Despite everything that's happened at Penn State over the past few weeks, it's largely been business as usual here in the admissions office. Applications are still coming in and we're hearing from lots of students and families who are excited about the great things a Penn State education can offer them.
Anne Rohrbach, our executive director, recently talked with the New York Times' The Choice blog about this year's applications.
In addition, Penn State President Rodney Erickson sent letters to prospective students reminding them of the university's commitment to academics, alumni connections, and community service through organizations like THON. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette goes into more detail about the president's letter.
Our student tour guides are as excited as ever to welcome visitors to University Park and express their Penn State pride on tours. This angle was covered by Onward State, a student-run news blog at Penn State that talked with the Lion Ambassadors tour group. Speaking of blogs, check our student blogs to hear our interns weigh in on recent events in their own words.
As always, if you have any questions about recent events or the admissions process, please don't hesitate to contact us.
