For Prospective Students

Choosing a college may be one of the most important decisions you make and that is why we would like to invite to you to visit Penn State's College of Earth and Mineral Sciences and learn about us first-hand. While on campus, you can attend information sessions and learn about the many majors that we offer. You will also be able to talk with our professors, staff and current students. Our premiere college visitation event is EMEX; we also host Major Discovery Night and  participate in Spend a Summer Day and Link UP for interested students.
