Record enrollment at Penn State Mont Alto

August 20, 2009

MONT ALTO, Pa. -- Penn State Mont Alto will open a new academic year on Monday with a record incoming class of 574 new students. That represents a 12 percent increase over fall 2008.

The previous high was in fall 2006 with 516 new students. The new students come from local communities and 19 states and territories, and many of them have housing needs. 

The campus' three residence halls can house 438 students. They filled to capacity during the summer months though the university did not have to turn students away in part to the availability of new off-campus housing. The Apex at Mont Alto apartment complex off of Slabtown Road on Danny Brook Drive is privately owned and managed, according to a campus news release.

Penn State Mont Alto will hold its Convocation ceremony on Saturday at 10:25 a.m. in the Multipurpose Recreation Center (gymnasium) on campus to mark the opening of the new academic year.
