Open House is an excellent opportunity to learn about our hands-on approach to learning in which students work with experienced faculty and the latest equipment and technologies,” said Dennis L. Correll, associate dean for admissions and financial aid. “The entire campus is open for visitors to experience everything: our state-of-the-art labs, classrooms, dining facilities, residence halls, an active campus life and athletics. When you visit, you’ll know it’s the right place to earn your degree and launch your career.”

Faculty, deans and alumni will be available in instructional areas; and representatives of the Admissions Office, Athletics, Dining Services and Student Activities will be among the helpful employees on board to answer questions and assist visitors.

Potential students and their families should visit the Open House website to register, and to obtain a personalized guide, a list of campus activities, travel directions, a campus map and a list of lodging in the Williamsport area.

At Penn College, a special mission affiliate of Penn State, students learn in hands-on fashion from faculty with industry experience, using the latest equipment and technologies.

The college earned Top 10 status among public schools in the listing for Regional Colleges North in “Best Colleges 2015,” issued by U.S. News & World Report. Penn College was also named a “Military Friendly School” for the sixth consecutive year for its commitment to veterans and active-duty personnel.

Free shuttle-bus transportation will be available on main campus, as well as to nearby campuses hosting additional majors: the Schneebeli Earth Science Center near Allenwood and the Lumley Aviation Center in Montoursville.

The $50 application fee will be waived for those who apply for admission during Open House.
