Prospective students and their families will have the opportunity to discover the benefits of attending Penn State New Kensington at two admissions events during the last week of September.

Patty Brady, director of enrollment management, and the Admissions staff will talk with high school students and parents about the admission process and student-aid opportunities. The open house is one of several programs planned this fall to acquaint prospective students with the campus and Penn State's wide variety of academic programs.

Participants can interact with current students, attend classes and enjoy a complementary lunch in Cafe 780. Information about admissions and financial aid will also be available.

FOR THE FUTURE CAMPAIGN
Gifts from corporate supporters count toward the goals of For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students. This University-wide fundraising effort is directed toward a shared vision of Penn State as the most comprehensive, student-centered research university in America. The University is engaging Penn State’s alumni and friends as partners in achieving six key objectives: ensuring student access and opportunity, enhancing honors education, enriching the student experience, building faculty strength and capacity, fostering discovery and creativity, and sustaining the University’s tradition of quality. The campaign’s top priority is keeping a Penn State degree affordable for students and families. The For the Future campaign is the most ambitious effort of its kind in Penn State’s history, with the goal of securing $2 billion in private support by 2014. Penn State New Kensington's goal is $3 million.
