Penn State York Launches Blog Site

8/11/2008 —

Learning what it’s like to be a college student from other students is one of the reasons Penn State York has launched a new blog site.  Four students and two admissions counselors are offering their experiences online in an effort to answer questions and ultimately encourage people to be a student at Penn State York.

“We’re doing a blog to attempt to give prospective students an inside look at what it’s like to live a day in the life of an average Penn State York student.  Readers will be able to gain access to students’ lives inside and outside the classroom, as well as start conversations with the bloggers about any issues that may arise in their college search,” said Sara Hilton, an admissions counselor at Penn State York coordinating and participating in the blog.

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions in life and Hilton and others at the campus hope the blog will provide another tool to assist students in making their college decision. Those interested in blogging simply go to http://pennstateyork.blogspot.com/ and click on the Create Blog and Sign In to set up an account and get started.  For more information about the blog, contact Sara Hilton, admissions counselor at (717) 771-4040 or seh12@psu.edu.  To learn more about Penn State York and its variety of programs please call the admissions office at (717) 771-4040 to schedule a visit or check out the Web site at http://www.yk.psu.edu/.
