Videos give prospective students a glimpse of the campus

Prospective students can hear about what Penn State New Kensington offers, from academics to college life to career choices, directly from students and young alumni with a series of three-minute videos which are posted on the campus' homepage.

“It’s Your Time” is a Penn State initiative that features five vignettes that extoll the advantages of enrolling at the New Kensington campus. Students and alumni talk about career opportunities, education paths, classes and student life at the campus. Even the iconic Nittany Lion gets some screen time, hosting a tour of the campus.

In the first video, “Opportunities,” students talk about internships, research projects and study-abroad programs that help campus students with career decisions. The “Choose Your Path,” video highlights the advantages of earning a four-year degree at the New Kensington campus or taking lower-level courses at the campus and completing bachelor’s degree work at the University Park campus.

“Classes” points out that the small class sizes allow hands-on learning and one-on-one relationships with professors. “Lion Tour” provides an up-close view of the campus by the Nittany Lion. Since the aphonic mascot receives top-billing in the movie, it is, naturally, a “silent” film. However, the background music is as entertaining as the Lion. The last video, “Student Life,” features the extra-curricular activities that are available to campus students. Activities include intercollegiate athletics, clubs and organizations, and fitness facilities.
