Sponsored by the Sallie Mae Fund, a student loan program, Kids2 College highlights the value and accessibility of a higher education to young people. Gail Carr, Director of Continuing Education at PSU’s Frost School, said the University embraces the program.

“By working with these young people, we’re encouraging them to think about higher education opportunities down the road,” Carr said.

Linwood teacher Kristie Morris said her students enjoyed their visit to classrooms, laboratories and
learning about the possibilities of higher education.

“We’re thankful and happy PSU coordinated with us on this program, it’s invaluable for the kids’ future,” said Morris.

Some of the highlights of the day included a tour of the campus, a visit to the library, a meteorology lab, art studio, career services and financial aid.
