New Kensington open houses set for prospective students, families

Prospective students and their families will have the opportunity to discover the benefits of attending Penn State New Kensington at two spring open house events: 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 12, and 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 15.

The first event, Spring Open House, gives participants 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 about the admission process and student-aid opportunities.

The next event, Transfer Student Open House, will review the admissions process for transfer students. Discussions will focus on important points about admissions and financial aid services available to this special population. Students are welcome to bring copies of any post-secondary transcripts with them for an unofficial review of credit transfer.

The open houses are two of several programs in the spring and summer to acquaint prospective students with the campus and Penn State's wide variety of academic programs. To register for an event, call 724-334-LION or 888-968-PAWS.
