High school students and their parents will have four opportunities this summer to attend informal-yet-informative sessions with faculty and other representatives of Penn State Erie, The Behrend College.

The college will host two Spend a Summer Day events, on Friday, July 27, and on Friday, Aug. 10. Each begins at 1 p.m. with a Student Services Fair; 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 academic, admissions and financial aid presentations, walking tours of campus, and treats of Penn State’s famous Berkey Creamery ice cream. The program concludes at 4:15 p.m.

Two evening events will follow a similar schedule. They begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday, July 26, and Thursday, Aug. 9.
