Visit and Campus Tours

At PennWest, we offer many opportunities to learn more about life on one of our three campuses. Whether it is the picturesque, riverside campus at California, the beautiful lakeside campus at Edinboro, or the charming college town of Clarion, PennWest offers a place that you can call home. Below are a few ways in which you and your family can get an insider’s view into PennWest.

Look for the PennWest Admissions Representative at a college fair near you this fall.  Be sure to look for the PennWest table/booth at the fair to learn more about PennWest California, Clarion and Edinboro campuses!
