“This would not have been possible if it hadn’t been for my time at Penn Highlands. I learned so much about business law, development, management, accounting, and more. My degree gave me the confidence I needed to get started. If it had not been for my education after high school there would be no Sci-Fi Valley Con today.”

“I don’t think I would have been successful in my career if I had not started my academic journey at Penn Highlands. The classes, instructors, and staff were encouraging, supportive, and genuine. The environment of support I received outside of the classroom paired with the education I learned in the classroom gave me what I needed to later attend a four-year institution and successfully start my career.”
