New Chambersburg Center
opens at shopping mall

Penn State Mont Alto recently opened Penn State's first location in a shopping mall. The new Chambersburg Center, located in the Chambersburg Mall, will provide the community with increased access to the degree programs and continuing education services.

The Chambersburg Center offers a diverse range of community education programs with a special emphasis on health, technology and business. Penn State Mont Alto is offering three categories of courses at the Chambersburg Center: traditional for-credit classes; non-credit professional development training; and non-credit technology courses.

Housed in a storefront location in the east wing of the Chambersburg Mall, the 4,300 square-foot facility features a computer training room with 20 laptop computers and high-speed Internet access, a lecture room for traditional classes, a seminar room geared to professional continuing education programs, and a public resource library devoted to health and wellness topics.

The fall schedule already includes more than 100 courses, seminars and other planned activities.
