Penn State Mont Alto to purchase two properties adjacent to campus

January 22, 2010

University Park, Pa. — The University Board of Trustees today (Jan. 22) approved the purchase of two properties in Franklin County to be used by the Penn State Mont Alto campus.

Both properties are directly adjacent to the campus near its main entrance. The first is a .75-acre property that will be acquired from Jay Barrett. The second is a three-acre, undeveloped property that will be acquired from Pine Grove Trust.

The acquisitions provide the University with future expansion opportunities.

"The Penn State Mont Alto campus has long been recognized for its park-like setting," said David C. Gnage, Penn State Mont Alto chancellor. "The acquisition of these two properties protects and enhances that setting. It also further solidifies the sense that you are entering a special place when you arrive at Penn State Mont Alto, a serene and inviting place where students can focus on learning."
