You’ll also meet with staff to answer your questions about next steps, financial aid, on- and off-campus housing, and student life and resources. And, of course, you’ll meet our students, who will lead you on a walking tour of campus and answer your questions about what it’s really like to be a student at Penn State Altoona.
