Pennsylvania Colleges and Universities
Looking for a college town with a bit of history? One of the first American colonies, Pennsylvania celebrates cultural and regional diversity, from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Susquehanna River valley to the Atlantic shore. Host to the country's Amish farming population, Pennsylvania is also home to Philadelphia with its Liberty Bell and Independence Hall heritage, and the bustling city of Pittsburgh, with its riverfront nightlife and entertainment. When city life gets too hectic, drive to the Pocono Mountains, where lakes, streams, and woods lure outdoor enthusiasts.
Potential college students will be pleased to know that Pennsylvania's education tradition is as rich as its history. There are more than 150 public and private colleges and universities across the state of Pennsylvania. University Park is home to the state-supported Pennsylvania State University which, combined with Philadelphia's Temple University and the University of Pittsburgh, comprises the major state system of post-secondary education. Private schools include Carnegie Mellon University and Drexel University.
