"These scholarships help ensure that local students can take advantage of the opportunities for growth and achievement that Penn State Abington offers," Andrew August, interim chancellor at Penn State Abington, said.
Penn State Abington offers many virtual opportunities for incoming students to make new friends as well as connect with faculty and staff during the summer through live Zoom meetings, webinars, and online events.
This summer, given the restrictions of COVID-19, incoming Penn Staters are experiencing orientation virtually, and the Penn State students who serve as orientation leaders are more important than ever.
Following a three-month comprehensive planning process, Penn State officials have determined that the University can meet or exceed the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s guidelines for colleges and universities, and look forward to welcoming back faculty, staff and students to resume on-campus, in-person classes and other activities this fall in a limited fashion.
For the past three years, WPSU, Penn State University Park’s local NPR and PBS affiliate station, and the Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program (PennTAP) have collaborated to host the statewide Inc.U undergraduate student startup competition. The competition culminates in the six finalists competing head-to-head on the live “Shark Tank-style” TV show, "The Investment."
