Two admission events at campus geared to prospective students and parents

Prospective students and their families will have the opportunity to discover the benefits of attending Penn State New Kensington at two admissions events during the last week of September.

High school students can get a taste of campus life from 8:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, at "Be a Penn State Student for a Day." Participants can interact with current students, attend classes and enjoy a complimentary lunch in Cafe 780. Information about making the transition to college also will be discussed.

The fall open house at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28, gives visitors a chance to explore the University; meet with campus staff and faculty; and tour the campus with current students as hosts. Patty Brady, director of enrollment management, and the admissions staff will talk with high school students and parents about the admission process and student-aid opportunities. The open house is one of several programs planned this fall to acquaint prospective students with the campus and Penn State's wide variety of academic programs.

To register for these events, call 724-334-LION or 888-968-PAWS.
