    Penn State is unique. Beyond University Park, we have 19 additional Commonwealth Campuses across the state of Pennsylvania! Our Commonwealth Campuses range in size from 800 students to 5,000 students and are located in equally beautiful urban and rural locations. And, since all of Penn State’s campuses offer a variety of four-year degrees, students have many options for their academic future. Our university structure allows students to spend all four years at one campus or start at one campus for the first two years before transitioning to a different campus to finish their degree. We call this our 2+2 plan, and over 50 percent of our students earn their Penn State degree this way! Spend a Summer Day is the perfect opportunity to learn more about your educational options, whether you visit different campuses or attend a variety of academic programs – start exploring today!
