Spring 2017 Highlights
We want to take a moment to thank our entire Penn State Altoona community for another successful and sustainable year! We hosted events at the Seminar Forest, a Going Green with CANVAS workshop, participated in Earth Day activities and sponsored the Spring Run Clean Up. With the hard work from our cleanup crew, we improved our community environment by removing 43 bags of trash from the stream!
All of these events could not have been made possible with out the support of our administration, faculty, staff, students, alumni and community. Have a safe and healthy summer!
