Individual Appointment & Tour for High School Students (Noon) - December 7, 2017

The way your story unfolds is up to you. We're here to help you explore the Penn State degree that matches your life, expectations, and aspirations. We're happy to help high school Juniors & Seniors understand our admission process, explore Penn State majors, or inquire about student services on campus.

Learn first-hand what it's like to be a Penn Stater by taking a student-guided tour of Penn State Brandywine! Led by Lion Ambassadors, campus tours offer a student's perspective on campus life and academics. Tours take approximately 60 minutes, so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.

Then meet with one of our Admissions Counselors for a one-on-one appointment where you can discuss academics, application procedures, and student activities. 

An optional sit-down with the Financial Aid department is also available on a first-come, first serve basis.

Optional 

A quick sit-down meeting with our Financial Aid liason for incoming students. These meetings are on a First Come, First Serve basis.

The decision on where to go to college is perhaps the most important decision so far in your life.  We want to be sure you have a thorough understanding of the economics of your decision, and that you have the information you need to make an informed decision on where you’ll attend college.

During your 15 minute meet & greet, you will have an opportunity to sit down one-on-one with a member of our Financial Aid office staff. We will discuss next steps and address any questions you have about the financial aid process or your particular family situation.  If you have any unusual circumstances, this is the perfect opportunity to begin that conversation with us.  The more we know about you and your situation, the better we can serve you.

We look forward to spending some time with you to help you make the best informed decision about attending Penn State.

*Don’t fret if you don't have time for today, we will have a Financial Aid program in February.
