State Snapshot: Visiting Pennsylvania’s Colleges & Universities
When you hear Pennsylvania, visions of Hershey’s Kisses and roller-coasters may pop into your head. However, Pennsylvania has much more than chocolate!
Pennsylvania is a large state that over 100 colleges and universities call home. New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, West Virginia, Ohio, and Lake Erie border Pennsylvania. With such an expansive area, there are a variety of places and activities to explore, including colleges!
Known as “The City of Brotherly Love,” Philadelphia, Pennsylvania’s largest city, is home to more than 50 institutions of higher education including the Ivy, University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, and Temple University.
Depending on the time of year, you could check out all types of sporting events ranging from the NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers to catching a more intimate college-sporting event at the University of Pittsburgh.
As you head further out from the city, you could swing by a few smaller universities like Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP) in
Indiana, PA or Seton Hill, located in Greensburg. And, while you’re in the area, just southeast of Pittsburgh, you’ll find Frank Lloyd Wright’s world-famous Fallingwater.
