Correll, associate dean for admissions and financial aid. “Students learn alongside industry-experienced faculty using the latest equipment and technologies, no matter what the field of study.”

“The entire campus is open to tour from labs and classrooms to dining facilities and residence halls,” Correll continued. “You have to visit Penn College to know this is the right place for your education and future career.”
