Similar goals; different paths

Emma Sands and Abby Yatsko both graduated from the same high school and attended Penn State Wilkes-Barre after high school. After that, their paths diverged—but each will earn a degree from Penn State this year, Sands in business and Yatsko in accounting. Students who want to study business have options at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, including pursuing their bachelor’s degree here or transitioning to another campus after two years.
