High School Students - Schedule a Tour

No matter where you are in the college selection process, we're happy to help you understand our admission process, explore Penn State majors, or inquire about student services on campus. Learn first-hand what it's like to be a Penn Stater by taking a student-guided tour of Penn State Brandywine! Led by Lion Ambassadors, campus tours offer a student's perspective on campus life and academics. Tours take approximately forty minutes, so wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather. Then meet with one of our Admissions Counselors for a one-on-one appointment where you can discuss academics, application procedures, and student activities.
