Penn State Beaver, a regional campus of The Pennsylvania State University, is a 100 acre, suburban campus located 30 miles north of Pittsburgh and 20 miles north of the Pittsburgh International Airport with easy access to the excitement of the city and relaxation of the country. It is a mixed residential and commuter campus comprised of approximately 700 students. The student-centered faculty and staff are dedicated to excellence in teaching and learning. Students and faculty at Penn State Beaver have all of the resources of a major research university at their disposal, but in a small college atmosphere. Class sizes are small and the student/faculty ratio is low, so students can receive much individual attention. Students also have opportunities to participate in undergraduate research projects supervised by faculty members. The campus offers baccalaureate degrees in Administration of Justice, Business, Communications, Information Sciences and Technology, Biology, Project and Supply Chain Management, and Psychology. In addition students at the Beaver campus are offered the first two years of study for most of Penn State’s approximately 160 academic majors. The student body is largely comprised of traditional aged students, although the campus makes a concerted effort to expand programs for non-traditional students.
