Penn State Altoona, as an extension of Penn State found in Logan Township, Pennsylvania, has been in a rapid state of growth almost since its founding all the way back in 1939. It now provides over 4,000 students baccalaureate and associate’s degree programs in over 30 disciplines, such as early childhood education, rail transportation engineering and criminal justice. It directly supports undergraduates’ involvement in university research via annual research fairs at the Miscianga Family Center and Hawthorn Building, and proudly displays several special collections of children’s literature, war letters and rare books at the Robert E. Eiche Library. Campus life is active and rich, here, too; seventy-five student organizations offer a variety of things to do, six Greek chapters keep off-campus life exciting, and the Altoona Nittany Lions enjoy competing within Division III of the NCAA in over a dozen varsity sports. Penn State Altoona—here to serve, to educate, to mold the future!
