Spend a Summer Day at Penn State Behrend

ERIE, Pa. -- High school students and their families are invited to attend informal-yet-informative summer admissions events with faculty and other representatives of Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

The college will host two Spend a Summer Day programs, on Friday, July 11, and Friday, Aug. 1. Both begin at 1 p.m. with a Student Services Fair at which faculty from the Sam and Irene Black School of Business, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Science, and the School of Engineering will be available to talk with and answer questions from students and their parents.

The fair will be followed by presentations on academics, admissions and financial aid, walking tours of campus and free scoops of Penn State’s famous Berkey Creamery ice cream. The program concludes at 4:15 p.m.

An evening event on Thursday, July 31, will follow a similar schedule, beginning at 5 p.m.

In addition, the college will hold twice-daily "Get to Know Us" sessions on most summer weekdays. Students who make any type of admissions visit to campus this summer will have their $50 Penn State application fee waived.

Spend a Summer Day and Get to Know Us events are free to prospective students and their families, but advance registration is required and can be made online at behrend.psu.edu/visit, by calling 814-898-6100 (toll free 866-374-3378), or by emailing behrend.admissions@psu.edu.
