It's your story. Take the lead.

Penn State Schuylkill offers you personalized attention that’s simply not possible at other schools. Your professors will know you by name, collaborate with you on exciting projects and research, and know you well enough to write a stellar reference for your first job.

But, you might not be thinking of your career right now. Maybe you're wondering if you'll fit in and make new friends. Students make friends easily on campus and stay in touch long after graduation. Students here don’t get mad at each other about silly things, except for maybe a rowdy game of basketball pick-up.

It’s a group of characteristics that make a Penn State Schuylkill education unique. We strive for excellence in and out of the classroom as a Commonwealth College of Penn State, a Top 50 nationally ranked university by U.S. News & World Report.

Your opportunities to gain valuable experiences that prepare you for exciting careers and a lifelong love of learning is boundless. You may engage in a number of experiential learning activities on and off campus, including research, study abroad, internships, capstone projects and so much more.

Schuylkill campus students don’t just talk about wanting to change the world; they value community and civic engagement and contribute 10,000 hours annually to improving the world they inhabit. They understand the importance of investing their time and talents for the planet they will inherit.

You can attend college and turn the pages of your calendar in hopes of quickly moving time forward.
