PSU Harrisburg Ready to Grow

Could Penn State Harrisburg be the next Happy Valley?

Probably not, but they are on their way to becoming more of a college town. With enrollment on the rise, officials and developers in Middletown and Lower Swatara Township are making moves toward a student-focused community.

So far, there have been proposals for new apartment complexes to be built near campus and local businesses are trying to figure out how to become more college friendly. In addition, an internship program will be started in the borough’s offices.
