NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. — 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. The programs, Fall Open House and Application Day, will acquaint students and parents with the campus and Penn State's wide variety of academic majors.

The open house, 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 24, gives visitors a chance to explore the University, meet with campus staff and faculty, and tour the campus with current students as hosts. 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 application workshop is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28. The admissions staff will help students complete the application form and answer questions about the admissions process. The $65 application fee will be waived. Appointments are highly recommended. If you can’t make it, a second Application Day program will be held at the same time on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

“Both Fall Open House and Application Day give students and their families an opportunity to connect with our admissions and financial aid staff," said Patty Brady, director of enrollment. "We take pride in the personal attention we provide to students, and these events provide a chance for us to start building relationships with our prospective students and families and to share all the advantages of Penn State New Kensington.”

To register for these events, call 724-334-LION or 888-968-PAWS.
