Penn State Worthington Scranton Schedules Last Summer Open House of 2011

Penn State Worthington Scranton will hold this summer's final Spend A Summer Evening Open House  Thursday, August 11 at 6 p.m.

The Spend A Summer Evening program is for students, both traditional and non-traditional, that are starting their college searches or looking to register for college in the near future.  It is a fun and relaxed way for them to visit the campus and meet other Penn State students, faculty, and staff, while also having an opportunity to ask any questions they have about pursuing a college degree at Penn State, said Sandy Feather, associate director of enrollment.

Prospective students will learn about the Penn State commonwealth campus system, Penn State's 160 majors, and the nine baccalaureate and five associate degree programs offered at Worthington Scranton.  They will also get to tour the campus facilities, learn about extra-curricular activities, and hear about the university-wide amenities available at Penn State Worthington Scranton.

Faculty and staff will also be on hand to discuss the campus' honors programs, student clubs, financial aid, housing, advising and admissions criteria and the college application process. Tours of the campus and its facilities will also be offered.
