Penn State Day Fall Open House and Application Nights for prospective students

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — Penn State Lehigh Valley recently welcomed more than 350 new students to campus for the 2017-18 academic year. The Lehigh Valley campus admissions team is hosting multiple events over the coming months for the future class of students looking to begin their Penn State story.

“Whether you are looking to learn more about our campus or are ready to fill out your application to Penn State, we have something for everyone this fall,” said Denise O’Neill, director of enrollment management at Penn State Lehigh Valley.

Penn State Day Fall Open House

Prospective students and their families are invited to attend Penn State Day from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus located at 2809 Saucon Valley Road in Center Valley, Pennsylvania.

The Saturday program for prospective students and their families will include an overview of the admissions and financial aid process, off-campus housing and student life.

Throughout the day, attendees will hear from current Lehigh Valley students, faculty and staff to get their questions answered. A Campus Information Fair will offer attendees the chance to talk to different campus representatives and get more information from specific departments.
