A 2011 《欧博官网app下载》 survey of employers shows employers prefer to hire Penn State graduates because employers said they are bright, well-rounded graduates who possess the competencies they are looking for.

Many families are worried whether they can afford to send their children to college and some are even questioning whether a college education is a worthwhile investment despite evidence that most good jobs in America are held by college graduates. College graduates also earn significantly more over a lifetime than high-school graduates and are less susceptible to losing their jobs during recessions. A college education is, therefore, one of the most important investments you will ever make.

在宾州州立大学蒙奥图分校, we are committed to making a Penn State education accessible and affordable. While we cannot make any guarantee receipt of awards and scholarships, students who meet certain criteria will automatically be considered for one or a combination of many awards and scholarships.
