UPUA to Introduce Subsidized Test Prep Classes

Last night, the University Park Undergraduate Association voted to introduce subsidized test prep classes from The Princeton Review for graduate and professional standardized tests.

The vote passed overwhelmingly, with only three votes for the other package, presented to the UPUA by Kaplan.

The Assembly preferred Princeton because of its lower cost and offer of more classroom instruction. “We’re all on tight budgets as college students, and these are much more reasonable rates,” UPUA Vice-President Colleen Smith said. “It enhances the classes that will be available, extends The Princeton Review program at Penn State and gives students more opportunities.”

Bottom line, these very expensive courses for these crucial tests are now available to students and faculty at dramatically lower prices. For more details, check out the Collegian‘s coverage.
