The School of Music cordially invites high school students to the University Park campus on Monday October 9, 2017 to explore the opportunities available as a Penn State music major. Our various programs are among the finest in the country, and we welcome the opportunity to share them with you in an "open house" environment.
Our Fall Visit Day provides an up close and personal look at our classes, private lessons, and ensembles. You may also sit in on informational sessions regarding Penn State admissions and view displays regarding study abroad opportunities and financial aid. In addition, participants may also have the chance to visit the residence halls that serves as the College of Arts and Architecture Interest House.
