A message from Dr. R. Lorraine Bernotsky to the PennWest community

Happy New Year and welcome back! There’s a renewed energy on our campuses as students return for the start of classes and our faculty and staff gear up for serving students this spring semester. New learning opportunities lie ahead, along with a full menu of support services designed to help students reach their academic, professional, and personal goals.

Our community of educators has been hard at work, often behind the scenes, to streamline processes for scheduling courses, tracking progress to graduation, and completing other essential tasks. PennWest is making it easier than ever for our students to enjoy a premier college experience – and we are Better Together as we head into 2024.

As wintry weather gives way to spring, we will host hundreds of future students and their families on our campuses. Information sessions and guided tours are offered daily, and special events are planned for high school and transfer students who are exploring their options for higher education.

Please make our visitors feel welcome – and know how glad I am to welcome each of you to our Spring 2024 semester.
