High school students invited to Spend a Summer Day, Night events

High school students will have five 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, one on Friday, July 24, and one on Friday, August 14. Each begins at 10 a.m. with an Information Fair; faculty from the Sam and Irene Black School of Business, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Science, School of Engineering, and the college’s nursing program will be available to talk with and answer questions from students and their parents. Representatives from admissions, financial aid, student activities, and the college’s Honors program also will be on hand.

The fair will be followed by academic, admissions and financial aid presentations, walking tours of campus, and a picnic lunch. The program concludes at 2 p.m.

Three evening events will follow a similar schedule, including a picnic dinner. They begin at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, July 22, Thursday, July 23, and Thursday, August 13.

The events are free to students and their families, but advance registration is required and can be made online at behrend.psu.edu, by calling (814) 898-6100 (toll free (866) 374-3378), or by e-mailing behrend.admissions@psu.edu.
