Penn State York Commencement set for Dec. 21
Penn State York is celebrating its 12th annual fall commencement on Friday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center (The Pullo Center) at the campus. The Honorable Todd Russell Platts, a member of the United States Congress, representing the 19th District of Pennsylvania, is the commencement speaker.

In addition to hearing from Platts, the top associate, baccalaureate, and master’s degree graduates will also say a few words. A number of former Penn State York students who completed their degree work at another campus of Penn State will return to their home campus, York, to receive their degrees during the ceremony.
