MONT ALTO, Pa. - Penn State Mont Alto, taking a major step toward its goal of becoming "part of this community," will open a satellite campus at the Chambersburg (Pa.) Mall this summer.
Construction of the 43,000-square-foot facility is under way. It is sandwiched between an Eckerd/Thrift Drug store and a General Nutrition Center store on the other, said David Goldenberg, CEO of the Mont Alto campus.
At least five full-time staffers and three or four part-timers will be hired to run the new facility. It will be called Penn State Mont Alto Chambersburg Educational Center.
A map of the layout shows a computerized kiosk in the front reception area. A room behind that will house a library and resource center focusing on health and wellness.
