Brothers in business

They’re still in college but have already launched a successful business. Brothers Matthew and Patrick Nelson are learning even more about how to operate their company through their courses at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

Getting to Know You

Get to know Hannah Farber, one of Pittston Area’s valedictorians who is a first-year student at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

“Starting at Wilkes-Barre and getting to know my professors and so many of the other students will be a better environment for me. I also like that I can be at home for my first two years,” Farber said.

Back to campus

Wondering what fall semester is going to look like at Penn State Wilkes-Barre?
What will classrooms look like? Will there be somewhere for students to join remote classes while they’re on campus? Will there still be student activities and events?

What’s in a (town) name?

The campus’ mailing address is now 44 University Drive, Dallas, PA 18612, a change from the previous Lehman-based addresses the campus used for mail and deliveries. This address change is just one of many alterations that Penn State Wilkes-Barre has seen in its 104 years of existence.

From calculator to computers

She’s nothing if not adaptable: from an elementary-school teacher in Europe to a college professor in the U.S.; from a business instructor to an IST professor; and from teaching in person to delivering Zoom classes. Now, after more than 20 years at the campus, Frouke de Quillettes has taught her last course at Penn State Wilkes-Barre.

The reality of research

It’s a new technology. It’s a collaboration among students in a variety of majors. It provides research experience. And it’s only happening at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, where students are exploring the world of virtual reality to research and enhance surveying engineering education.

Feeding the need

At a time when much of the world has ground to a halt, hunger and food insecurity haven’t.

That’s why Penn State Wilkes-Barre has shifted to an online request system for the campus food bank, continuing to serve any campus students who might need it.

Repairing harm to reduce crime

Penn State Wilkes-Barre's administration of justice program focuses on restorative justice, training students to learn more about restorative philosophies and practices. Restorative practices are designed for all parties involved to heal properly and strengthen their future relationships.
