Graduate and Professional Schools Visit Penn State



As much as I hate to admit it, Asher Roth said it best: I wanna go to college for the rest of my life/ Sip Banker’s Club and drink Miller Lite/ On Thirsty Thursday and Tuesday Night Ice/ And I can get pizza a dollar a slice.

Take the above lyrics, throw in some football, a splash of Creamery ice cream and a spritz of your Penn State perfume, shake it all up and out comes Happy Valley.

But wait. Apparently there is something else we’re here for… oh yeah, school. As it turns out, the underlying goal of college is to get out, get jobs, get educated, and get money. And Penn State is actually preparing us for that future.

Next week, a fair will be held in the HUB for Graduate and Professional Schools Week. The fair will consist of Law School Day, Medical School and Health Related Programs Day, and Graduate School Day Oct. 19-21, respectively.

Before you attend, make sure to research some of the schools attending so you have more to talk about than pizza for a dollar a slice. After the fair, there will be free practice tests, prep courses and various workshops.

It’s time to pop that happy bubble and get out there!
