Open House visitors may participate in a variety of activities:

  • Attend information sessions to learn more about the admissions process, financial aid, and academic programs and procedures
  • Attend a “Choosing a Major” session for help with selecting a career path
  • Tour the campus and view the state-of-the-art facilities and equipment
  • Meet with faculty and school deans to learn more about academic majors representing more than 100 career areas
  • Attend a housing session to learn more about on- and off-campus housing options
  • Interact with current students and learn more about student organizations and campus life at Penn College

For adults seeking the skills needed to succeed in a changing world, an informal, one-hour session will be offered from 10 to 11 a.m. in Room 133 of the college’s Center for Business & Workforce Development, 1127 W. Fourth St. Participants will learn about a wide variety of education and training opportunities from short-term classes with no tests or grades to certificate, associate- and bachelor-degree programs.
