Penn State Shenango

On the state’s western border, Penn State Shenango combines the quality of Penn State academics with the personal attention of a small campus.

The Lartz Commons is a popular area on campus for students, faculty and staff to socialize and study. The landscaping of the beautiful pedestrian mall was designed by Penn State architecture students. The 40-acre campus is in downtown Sharon, about ninety minutes from Pittsburgh and Erie.

Almost 840 students are enrolled at Shenango, many of whom choose to live in the privately-owned housing available near campus.
