So much of what we do is aimed at helping young people get a strong start in their careers. This includes several examples of activities and programs that occur on campus over the summer.
One of our newest summer programs is the Allentown Partnership, which offers rising high school juniors from the Allentown School District an opportunity to experience college through classes, student life activities and discussion groups.
As counselors they were responsible for fostering a healthy environment for the Allentown students and led programs that addressed basic health and safety skills, university services and personal growth.
Part of our mission as a public university is service to our community, our region and the commonwealth. We were pleased to welcome this group of students this summer and open the doors of higher education for them.
